November 30, 1967

The Pendleton Times last week carried the story of a fight to the death between two mighty bucks in the Smoke Hole country, observed by Mrs. Carl Kimple. One deer was lightly larger than the other and it was out. The loser, in its exhausted condition, fell over a 50-foot cliff to his death. The defeated animal had a massive rack of 19 points and the bigger one is still king in the Smoke Hole.
