Utah’s 2008 Governor’s Tag & Sportman’s Tag – Filled

So rumor has it…actually confirmed truth that the GOV tag was filled Thursday the 4th at about 5 PM. Awesome buck, yes I’ve seen several photos of him but DO NOT have permission to post and so I will not. But this buck has TONS of mass, about 46″ worth and is 34 1/2″ wide. Killed and guided by a bunch of great guys.

Rough gross score of 207″, but he looks a lot more impressive than the score so no worries about that.

Also the Sportsmans tag was also rumored to have tagged out out yesterday on the Henry Mtns., some busted tines but a huge buck with a big score. Congrats to HER, the husband and Crew. I know they put a ton of miles in and lots of gas money etc.  Score is said to be 220-230″ with several inches of busted tines.

So it looks like Utah’s tags are officially over for 2008, a great year!

UPDATE from the Sportsman’s tag hunter herself…

Doyle Moss scored him at 230 and 2/8″.

He had easily over 21″ of broken tines that would have put him over 250 (Doyle says 251) and there is one broken cheater that we have no idea how long it was so he was probably bigger than that. Before I shot him we thought he was a 9X7. We just couldn’t get a good look at him. Turns out he was a 14X9.

He was a smart old deer ( and I do mean OLD!) and he was really hard to even find to look at. His mass is unbelievable! You need to see him in person. He is crazy big!

I will work on a story later. We have got some decent pics, but they are still on the camera. Doyle has the best pics, so I’ll need to get them from him. There were a bunch of other guys that took pics as well so we’ll see how they turned out too!

I’ll talk to you later,



Update #2 (pics)

WOW!! What a buck.

Welcome Fellow Sportsman, Hunters, Mule Deer, and big game lovers. My name is Brett Wilson, and I simply have a passion and love for Mule Deer. I'm simply put a "die hard" when it comes to big bucks. Nothing thrills me more than putting my binoculars, scope, or better yet; my camera on a huge buck. My passion for the outdoors and nature has driven me to create a site where we can all enjoy some beautiful information, tips, resources, and photos of some of natures finest animals. I will do just about anything to get close to a big mule deer and film him. These animals are simply magnificent. Although I have yet to kill the elusive "trash factor" buck. I continue to enjoy my time in nature filming these animals knowing they are still out there roaming hills alive and well. It has always been a goal of mine to create a web site, or online magazine where we can enjoy sharing experiences, stories, and quality information with all hunting lovers. I appreciate your visit to MULEYMADNESS.COM'S WEBLOG and welcome any comments or suggestions. I hope you will check back often and send in and share your philosophies on hunting. Yes, trophy Mule Deer are truly in the eye of the beholder. My personal favorite is mass, I love mass with extra kickers coming off. Yes, width is impressive. But mass and cheaters are simply awesome. I hope to provide you the viewers with many crisp photos year after year. The bucks I film are as wild as Mule Deer get, and getting close to these deer can be a tedious and very time consuming process. Sometimes it's just plain luck. But the moment the big muley walks 25 feet from me it's all worth it.
