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.
