We heard a rumor that the Utah Antelope Auction Tag sold for $40,000! I haven't seen the news posted anywhere online yet, but I'll keep my eyes peeled. If this is true then either someone already knows of a giant buck somewhere in Utah or the guy was just plain crazy. This amount will easily set the record for the Utah Auction Tag.
Here's the buck I took in Wyoming this past season. It's been officially scored for both B&C and SCI and is now tied for the B&C Wyoming State Record with a score of 91 2/8. The buck also scores 92 4/8 SCI.
Despite how the photos look, I actually had to crawl through the snow for about 45 minutes as it was melting. It was definitely a different type of hunting experience for someone who primarily hunts in AZ and NM.
