In 1992 Sam Jaksick Jr. bought one of the two Arizona auction tags and Robert E. Petersen bought the other one. The total bid for these two tags was $21,700. Jaksick elected to hire Pronghorn Guide Service once again while Petersen chose Larry Heathington of Sheep Ltd. for his first foray into the Arizona antelope country.
Sam and Tony hunted Unit 10's infamous Coconino Plateau at a time when there were well over 100 tags being issued for the unit. Early in the hunt Sam passed a buck near Farmdam that was later taken by a friend of Tony's, Steve Hopkins, and scored 91 6/8 B&C. Sam passed because he was enamored with the look of another buck that Tony had found - the Sandstone buck. Sam decided he was the one he wanted. As you can see from the photos Sam and Tony didn't have an easy time putting Sandstone down as it took them all day to do it, but Sandstone officially scored 86 4/8 B&C and was the second largest buck entered from Arizona in 1992.
Petersen took his buck in 17B. I don't believe Petersen entered any of his heads into the record books (except the two he took in 2000) so I asked Larry Heathington awhile back what all of Mr. Petersen's bucks green scored. According to Larry this buck scored 88 6/8.
