This was the very first Arizona auction tag my Dad was involved with. Art Dubs purchased the tag and heard through the grapevine that my Dad was a pretty good antelope hunter, though not really a guide at the time. Art decided to give him a chance and hired him. My Dad scoured the Plateau that year and found the buck you see above! The buck officially scored 90 7/8 SCI and 88 4/8 BC and won Arizona's award for the biggest buck taken in the state in 1990. Also, notice the white t-shirt my Dad is wearing. Even back then, long before he knew where this antelope road was going to take him, he wore a white t-shirt.
The buck measured 18 1/8 inches long on both horns and had a 6 1/8 inch left prong and a 6 2/8 inch right prong. The bases were both 7 1/8 inches.
According to the AAF's tag fund revenue list their were two tags auctioned in 1990 - the total revenue for both was $11,000. However, their sheet (and mine) don't list who the other tag buyer was or what kind of buck he took. If I find out, or if anyone reading this knows, I'll post an updated version of this post with the new information.
