And block roads to make sure their client is successful, that's what I hear anyway.

I always thought they were just a brand and profited of tracking down big bucks and being there when the kill happens.  Didn't realize they were actual guides.

I have a couple buddies in the industry who know Doyle and say he is pretty crooked. But they absolutely kill some monster bucks for big buck$. That hunt has lost some of it's mystique in my eyes now that all of instagram knows every buck on the island by name.  :twocents:

Mossback does a lot of hunts for free if it’s in a high quality area just so he can have photo and video rights for it because there’s money in that too.

I am not sure how much this specific tag costed the hunter, in addition to any agreement he may have had with mossback.  I know some of the Antelope island tags have been auctioned off for more than $250k.
