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:

He's definitely straight-arming that deer.

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.

It was 410 last year, 390 the year before.  Not sure what this year was.  I think mossyback has exclusive rights to this hunt as it’s a money maker for the Utah fish and Game and I believe he is part of organizing this for them.
