Default Spider bull has been killed

Earlier this morning, Denny Austad (the Governor's tag holder), killed the Spider bull. He spent nearly an entire month hunting this great bull. Last week, they found him but Denny missed a 190 yard shot. Today, they closed the deal. While I can't believe they already have a good idea of his measurements, word is he grosses 500 4/8 and nets around 488!

Congratulations to Denny Austad and the Mossback crew!

I understand from SEVERAL sources that Doyle Moss and his guides camp on the animals. Have a great ability to have vehicle failures that block road access to other hunters, and persuade the animals to go to private land he has leased. In my opinion a VERY shady deal, at best!!!!!
He is NOT the most popular guide in Utah for his well known tactics.

Deeker, your 'sources' are wrong. You come on here and trash the guy and his guides, and I'll bet you've never been around any of them. You might not realize it, but I spent twelve days hunting in the same area as them. I never witnessed anything like you're alleging. I did find a road blocked by a cut down tree, but the landowner did it to keep everyone off his property. They hunted their asses off while I was there, and for two weeks plus after the bow season ended. How is that camping on an animal? They hunted him for nearly six weeks, and a full month with the governors tag holder. And you come on here and trash these guys. The jealousy displayed by some people is really getting old.....
