Idaho hunter spends $310,000 for a Utah mule deer tag

Dennis Austad of Ammon set a record during the recent Western Hunting & Conservation Expo held in Salt Lake City by bidding $310,000 for the right to hunt a buck mule deer on Antelope Island.

Austad also spent $160,000 for the tag last year, and he bagged a huge non-typical buck, which brings his bill for two Antelope Island hunts to $470,000. Antelope Island State Park is in Salt Lake, and hunting there is highly restricted.
