Idaho hunter Dennis Austad (you may recognize him as the hunter who took the world record elk in 2008) was the winning bidder for a buck mule deer tag on Antelope Island this fall at the recent Western Hunting & Conservation Expo held in Salt Lake City. Ninety percent of Austad's winning bid will be used for habitat and conservation work at Antelope Island State Park. The remaining funds will be retained by the Mule Deer Foundation, which auctioned the tag, to help with its mission to restore, improve and protect mule deer and blacktail deer and habitat. Mule Deer Foundation CEO Miles Moretti told the Salt Lake Tribune about auction. "That's a record for all deer hunting permits," He said. "The last record was $265,000 for a Utah statewide mule deer hunting tag."
