Past Super Hunt Winners

Saturday, September 20, 2014 

“Calling in a 354 inch 8x9 Bull in the rut was really something to experience. I'll never forget it! Thanks to my friends and to IDFG for the excellent tag program my year was a huge success! I'm looking forward to dropping some tickets in the bucket next year!” – Jack Pederson, 2010 Super Hunt Winner

Ryan Smith, 2007 Super Hunt Winner Best $50 I Ever Spent

It all started with phone call from my brother, Dallas. "You lucky SOB, your name was drawn for the Super tag," my brother told me. "I couldn't believe it - best $50 I have ever spent."

"After the initial shock wore off, it was time to start scouting for the "WOW" buck."

Ryan's Super Hunt adventure ended with him getting his "WOW" buck.

The buck unofficially scored 220" Boone & Crockett, and is 34 1/2" wide.

The state record score for a typical mule deer is 215 5/8, and for a nontypical it is 320 4/8. The Boone and Crockett world record typical mule is 226 4/8, and nontypical is 355 2/8.

"Just to be able to choose any hunt was amazing. It's a hunter's dream. I wanted to hunt a place with few people and a lot of big bucks. That's just what I did. After hunting for nine days and looking over a ton of bucks, I saw him."
