Attending the Expo is a great way to get your off season blood boiling. We attended the hunting expo here in Salt Lake, Utah last weekend and had an opportunity to visit with some great manufactures and retailers working hard to make our hunts enjoyable. In this economy we need to do all we can to support the Ma and Pa shops in our area. We have already had some of our favorite shops shut down due to the economy and it effects us all.
So at this expo Mossback had Spyder Bull on display. Right off you can tell how it got its name it has a ton of mass in the antlers. It is an amazing animal. We got the opportunity to speak with Doyle Moss for a few minutes. I was able to take a few things from that conversation. One he really is a nice guy, we went on Saturday afternoon and the place was packed. Doyle was doing all he could to get around and shake hands with as many people as possible. He also gave us the DVD of the Spyder Bull hunt. After watching the hunt I can tell you that he is very passionate about hunting. And just like the rest of us out there when we are passionate we can get? a little competitive. With that said there was several parts in the video where they interviewed different individuals that kept track of the Spyder Bull and assisted in the hunt. From everything that I could see they did most of the scouting with High Powered spotting scopes from lower elevations. Doyle’s comment was simply this “Its official now so I don’t care to deal with the speculation anymore”
It was great to rub shoulders with the rest of the Addicted family. Here are some photos of the expo.
This buck was shot in Utah in 1938. It has a 47.5 inch spread.
We ran into Jeff Foxworthy checking out the Spyder Bull.
