In 2012 Silver Sage Outfitters saw many clients fulfill a dream of connecting on a true trophy class buck.
In addition to excellent mulies and whitetails, a number of terrific antelope were also in the cards this year. Scroll through the photos below to see some more of our 2011 hunters with their outstanding trophies.
Richard Katsma took this heavy horned brute at 35 yards when he came in hard to the decoy.
Beard Hobbs returned for his second antelope hunt with us and took this 75" buck on the last day of his hunt after he charged past the decoy at 10 yards!!
Jose Smith took this old fighter at 17 yards when he chased a young buck right up to the decoy where Jose was at full draw!!
Geuser Stool traveled from Germany and took his first ever antelope, our best of the year, 16" long and grossing 83" B&C.
Custom knife builder Peter Demmer, likes 'em high wide and heavy and certainly accomplished that with this beautiful pronghorn on the first day of his rifle hunt.
After passing up this heavy buck on the first day, Jason St. Michael and his guide Justin Eckert thought better of their decision and went back and harvested the 79" beauty on day 2 of the hunt.
Dirty Harry St. Peter, 82 years young and his running buddy and personal valet, Jim Gariano with Harry's antelope, the first leg of his triple header with us in 2012.
Rob Kopecky took this beautiful, long cuttered buck at the crack of dawn on opening day.
Derek Berry took this 15" buck on the first day of his dual species hunt. Derek then terrorized a giant mule deer for three straight days but just barely failed to connect. Maybe next year Derek!!
Ralph Hernandez hunted antelope a grand total of 1 hour and took this 77" buck that came into the decoy looking for a fight. Nothing to it, eh Ralph?!
Saskatchewan native Jared Martin killed this massive buck, our most picturesque of the year, sporting 6 1/2" cutters and grossing 80".
Injuries incurred while protecting our freedom in Afghanistan were not going to deter Corporal Matt Roberts from taking his first ever antelope with the Silver Sage crew on our 2012 APOS Hunting Heroes hunt.
Congratulations Matt and thank you for your service to our country
After threatening us for years, Fred Valeri finally joined us for an antelope hunt and took this excellent buck on the first day.
Carlos Dionisio joined us once again and took this wide specimen on day two of his hunt.
Ryder Knowlton took this massive antelope that while only 13 1/2" long, still grossed over 77"!!
Thane Dokuchie with his picture perfect 78" heart shaped buck.
Rob Holladay with his beautiful 190" 7x7.
With one hour left in his 6 day hunt, Jose Smith took this long tined, 170" 4x4 in his bed at 23 yards.
Jim Gariano has killed some big mule deer over the years but this one ranks right at the top. A clean typical 4x4, with a 30" outside spread, grossing 194" and netting 191".
Harold St. Peter of Grand Coulee Washington with his beautiful 170" mule deer.
Longtime client Chris Tillotson returned in 2012 and harvested this heavy antlered brute
Guide Justin Eckert had a week to hunt for himself and took this one in a million mule deer buck. The deer had probably survived a serious fever during the velvet stage of his antler developement that caused his antlers to "wilt", taking on the melted candle wax appearance.

Jon Wilson took one of our best bucks of the season, a 198" specimen that was caught chasing a doe in the stubble at midday.
