    Finally got hit for a LE Elk tag in Utah

    Appreciate it man. And vice versa if I catch in nice bucks on trail cams.

    Finally got hit for a LE Elk tag in Utah

    I have not. I do have a friend and his family members that were all successful harvesting 3 great bulls on the rifle hunt last year, and am going to use his info as a starting point going into the scouting season. I would be more than receptive to any points in the right direction, and would be...

    Utah 2020 Draw Results Thread

    Bank account got hit on the 13th with 13 bonus points for the Central Mountains, Manti muzzy hunt. Will be looking for a bull with 13 points (eastern count) I guess.

    Finally got hit for a LE Elk tag in Utah

    I received a CC notification email early this morning that my card was hit for $285.00 for a LE ELk tag. Looks like I will be spending my summer scouting and the end of September chasing wapiti on the Manti with my muzzleloader.

    ID Suspends NR License Sales Indefinitely

    Glad I bought my non-resident hunting/fishing license in January. I know that they are still allowing people to enter the draws, but I wonder how much this will deter other nonresidents from entering the draw process considering it will be opening at the height of this pandemic. I know there...

    Utah Deer Prospects

    This really needed to happen, but it is a year late IMO. 2018/2019 winter was really rough on Cache and Chalk Creek / East Canyon / Morgan-South Rich (at least on the eastern slopes). My experience last fall is similar to Wildabeast, areas that we were rich in bucks in 2018 were all but barren...

    And it begins ......

    Got out and hiked about 4 miles yesterday afternoon. Spotted one bull on the hillside about 300 yards away that had recently dropped, heading up the hill to a bachelor herd of a dozen bulls still carrying. No antlers found, but have stuck a pin on the OnX for a future hike in a week or two.

    Tape at the end of barrel?

    Another great option are the first aid rubber finger covers. They may make your rifle look like it is practicing safe hunting, and that is not completely wrong.

    Central Mountains, Manti UT LE elk hunt

    LOL yeah they had a camera with them. The pics I got from them were rather low resolution. I have attached one of his dad and his bull cropped out as to not show their faces all over the internet (not that the image is sharp enough to see faces). Not if they ran the tape or not, but it is a...

    Central Mountains, Manti UT LE elk hunt

    Just wanted to throw out a quick update on my friends hunt. All three of them harvested great bulls, with my friend's dad shooting the biggest of the bunch at an estimated 370" bull. Thanks a ton for all the advise and help.

    Central Mountains, Manti UT LE elk hunt

    My friend has to work all weekend, but I believe his brother is going to be out in the area bird dogging. Thanks again

    Central Mountains, Manti UT LE elk hunt

    My long time hunting buddy and his dad drew the Central Mountain, Manti LE elk hunt for this fall and are looking for a little guidance to help his 75 year old(?) dad at least get a shot at a decent bull. My buddy is a very experienced elk hunter, both archery and rifle, but being unfamiliar...

    Utah email results are out

    Another bonus point for elk, which takes me up to 13. My daughter decided to get married this summer, so I guess the $ savings will go to good use. Got a deer tag for both Utah and Idaho, so I will stay busy enough in October.
