I believe he is still in the "penalty box" in Utah because he drew less than 5 years ago. OTC and limited entry do not affect each other in Utah. I would also like to see an episode of him hunting OTC in Utah but its pretty easy for him to pull better tags elsewhere. Since moving from Utah I miss hunting OTC there, but other opportunities are SO much better that I can't justify it.Hes hunted plenty of OTC tags in other states that have low success rates and been successful. You could always watch those hunts and apply them to your situation rather than waiting for him to do a similar hunt in Utah. I don't know how Utah points and draws work, but I'm guessing if he's building points there you may not see him hunt OTC elk anytime soon.
Not sure Randy needs B-roll footage that bad.Because you can. Because it's public land. Because it's a shorter drive from bozeman to Utah, than it is to Arizona. Because we have dairy queen.
But having said that. We only have elk on San Juan, Boulder, and Monroe. Rest of the state is void of elk, on second thought I agree, you shouldn't hunt OTC in Utah.
Pretty hard to film 10-12 episodes eg hunts, if you have to sink all your time into making a crappy one work.That's exactly why I want him to hunt here because the otc hunts are not that great but with enough research a quality hunt can be had, different tactics are needed and that is the reality that all new hunters have. Most of us cant afford to hunt out of state or it's not worth investing the money into because we are still learning how to hunt. His show and pod cast are one of the best references to learn how to hunt if you dont have a mentor.
