Re: first elk hunt in utah
I had an amazing time! Yes, the area is very tough, but I would do it again! I never got to fill my bull tag, nor did I see any. my friend shot a mature bull opening day, right at sunset. trailed that thing 3/4 of the next day, never able to find him. I only saw 3 bulls taken, 1 spike, 1 raggedy 5x5 and a very respectable 5x5. both 5x5s were taken off of the same mountain and were running together, 2 guys hunting together took them at the same time. no one in my camp shot any bulls, 1 cow but that was it. The snow sure was rough, fell a couple times on ice and broke in my new custom rifle and huskemaw scope, they held zero though. lol I look forward to going back and hunting again. May try another area though, or put in for the special draws and just do my share of waiting.
