Utah elk hunt

We our group just got together and decided that this years out of state hunt will be for elk in Utah, North of Vernel. Any tips or trick from around that area. We will be hunting all public land.

    I assume you will get a general bull permit or else are hunting on private land.
    One thing to look at is the antlerless draw for tags. Nonresidents have a good chance to get a tag in a lot of units.

    I've heard that it's good there. We ususally hunt on the North Slope but it's getting packed with hunters. One piece of advice - scout if possible!

    I am pretty sure we are hunting the south slope, my Uncle shot a nice one up there a few years ago. We will only have two days to set up camp and scout. I have been up there twice, but have never seen a bull alive. Seen a few cows. We are hunting near Ice Cave Peak (i think that is what it is called) The other guys in my group went a couple years with out me due to me having a new job and going through a divorce two years in a row. They had luck there, they keep telling me that we are just not hitting the season right is why i am not seeing anything. I am a flat lander from Oklahoma so i'm not real familiar with the spot and stalk tactics used in the mountains. Just what i have read on the internet. My Uncle who spearheads the trips stays in touch with biologist in the area, so maybe we will hit them right this time.

    The biggest problem most flat landers have is not getting in good physical shape and dealing with breathing at high altitude the first three days.

    I have been at high altitude a few times before and know what you are talking about. Not fun to gasp for air when there is none. It has never been a problem before, you get winded a little quicker. I always hit the stair climber hard about 3 months before we leave and that helps with the endurance. We have done quite a bit of mule deer hunting in wyoming around Rawlings/Encampment area. So the elevation should not be too much of a problem.
