Re: Utah elk hunt

This area is very crowded with hunters, Utah has a buck bull combo and this is the only area in the state for the combo hunt.

If your buddies are seeing what they call "good ones" what is your definition of good ones. There is lots better to be had in this state. All depends on what you are after.

Been to this area. At times it was lousey with hunters. You have to get way up in to get past the crowds. If you are hunting on foot this could be something to consider. In this country horses are the ticket.

If you are after solitude and a western elk hunt you might want to consider somewhere else.

Re: Utah elk hunt

The main problem with this area is all of the indian land nearby. Once all the hunters start pulling in and "scouting", the elk dont all move UP any mountains. The simply move over and down to the indian land that nobody can legally access. The area might be good for the first day, maybe even see some the second day, but it will be very hard hunting from then on out. The elk you see in this area after opening day will simply be moving through, out of other areas, to the indian lands. It is this way with alot of the vernal area. I know that this doesnt help alot but at least it is a heads up. Any other questions i would gladly offer an opinion.

Re: Utah elk hunt

And BTW, if you see anybody in this area looking to hunt for the buck bull combo hunt...turn them in. This area is not part of the buck bull combo hunt area even though alot of people think it it. You will still see lots of other elk hunters in this area though. You will have to go quite a ways north of ice cave peak and a little ways to the west to get to the boundry of the buck bull combo hunt.

Re: Utah elk hunt

Rh300rum,

That comment about the boundry wasn't
a poke at you. You have no idea how many
people I have come across that have tag in
hand and don't know where they should be
hunting. I have come across people that hunt
elk in the south slope and then have gone out
to grouse creek to hunt their deer. They think
thatbecause it's a northern tag they can hunt the
entire northern unit for deer and all the any bull
units for elk. That's the only reason that I
mentioned it.

Re: Utah elk hunt

Thanks for all of the advise it is really appreciated, in the area's i have been to in this part of the country, i have not seen a whole lot of hunters (probably due to the lack of elk lol) Seems like we would run into someone every couple of days. I am sure our group would be up for a change if anyone knows of a better place. My uncle came up with this place due to the availability of tags, cost ($475 i think) and drive time (most of us are coming from NE Oklahoma) which is about the limit for most of us.

Once again thanks for all the comments, anyone else that wants to chime in please feel free to. I will be happy to see an elk, much less get a shot.
