Western Hunt 2011- Rifle cow elk

After chasing antelope around Wyoming I returned to Utah to be greeted by a big snowstorm.

After a little of the snow had melted I set my camp up in the same spot I had used during the archery hunt. There were no flowers blooming any more!!!.

On the second day after setting up camp, I shot a calf at 556 yards with the 257 Wby and the 130 gr Wildcat bullets.


With all my hunting out west done I turned the truck east and came on home.

I'll expect an invite for an elk meal.

I may be visiting your area next year around cherry blossom time. Please save some meat.

Re: Western Hunt 2011- Rifle cow elk

In order to build up points in Utah you have to buy a nonresident license which is $100+. So after paying that much you might as well go and hunt. A nonresident archery tag is OTC and the nonresident rifle hunt cow elk is 100% certain to draw. It is close and convenient to the Wyoming antelope hunt.
