    Then the question becomes "what in your opinion is a great bull?" Many of the mid to top tier units in UT can produce a 350 or above bull...some just produce more of them. If you would be satisfied...

    Absolutely not! If he needs some success, then the antelope doe tags are the way to go. Further, if people aren't giving any good info on deer here (or elsewhere), I'd bag the doe deer tags. Just...

    Fun hunt is probably an understatement considering you drew one of the best LE hunts in WY for elk. Lottery odds are probably better than the odds you just bucked to draw the tag!

    WY only. Hunted units 96, 63, and 48. Best buck has been mid-70s. I haven't been able to spend a ton of time finding "the one", but the next time I go out, I'm going to block out 5 or 6 days and...

    You hike 3.5 miles in the snow towards your hunting spot only to realize during a quick break (and check of your license) that your hunt ended the day before. Man...that was a long, frustrating hike...

    Absolutely! Make sure you put in a call and talk to the warden for your unit too. The more people you can talk to, the better. They probably won't give you an "X" on where to hunt, but can and do...

    I should get a chance to check out both at the Western Hunting and Conservation Expo in Salt Lake in a couple weeks. I'm looking forward to it. From all that I've read on both, I lean towards the...

    This is a sterling example of why I stopped putting in for these tags. Who knows, by the time someone draws a tag after 30 years of putting in, the tag might be 5-10k. And that's not including the...

    Very well. Ended up shooting a 320ish 6 point on day 6. Check out page 7 of the "Elk Success" thread for the story.

    I don't know that I'd put 48 as a blue chip unit, but it's a solid green. There are large tracts of public land in 48 but there is a lot of private / checkerboard too. A chip helps out immensely in...

    If I personally hunt elk, it will be on a general, any bull tag and perhaps an antlerless tag here in UT. I am hoping that my mom draws out on a Manti muzzleloader tag like I had last year. If she...

    Archery is the way to go if you want to LE elk hunt as a non-resident in the next 10 years. If you didn't start building points 10 years ago, the muzzleloader, and rifle especially, are a very hard...

    Sept. 16-25 hands down! If you never thought you'd go elk hunting, you need to go when they are bugling and tearing the woods up. It will keep you wanting to come back for more! It is surreal to...

    Last year, there was a lot of chatter about 82 and 83 being somewhat overrated. Still possible to get a decent animal, but you'll need to work for them. I agree with Go Deep though...just find a...

    It's a toss up to me between antelope and elk. Just depends, but goats are some of the best eating out there (with the qualifier "if taken care of properly")!!!

    I checked into Area 2 a couple years ago, and from what I gathered from the warden, there are access issues to get to the better areas - it was possible, but you'd need a GPS chip and some legs to...
