    switchbackkd,

    Just a few suggestions. Powder is probably going to be your primary unknown variable due to scarcity. I'd figure out what powders you're likely to use and begin trying to find them....

    Hilltop,

    Thanks for posting that pic. BTW, I'm sure that the camera's location function was disabled before the photo was taken.

    I hope to be looking over similar bulls in less than one month. ...

    Hi Points Hunter,

    I can't remember. It's been about 20 years since I was on the reservation. From what I remember, the tag cost would choke Donald Trump.

    Elk are HUGE animals. You will need at least another hunter to help you. If you can't work that out, line up horses.

    Hi Umpqua Hunter,

    I am going to take as many photos as possible. Besides a photo of, prayerfully, a huge bull that I've killed, I'd love to get photos of two massive bulls fighting it out.

    Hi Hilltop,

    The unit does produce huge trophies. Last year a 418 bull was taken. As for realistic expectation, I don't know. I do know that there are B&C bulls in there, and from what I've read &...

    I agree 100%. And it might not be a bad idea to call fish and game to see if there was something suspicious with the ad.

    Colorado Cowboy,

    Again, you're right on the money. There is no substitute for range time. And I agree with your great hunting rifles being heavy. I picked up a Pre-'64 Model 70 in .270 Win that I...

    PointsHunter,

    I agree. In a previous post of mine about trophy elk states, I completely forgot about NM.

    Hi horshour,

    My advice is to not pick a single state, which was a huge mistake I made. My advice is to start acquiring bonus points in AZ. NV, & UT. From the looks of things, Wyoming is back in...

    PointsHunter,

    Thanks so much.

    While there are other units in Utah that have trophy bulls, you might want to hold out until you're chances improve.
