    I am in the same boat, I have 17 points going in to the draw this year. I was hoping for a San Juan tag this year too but after looking at the draw odds I just don’t want to wait that long for a tag. I got in for the early rifle beaver hunt. Hopefully I can pull a tag this year or next, after this long I’m ready to go hunt!

    I am going to try and do some scouting down there this summer.

    Hey Rsess. My best bull is a 367 from New Mexico and I would really like to top that in Utah, as Utah will probably be my best opportunity in my lifetime to do that. Did you see any bulls on the Dutton in the 370+ class? There are only 6 non-residents left in the point pool I an in so I am willing to hold out a few more years for the best tag possible.

    I would like to hear more about the Dutton. My wife is also applying in Utah for elk but does not have as many points as I have. The Dutton is one of the units I have considered for her to apply in. She does not want to hunt a unit that is overly physical though, and from what I have heard the Dutton can be a pretty physical hunt. She would be THRILLED with a 310 to 330 class bull.

    last year down on the dutton we saw tons of 350- 360 class bulls! i would say we saw maybe three that were 370+ but i know they're in there. im going down again this year to check out some other canyons i wasnt able to get to last season. Mine i tagged last year was a 7x8 that scored 355 4/8. I heard of two during the archery season that broke the 370s. The dutton can definitely be a rugged hunt if you just go in there without knowing the area really well, and even if you do know it, it will still make you tired but i am 100 % confident you could walk away with a 350 bull! if i can figure out how to pm ya i will send you pics of a lot of the bulls we were getting into down there.

    Rsess: The deadline to apply in New Mexico was March 28 this year. You can apply on line. Elk tags run $388 to $795 depending on the quality of the area.
