My brother-in-law and I camped on the Miracle Mile and hunted last Thurs afternoon thru Sat. morning. Lots of 11-12" bucks running around. Both of our bucks ended up being right about 14" with only one other buck seen that was taller...maybe 15". Had a blast though. It's nice to have a laid back hunt every now and then, since the elk and deer can kick your butt over the course of a week.
The fishing was excellent on the river as well as we fished Sat. afternoon and Sun. morning before heading back to Salt Lake. Derrick landed a 24" brown and I landed a 19.5" rainbow on my 3-weight fly rod. I lost 4 others that were just as big or bigger- two of them I couldn't even stop their initial runs before my hook finally pulled out. Can't beat a combo trip, and I'll definitely look into this area again next year. Just hope there is some more moisture for horn growth. There was water scattered about in creeks and springs, but the majority of the unit looked pretty bone dry.

Looks like a great trip to me. Congrats!
