    Being from Riverton, you probably know about the Uintahs. That would be my suggestion. Hunt high, as Utah's archery hunt starts so early the bulls don't even hardly bugle during the archery hunt at lower elevations. Get off the beaten path, put the boots to work and you should be able to find some bulls.

    I don't like to give out specific areas, as you know an area can be found pretty easy by other people. But if you stay around the 10,000ft mark and put your boots to work you can find decent bulls. I go as far as having my wife drop me off for a few days because of people around town that know I am getting into elk try and follow me, or look for my truck. I have even parked my truck at other locations just for a decoy. Good luck to you!

    Ruttin, I'm going to have to figure out exactly who you are, what you drive, and begin stalking you. I want a bull with my bow.

    Yep I get an elk every year in the Unitahs early using a treestand. It's really dry up there this year!

    Hey Maxhunter, great read in EBJ, congrats! I usually see a few of those goats up where I hunt elk.

    I hunt the Uintah's and I got all outfitted to start archery this year. I have a great spot with big animals and I have a couple questions to ask. Do any of you pack in for 3-4 day trips? If you do, what kind of pack do you use? I work at a outdoor retail store and the people over packs are trying to get me to pick a mountaineering pack over a hunting pack. the pluses of the mountaineering pack are the design, fit, and size/weight. The hunting pack (I'm leaning toward the Eberlestock Dragonfly or the Badlands 4500) Eberlestock is waterproof and is quieter. How much will I need the quiet features of the hunting pack. Do you guys find yourself hunting on the pack-in or will I be able to drop the pack once I set up camp and go stealth from there. I'm only doing the elk hunt this year but for deer, which I hope to archery hunt next year, I will have to sneak in on with more precision. I usually kick about 20 deer out of there beds when I hike up to my elk spot so if I want a chance at them I will have to be prepared to go in quiet, at least that is my plan for next year but I don't now much about archery. Looking for any advice.
