    San Juan Elk Ridge

    I was lucky enough to draw the Limited Entry San Juan Elk Ridge Deer tag (any weapon) in this years Sportsmans Expo draws. However, I have never hunted this area. Any tips on where to start my scouting?

    Northern Utah for the past couple of years. Was in ID before that, so I haven't had much opportunity to explore much of the southern part of the state...

    I have hunted ML deer in UT a few times but not that area ( I never won a tag lol). I hear good things about the area. I would get down there and scout all I could if I was you!

    Oh... I plan on it! Not sure the wife is too happy about it, but how often does a tag like this fall into your lap!

    Dont worry about it. Wives come and go but that big buck (or not so big buck) mounted on your wall will be with you forever and Im sure finding another wife would be easier then getting this tag again. LOL

    Luckydraw, my wife had the non-resident muzzleloader deer tag there in 2012. Send me a PM, we can set up a phone call and I'll tell you everything I know.
