General Elk Hunting / Re: Utah is hitting CCs

General deer tag for me. Manti tag will be awesome for you. Good Luck!

Great stuff Corey and Elk101! Only problem now is I have way too long to wait for elk season.

335 5/8

I would say somewhere in between. I have a mix of clothing and not the top dollar stuff for sure. I have some Core4Element I just bought so I will at least match this year. I do have high dollar Kennetrek boots and will never go back to cheap on boots again. I shoot a high dollar Hoyt carbon element but I won that. I have a middle of the road set of binoculars and spotting scope. The way I see it is if I keep cost down of my gear as much as possible and still keep comfortable I can spend the money on tags and more hunts.

I have put in for Utah archery Central Mountains Manti but just starting over so I doubt I will draw it. I will get an archery deer and archery elk general season tag for Utah. I have put in for Region G in Wyoming for mule deer and will draw it along with the unit I put in for antelope so it will be a busy year for sure. Headed to Montana for archery antelope as well.

I am sure the experience is outstanding and maybe one day I will have to take you up on a guided pack trip.

As everyone has mentioned, Idaho is hard to beat with the over the counter tags. I have had several great trips to Idaho.
If you want to spend some cash and have a great chance at a 350 class bull or bigger then Utah is where you want to go. Some of the best elk hunting anywhere but it takes too long to draw so you would have to purchase a conservation tag and that can get expensive.

Lots of great options depending on how much money you want to spend. Hard to buy general deer and elk unit tags and have much success unless willing to get off the roads about 3-5 miles. If you do this there are some good options.

Sounds like another great back up plan along with my Idaho archery hunts in case I fail to draw my elk tags each year. Thanks for the info.

Ran on the treadmill and lifted during the Michigan game now sitting on my butt watching some serious NCAA tourney action. I will go for round two later tonight by jumping back on the treadmill for some steep up hill hiking.

Just got done with a 2 mile hike with a 40# pack in 4 fresh inches of snow then follow up with the dumbbells for 20 minutes. 14lbs down 25 more to go

Keep that up Rich and those elk in Colorado will not stand a chance!

I am always interested in a back country bull elk hunt. The issues usually come down to funds each year and the other hunts I am going on already. Securing tags can be the issue as well. Do you get outfitter tags alloted to you each year so they are gauranteed? Let me know some info on your hunts. I also would like to bow hunt if possible but not opposed to a good rifle hunt.

Shoot shoot shoot! I have a target in my garage and can go out into the street and get a 30 yard shot. I shoot 3 plus times a week at a local range in the past. Need to get rolling still this year. Also I find it hard to beat going to at least one or two 3d ranges each year.

For the past ten years I used llamas to get into wilderness areas. It was a great way to go. Llamas are easy to take care of and need only to be watered every other day or two and never had to take feed with me. They eat what is there.
Having said that, the time and effort it does take to keep llamas ready to go each year along with hauling hay it depends on the time you have outside of hunting season. I have sold my llamas and will put it on my back or rent horses or mules on my future hunts.
I am not sure about being dropped by aircraft in wilderness areas. This sounds great. What areas do they do this? I know there are landing strips in the Bookcliffs area in Utah. Not sure who has access to those and how you would go about finding out.

I have used Easton Axis for years. Tried some FMJ's and did not see any advantages over the axis so I am currently using Easton Axis. Great arrows.
