    How was the winter in the Unitas?

    Heard southwestern Wyoming had a tough winter. Planning on elk hunting again this year in the Unitas and was wondering how the winter conditions were on the north slope of the Unitas. Are the game animals normally able to migrate down to the lower elevations without problems?

    Utah and Wyoming Success

    Just returned from a combination Utah elk hunt and Wyoming mule deer hunt. I was fortunate to be successful in both states. I shot the Utah spike bull from our spike camp several miles in. A nightmare pack out through fallen timber. Glad it was a smaller elk. The Wyoming mule deer was taken...

    Seek Outside or Kifaru

    Looking for a light weight shelter for a upcoming backpack hunt. Have been looking at Seek Outside's Silvertip teepee and Little Bug Out 3/4 tarp vs Kifaru's Paratarp. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated on these shelters. The hunt will be the last week of August in Utah so real cold temps...

    Weather in the Uintas, late August

    We will be doing a backpack elk hunt on the north slope of the Uintas the last week of August this year. I'm trying to decide if I'll need my heavy weight sleeping bag rated to 0 degrees or if I can get away with a lighter weight bag rated to about 25 degrees? Hunted the LaSals many years ago...

    Elk, Northern Slope of the Uintas?

    Hunted Utah many times but never in this area for elk. The area is referred to Northern Slope Summit / West Daggett. I will be hunting the early archery season, last week of August.

    Deer herd in the Northern Bighorns

    We keep hearing tales of woe concerning the deer herd out west, but it seems to be in western Wyoming where the worst reports are coming from. Anybody been in the northern Bighorns this summer to observe the deer herd there? How did they fair this past winter and spring? We have archery deer...

    Preference points?

    I am a non-resident and failed to draw a general season mule deer tag. My question is; do I automatically get a preference point for next year's draw for this hunt? Or do I need to buy a preference point?

    LaSal Mountains

    Hunted the LaSal Mountains about ten years ago for mule deer. I see it is still a general season there for archery. Is this an over the counter tag or is it a draw for non-residents? As I recall it was a draw years ago but we never failed to draw this tag, is it still a pretty good percentage to...

    Northern Bighorns winter conditions?

    Have heard the winter in northern Wyoming is a little more severe this year. We are thinking of applying for Unit 25 for deer again this year. Has the winter been pretty bad or is it more or less a normal year for snow and cold?

    Wyoming Success

    Just returned from the Bighorns and a successful mule deer hunt, not however without a lot of hard work. Due to very warm days and crystal clear full moon nights the deer weren't moving much during the daylight hours. Put on lots of miles searching, scouting, hunting different spots. Finally...

    Weather in the Northern Bighorns

    Will be coming west in about one month to hunt mule deer again. Have heard the weather has been fairly wet in spring and early summer. For those of you living in the area is it still a nice wet summer with plenty of green forage available? We have had to alter our hunting in the past due to very...

    Unit 56 or 55 for archery elk?

    Looking at possibly coming to Idaho for the archery elk season. We have been looking at units 56 (1st choice) and 55(2nd choice). Have been told central and southern parts of 56 will be good for elk in Sept. How is the hunting pressure here? It appears to have plenty of good access due to quite...

    Success in Wyoming

    Hi Everyone, Have returned from my annual Wyoming mule deer hunt in the Bighorns. We hunted Sept. 5th thru 11th. I must say the hunting was decidedly tougher this year. Two issues had to be dealt with; the first few days were very hot and deer numbers seemed to be down a little. Those first few...
