Congrats on your Christmas in August!

My cameras on the southern part of the unit have only turned up some small satellite bulls thus far but I'm sure you'll be able to find one that you're after.

Congrats. The same happened to my dad several years ago for a Bear hunt. Good Luck!

Ha, 390....
Honestly , a 350 bull with a bow even on a better unit takes a little luck.
For me, I'd have a hard time holding off on a good shot at 320 bull opening morning.
I know how tuff it can be....

In-fact, crazyest draw year EVER for me.
I was in for 25 draws this year with 25 UN's!
Told everyone my string of luck for MANY years hit the wall....
Since the draws ended, I now have a ML Kamas deer and this Manti elk,
Someone above is smiling on me..

Good luck!
I agree,
Been scouting it all year, Both kids have cow permits..
In-fact, we were fishing Electric lake the last 3 days,
went to the top Eccles canyon Saturday to check phone messages
when I found out I was an alternate for the tag! I was on the unit!..

I just told Amanda at the DWR office it was early Christmas today...

Awesome! I love that unit and it was a strong contender for my application this year. Had I been staying in state and been able to do some serious scouting I probably would have ended up DIY on the early rifle or muzzy hunt there!

390+ was me being facetious. I don't archery hunt, but I know how tough it could be. Heck, 390+ with a rifle on the premium units is dang tough!

That said, you better not shoot something smaller than 390!

haz,
My plan last fall was to get the Fishlake elk permit this year,
5 points was a guaranteed tag there, archery.
Then,
I watched Manti elk all winter too, Switched knowing there was
a chance I might not draw...
Man, I've been kicking myself for two months!
It's all good know though....

TS,
390 sounds good to me.......................
