and also do you think the dwr gave out an ungodley amount of cow elk tags this year. to make up for the money they lost from having to cut back general deer tags. they have to make the money up somewhere right.

What kind of cow numbers did you actually see being taken off the mountain?

I think the unit can handle a lot of elk being killed. There are more than enough elk on the Wasatch. IMHO

all in all it was twenty elk out of the one canyon. the elk looked tired from being chased around for 4 months straight some even wounded. i agree the unit could probably benefitted from thining the herd a little. but it looks like they may have overdone it on this unit like they have done on other units in the past

No. The DWR issued (approved by the RAC's and passed by the Wildlife Board) so many cow tags on the Wasatch because the elk population is way over objective on the Wasatch unit and either we can issue them to hunters or they will be killed by other means such as ranchers taking things into thier own hands, depredation tags, or emergency means.

It makes me sick...

Out of the last 18 years, I've been on the Wasatch LE elk hunts 15 of those years...

This year was my last for a while, I'm heading to different units now.. Seen enough.

Well considering the elk herd is WAY over objective, and the deer herd is not, I have absolutely no problem with them taking more elk.
