I turned my tag in due to a death in my family. I lost my hunting partner who also had the tag. But the pics I've seen there have been some brutes taken off the snatch. Check out MM. The Hot Jim thread. I watched that one hit the dirt.

Lots and Lots of Hunters Goofy. More than I have ever seen. What's good though is that I only saw/heard of 1 spike and 2 cows killed. Almost no shooting. Saw lots and lots of elk though. Big bulls, rag horns, cows, but no spikes. Saw lots of spikes on the LE hunt.

From what I have seen there has been a dramatic drop or change in numbers of elk both cows and bulls since '07 when I had a LE tag up there. Places I used to see literally hundreds of cows I now see a few dozen in a year. I have moved areas in search of elk. I have found more but not what I had hoped for. Im hoping the private ground will save a bunch of cows from the control slaughter. Im sure there are areas full of elk, but where I have hunted numbers are dropping.
On a side not, some serious toads have come of the wasatch this year. I think that next years hunt will be very different after the late hunt. The lasttime we had a late hunt on the wasatch there was such a slaughter that they closed it. O how short our memories are.

We hunt a CMWU in the Wasatch Unit. Last year when we asked how the heard was doing, the operator told us there were lots of bulls on the property but not very may cows. I imagine with all of the cow tags this will only get worse. I am no biologist, but I am pretty sure we need cows for a strong herd.

I haven't even seen a cow on the wasatch for two years. I used to see hundreds! Its a shame they are pounding it like they are.

The bulls will definatly take a pounding afrer the late hunt.
