Yet here you are, skipping the hard part, trying to take the easy road.

There’s 3 weekends before the spike Elk starts. Sounds like you need to get to hiking

If you are the elk master you imply being, sounds like you already know how and where to go to be successful. Which now leaves me wondering why you’re asking strangers where to go online

MooseMeat thanks for the advice! You're 100% right I definitely need to get out and hit the hills. And good question, my best answer is I don't think you can ever have too much advice So I appreciate your tips and I will definitely get out and scout with what time I have.

Hey man, I’ve been a member on this forum for a little bit but have never posted or helped anyone out, so I guess today is a good time to start. First off,I really enjoy all the backlash you’re getting from some of the members. No wonder hunter numbers are historically declining. Second, I know it’s a long drive, but you could hit up the La Sal mountains below Moab. We’ve been down there the last two years and have tagged five elk between three people. One cow, four spikes. I can give you more detailed info if you PM me. If you aren’t willing to drive that far, then no harm done. I’ll help any way I can to get people out and enjoy the woods.

PEAK777 thanks for the support! I just tried to send you a PM, not sure if it sent because I'm new to this forum. Let me know if it got to you

I would love to give you some locations but last year when we were hunting spikes they were few and far in between in the areas that we had been and were looking.

But I do know of a couple of good locations if they are there.

This place is becoming monstermuleys 2.0
You could Try anywhere around strawberry. Seen a good amount between there and hobble creek a few years back. Pick a spot, Hike in as far as possible. Hope to find spikes. You won't be alone.

"Becoming"

First.. Not close.

Second... When has posting and asking for help on your first post NOT been hazed at least a little around here? Posting that you know how to hunt elk and you know you need to get your butt in the mountain, while simultaneously NOT getting your butt in the mountain is going to catch some slack.


Other than Moosemeat, who is the exception not the rule, it's not close to MM.

If you ask me he got some pretty solid advice for a first time poster.

I've seen some forums where if a new member asked that kind of question that they would be ignored until after the season
