You will see some deer and lots of elk up there. Here's my Boulder deer that I shot this year during the muzzy hunt... Good luck! Keep us posted on how you do.

Thanks a ton Wasatch and beautiful buck! I'd be tickled to harvest a buck of that caliber but with zero scouting I understand that is a long shot. I can't thank you all enough for the ideas and info. I was fully ready to be lit up for this being my first post but the kindness is much appreciated.

Water is key on the south side of highway 12. Troughs and water systems will hold deer. There isn't a lot of other water out there. Just know that every trough and pond you find will have [multiple] cameras on it, and other hunters will be hunting them too. That's not suggesting to not hunt them.

Will you have ATV's? Or just a 4x4?

I'll see if I can send you a PM with a few options you could look at.


heck -- Jesse: just reply "bump" 6 times to this thread and get your count above the limit so you we can PM back and forth. I'd like to get you a couple maps.

To answer your Questions PBH, We decided against taking an ATV but I do plan on taking my Electric Bike that I would plan to utilize on any areas that are legal for ATV's. I use a ton here in Oregon for Spring Bear and have utmost confidence in it.

I'm not sure on the regulation for a electric bike but for a ATV you need a Utah ATV sticker. You may want to check into it to see if you need one for the E-bike

So far the state tax commission has overlooked the revenue stream that would be provided by taxing or requiring registration of E bikes. I'm sure it is on some legislators agenda for the future.
