The LE proposals are....interesting.

I'm interested to hear people that know more about the Boulder how the September archery and October/November HAMS hunts, taking rifle out of it completely, will impact opportunity. I wonder if this is the nod to SFW on their complaint that the average Joe state draw hunter was killing too many of their big bulls?

I can't find a link to the Boulder unit boundary changes. Does someone have one?

I don't know, but it seems like this proposal should increase opportunity but maybe limit the success rates....

I don't know for sure, but I think this might affect only the south side of highway 12 -- basically, the Canaan mountain. I haven't seen any of the comments, or RAC proposal, but my understanding is that we have a handful of elk that end up over there that rarely get hunted. By making a new HAMS hunt, and cutting that into a sub-unit, you just might be able to give out more opportunity for people willing to hunt an area that may not have the highest quality and numbers. This will be interesting to see if this is the case. If it is, wouldn't it be just opposite of what SFW wanted with the Barney Top?

interesting. Just looked at the packet. Looks like they included the Barney Top. That's too bad. That will cause contention with the rest of the Boulder unit. Had they just gone with the area south of highway 12 (using the 50 mile or Smokey Mtn road as the eastern boundary), I think this could have been good. Maybe it still could?

Leave it to Utah to mess up what they have--I strongly disagree with the unlimited any bull elk permits. It's already crowded enough and now they want to open the flood gates. I am glad they are bringing in other areas with this proposal but those areas are going to be shot out after a season and we will be back to square one, just like the last time they expanded the any bull units. After that we go back to everyone piling into the uintas at an unlimited rate. This is crazy pants to me. The DWR needs to come to grips that we have a booming human population, limited habitat, limited animals, and ever increasing weapon lethality. I guess I can make an appearance at the central rac--doubt it will help but it's more worth while than complaining on the internet...maybe
