Default Salt Lake Wasatch Mtn Cow Elk

First time posting on here so I'm not sure if this is the right place, but I wanted to see if anyone else had any luck hunting the Salt Lake Wasatch Mtn unit for cow elk? The hunt just ended and I was obviously unsuccessful, but it wasn't from lack of trying lol. I couldn't find a cow elk to save my life. Bulls no problem, but no matter where I went(lambs canyon,millcreek, etc.) or how much time I put in I never saw anything. Not looking for anyone to give away their spots just want to know if anyone else had a similar experience.

Not enough snow this year. Tough to find cows.

Did you look on Lone Peak above Draper? Not saying they were there either, but...

It was a tough year with the limited snow fall. No snow, and the majority of the elk stay high...usually higher than hunters want/can access at that time of the year.

It seems people striking out on cow tags due to lack of snow( me included, Chalk Creek) is a fairly consistent story across the State.
Will the DWR issue additional tags this year to make up for less cows killed last year?

Tough year with the lack of snow... But I hope the DWR doesn't add more tags to the pot to make up for a tough year. I don't think they will.

They’ve been known to do it in the past! They dumped a pile of tags into a unit the year after a dry year. Turned out to be an incredible snow year that season, and they hammered the cows. Everyone shot elk, since they basically wintered on the highway. Took many years to recover from not only that hit, but the winter kill factor as well.

Had a private land tag for wasatch west. The bulls were down, but the cows stayed way high and elusive, pretty much a broken record this year from everyone ive talked to. Sucks, late season cow is my favorite hunt, but still fun to see all the bulls
