Default New to Forum, Utah, and Western Hunting

Originally from Louisiana and grew up a whitetail hunter. Plenty of experience there along with hog and some duck hunting. Also done some turkey hunting with my brother in KY. Doing some Turkey hunting now over in snow basin area. Different game around here. Found out people on public land around here are not as courteous as back home though.

First time elk hunting also will be this year. May do mule deer if I draw but not really interested in it honestly.

Hoping to get some advice and info here. Iíd be willing to help you out even if you donít really reciprocate ie: tag along to help pack meat out etc.

Live in the Clearfield area.

Welcome!

Clearfield is a great place to live for a duck hunter. Feel free to send me a message or post in the waterfowl section if you have questions on that.

Welcome to Utah, and to the forum! You mentioned something interesting. I did a whitetail hunt in Kansas a few years ago. We stopped in a local store for some supplies, and got talking hunting. I couldn't believe how nice and welcoming they were. Was a 180 compared to here. Told us where they'd seen some nice deer in the past day or two, among many other things.

Good luck. Lots of good dudes on here.

Yea if we typically walked up on someone and hadnít busted them or were warned somehow they were around or we were coming up on them, we backed out and found somewhere else as a courtesy. Here, second hunt out, had someone intentionally walk thru my setup and screw up the bird I was working. He saw me. Didnít care.

Quite a few Utah hunters get pretty jealous around here. If they cant have it then no body can kind of thing.

Also from Louisiana. I'm a late onset adult hunter and have only done one elk hunt (with a buddy from LA). Good luck in learning western hunting. I'm still trying to figure it out, but I love it.
