"Kamas, Oakley Antlerless"

Ok MonsterMuley friends I wasn't planning on doing this but I've gotten a bit worried from some information that I have received from other acquaintances (not on here). I was told how I picked the total wrong unit for trying to get a cow tag filled and all the private property I will have to deal with. I am hoping that I haven't made a mistake with this because I will be taking along a first time hunter with me that also has a tag. I'll admit its been a few years since I have hunted up around this unit but I figured I had some pretty good ideas and areas in mid to hit. I have areas I planned on looking into on the north end around Smith and Morehouse and on the south end heading up Upper spring road and working my way west. I have planned on getting off the road and hoofing it around as that's how I have always done it and to give my hunting partner the full experience I can.

I want to be clear....im not looking for anyone's hot spot or honey hole. I understand how that is. I'm just looking to see what others may have experienced and if someone can offer up some advice or there suggestions it would be greatly appreciated by the both of us.

I realize that this hunt is couple days away and this may seem last minute well I guess it kind of is but the season is long and hopefully there is plenty of time to get the job done.

I wish you all well this weekend for rifle opener, shoot strait and god bless!

thanks,

I've had the same tag the last 6 years in a row and have been 100% successful. Unfortunately, I didn't draw this year, which probably had a lot to with the control permits going away on the Wasatch. I guess I can't complain...

The best advice I can give you is wait for the first big snow storm that puts down 7+ inches up high and glass until you find some. Of the 6 cows I've harvested, all were taken after November 10th. The elk are very scattered on this unit and roads are pretty scarce. Add in the private property and any bull hunt this weekend, I would personally stay home. Also, for what it's worth, I've never seen an elk around upper setting in the late season and very few around Smith & Morehosue.

Thanks for your input fellas! It is very much appreciated for sure! Sounds like I need to adjust my plan of action a little bit.
I failed to mention in my first post that if anyone feels more comfortable by sending a PM that's understandable and welcomed as well.
