"Oquirrh-Stansbury Utah"

Hey all,

I drew a muzzy tag on the Oquirrh-Stansbury unit this year and was wondering if anyone had advice of places to focus vs. places to avoid.

I'm planning to get off the beaten path and do some shelter camping, so hoping I can get into a more productive area.

Any help is most appreciated!

Mike

I was In there last year. a lot of the deer stayed back in the ophir canyon. if you do camp, pack in about 2 miles and set up along the creek. you will have cows as visitors in there but the benches to the south had some good deer in the shoots, and also a couple ridges to north of ophir had a lot of deer as well.

Awesome - thanks for the info!

Did you run into many other hunters there? I would guess a lot of people would stick close to the roads/trails, but not sure.

Also, is the property in (and on the way to) the canyon public access?

Thanks again for your help.

I ran the ONX maps and its all public going in. Little bits of private here and there. not a lot of hunters camp overnight in there so you should be good but I would take the trail and head in about 2 miles til your basically in the deepest of the quakies. tons of deer in there we had bucks in our campsite area nightly.

Fun area to hunt. We hunted the muzzleloader and archery last year. Seen more people on the muzzy then on the archery, but still not as many as you would see on the rifle.
Lots of patches of quakes that the deer will bed in, unless they get pushed, then they will head for the thick north pine slopes.

Thanks for the info!

Did you venture into the pines? Just curious if it would be worth a look if nothing turns up, or if it would be better to wait for them to come out. Sometimes that stuff is so thick, you can hear them everywhere, but never have a chance to put a sight on one.
