"Nebo elk "

Looks like I've drawn a nebo muzzy elk tag! Super excited. Most of my elk hunts have been in CO archery OTC. So I'm thinking this should be a much better hunt. I understand the unit is very steep and rugged. And most of the elk reside in the northern half of the unit. It seems the elk herd there is on the rebound according to herd size now and age structure is improving. I would appreciate anyone's knowledge or past experiences with the unit and maybe some places to start keying in on? I know the unit isn't a top tier unit for UT so I understand to have realistic expectations. I don't mind packing in on foot a few miles into the wilderness or any other remote place if it is much better hunting. I've done this in CO and enjoy getting away from the crowds. I've looked at GE and have some ideas as well. Thanks in advance guys!

I have a deer tag for there. Email me your cell phone so I can let you know what I see as far as wapiti go......

I'm holding out for Manti elk but if I see good stuff scouting I might jump ship next year.

I've been on 3 archery hunts on the Nebo it holds some big bulls and it can be a tough hunt there is some nasty thick country there. If you're having trouble finding some as it gets closer to the hunt I'll send you down a few holes to check for some elk. Muzzleloader season should be pretty fun on that mtn. My buddy hit a bull when he had an archery tag and we looked for the bull during the rifle hunt and we watched a Nice 6 point below us rutting cows a couple minutes later we heard a gun shot and some guy got him. I'm sure you'll see some bears while you're down there as well.

LAST EDITED ON May-26-17 AT 01:11 PM (MST)

Nephi canyon is my backyard, I agree with everyone says that it holds some big bulls, I'm up there quite a big, not as much as I'd like but that's life, got kids ya know.

But i'll serious aside I know most everyone I talk hunts the north end of unit over by Spanish Fork canyon, but don't over look the Nebo loop road, I've seen aton of elk along that road on tons up by hop creek, if you want I can possibly take you to a spot I found that its just crazy elk country, counted over 50 head in one spot during the archery deer hunt last year, and there were some damn good bulls that herd.

Hunt where you want but agree with what everyone said and bring your hiking boots!

Good luck kill a dandy!

I noticed in the third picture the bone is exposed on the nose did a bear or coyote start feeding on the cape. Awesome bull that unit can be a tough one.

No I cut the lower jaw off etc before packing him to cut as much weight as possible. We saw a fresh bear track in the snow that first morning but we hung all the meat and nothing messed with it luckily!
