    Poll: Would you support banning baiting (except for bear) in Utah?

    Well somebody on the trail cam ban brought up that he was surprised everybody wanted to ban trail cams but not baiting. I am willing to bet that more people would even be willing to ban baiting than trail cams. I am for banning trail cams during certain times of the year and baiting all...

    2021 General Deer.

    I'm going to switch up my general deer unit. Tags in the west are getting harder and harder to get. I want to pick a decent unit and stick with it for a while. I'm looking at Panguitch Lake, Pine Valley, Beaver, or Boulder. Of course the size of deer matters but I won't ask you guys about that...

    Grizzly kills bull elk

    Man they are impressive animals! Not only to have the endurance and speed to catch a bull elk, but then to have the strength to actually kill it, drag it out of the water and eat it. Maybe the elk was either tired or injured from the rut but still.

    What does this one score.

    I've got a buck here that I shot in 2015, and I know what he scores. After seeing some of the guesstimates differ by as much as 40 inches on some deer I posted I'm curious to see how close everyone gets to bucks I actually know what they score. I'm not an official scorer but I'm sure I'm within...

    Where will he finish

    Went on a scouting trip. Saw some decent bucks. He was probably the best. Curious to see what you all think. It will depend on how good his back Forks finish.

    Grizzly eating a dead cow

    Not the best pics because it was getting dark but wanted to share these. There was a dead Angus cow out in a Meadow. I said we would stay till 9:40 and watch it. It was literally 939 and 59 seconds when I held up my binoculars for one last glance. This grizzly shot out of the Willows like a...

    80/20 split, for Nonres/res in every state

    I am a Utah resident. I would be all for 20% of tags to go to NR. It would hurt resident odds a little but drastically increase non-resident odds.

    Idea for Win-win for deer and hunters!

    This is nothing that has not been said before but if we get everybody on the same page with this maybe we could let our voices be heard through surveys, emails RAC meetings and other avenues. I believe the tag numbers right now are 60% rifle 20% Muzzleloader and 20% archery. Let's go 33% on...
