    Deer Hunts unit 127 and 126

    Sorry for the other post. But when someone shows up with 1-2 posts and posts something like you did, it is usually a troll. Sounds like anyone wanting to book with this guy needs to give you a call

    New Utah Big Game Rules

    “Increase carrying capacity on our ever shrinking winter ranges. Decrease predator populations into near extinction“. So true! If only we had the balls to carry out those words!

    New Utah Big Game Rules

    In another time I might have agreed to restrict AND license them at the same time. But they’re already nickel and diming us to death with this fee and that fee. We don’t need another

    New Utah Big Game Rules

    Making cams a moneymaker is a sure way that particular technology would never get controlled. And since I am in favor of restricting them, I don’t agree with you.

    Utah Trail Cam Ban

    So in the passed version, is there still a mandate to formulate trail cam restrictions, or was that dropped entirely?

    POLL: Archery Hunting or Nothing???

    I absolutely would not support this and I would kick up a fuss with the game and Fish, but I would bow hunt if that’s my only option

    Official re-issue process

    Yep, NRs are SOL for turning back in an “A” tag and buying an “A” tag reissue. As said: advantage residents. Which is as it should be.

    Official re-issue process

    The funny thing is that the CPWs official recommendation was to keep it was it was last year (random) because it helped spread out things for them and kept things from crashing. But the commission went against their recommendations.

    Unit 74 Early Rifle

    I have not personally done that hunt but know several that have. Have elk hunted the unit during muzzleloading and saw a 185-190 buck. But that was about 10 years ago. So, Is it a quality hunt: yes. Is it a trophy hunt: possibly, but you would have to get lucky. You can draw the same area the...

    MASTERS OF BAITING???

    Actually studies have shown that you can pee in a real buck scrape and they will continue to use it. Human urine doesn’t seem to spook deer 🤪

    Utah Trail Cam Ban

    I feel pretty sure you are the only one here who would bring up sitting on a waterhole as a fair chase issue. What we are discussing here is TECH that makes it easier to harvest an animal. Doing actual scouting, reading tracks and sign at a particular water hole is what real hunting is all...

    Utah Trail Cam Ban

    Pretty big talk from a person with 34 posts on this website. For me its not about numbers or trophies. It boils down to two things. It’s about Fairchase, and a quality “hunt”. If I were to hunt a water hole with 30 cameras pointed at it, that takes away from the quality of that hunt for me...

    Texas Axis Recommendations

    My ranch is very close to Sonora and we got hammered by ice and snow for a week. The pic I sent was supposedly taken near there too. I have not been able to get out there and asses the damage yet. Too wet On a better note, the whitetail seemed to have done pretty well I think they eating snow...

    Should I move on?

    What is the success rate for this unit for the last 5 years. If it is decent, and you seemed to find more about where the deer hang out, you might stay the course. Remember that all seasons are roughly a week later This year.

    Texas Axis Recommendations

    I have heard some reports that axis did not survive the cold well this past week. Need to research that a bit before you make a decision. This picture was supposedly taken during the past week as a result of the prolonged ice and snow. But I don’t know if it is legit or not.

    https://le.utah.gov/~2021/bills/hbillint/HB0295S01_ComparedWith_HB0295.pdf Is this the one that passed? Not only does it say they “shall”, but also says cams WILL be banned on public land with certain exceptions. They leave it pinto the board for the exact regs If that is what passed, it...

    Looks like you joined MM just to post this. Can we expect you to stick around? Lots of time you can take still take pictures/video for YouTube videos even if it passes.

    New to the game.....

    +1 for bowsite.com Archery is generally easier to draw in Colorado, in fact many areas are OTC (no drawing). I personally like muzzleloading season and have hunted that 90% of the time for the last 25 years. Generally starts the second Saturday in September and is also during the rut. All...

    Kill the Trail Cam Bill

    Limitations won’t work. Already thought about that and ruled it out. Why? Not because of guys like you, but because the commercial guys who hire dozens of people will have every employee sign up for the max allowed number of cams. So limiting numbers would do nothing to solve the problem. Both...

    Kill the Trail Cam Bill

    “Anybody who is for the banning of taking pictures should 100% be donating all of their rifles and scopes to me! PM me and I’ll come pick them up“ That sentence implies that NO technology should be banned. If that is not what you are saying, then debate this issue on the merits and start a...

    Kill the Trail Cam Bill

    You prove my point with archery hunting. So what if it has the “lowest success rate” of all methods is take. If you compared archers that use bait to archers that don’t, then you would have data to back up your claim. But there is no such data that would show that there is no advantage to...

    Kill the Trail Cam Bill

    I also think you can go overboard relying on studies and data. To me trail cams and baiting are the smoking gun. Pretty much anyone with a brain knows they make killing easier and with cameras make targeting a specific animal easier. If someone wants to put up data, it needs to be the ones...

    Utah Trail Cam Ban

    You maybe right, but if they do leave them up, I have a feeling they won’t be operating too well when they go to check on them. Although many may just destroy them, it would also be simple to take a little bit of your drinking water, and a little bit of dirt, and make some mud. And that mud...

    Kill the Trail Cam Bill

    You make some valid points but sometimes it is necessary to bypass the camel With his nose in the feed bag. And people seem to be kinda ignoring the “no baiting” part of this bill. Although I have a ranch in Texas and do use feeders and bait, that is an apples and oranges comparison to western...
