    Elk load for kids

    My 14 yr old daughter will be shooting my wife's LE bull here in UT via the mentoring program. I am trying to decide which gun/load to have her use. 6.5x284 using a 130gr accubond, or 6.5x280ai using a 140gr Berger. Both loads are very accurate. The best I have found with each gun.

    Southwest did I not draw????

    LAST EDITED ON May-29-17 AT 07:16PM (MST)[p]I don't think UT averages preference points in the general season draw. They do average bonus points for the Limited entry draw. You would have went in the draw with the lowest individual point total.

    Unit 7 Elk

    MI Hunter, Personally I would not burn max points on Unit 7 again. The public land access is just too limited for my liking. I think you could have a good hunt if you can gain access to some private land.

    Unit 7 Elk

    The trip started out great. We watched my son's football team win the UT 2A State football championship. GO BEAVER. The 1st morning there we saw 9 bulls, all small 4 and 5 points. Didn't see anything the rest of the day. 2nd morning hiked up into a new spot. We saw a herd of 30 with just...

    Unit 7 Elk

    I am glad you guys talked me into going ack to WY to hunt elk. The weather sucked. Does the wind ever stop blowing? It was all worth it when I was able to spot this bull. He is not a giant by any means, but the best we saw.

    what is the best bullet for big bull elk?

    RE: what is the best bullet for big bull elk? Unless you are hunting CO, ID, or any state that prohibits sabots. Go to any decent sporting good store and buy some Barnes TMZ, or TEZ bullets. In 250gr and 290gr. I have killed bulls with both. Whichever one is more accurate in your gun shoot...

    Why are we using .50s?

    I have used a Knight Super DISC .45 for the last 15 years. I have also wondered why .45 have not taken off. The biggest downfall to shooting a 45 is bullet selection. I shoot Precision Rifles Deadcenters. They are extremely accurate. I see Parker is making a 45 caliber conical now. It...

    Youth rifle choices

    Watch LIVE the Wildlife Board meeting

    Huntin50, I agree. We have had about 4 inches of rain in Minersville (Southwest Desert) in the last 3 weeks. More scheduled off and on for the next 5 days. If the division is going to try and cut the elk herd in half, I hope the cattlemen follow suit and only run half of their cattle on the...

    Watch LIVE the Wildlife Board meeting

    I think it is about time we as sportsman ban together and buy up the grazing rights on our good elk units. The BLM should put AUMs up for auction. Some are worth a lot more than the cattlemen are paying.

    Combine all deer units

    Sorry, I don't see the issue with "point creep" every state deals with it. Yes even CO has point creep. I started applying for 61 archery elk when 6 points would guarantee you a tag. I now have 18 and still can't draw a tag. So if you want to make one drawing for deer, lets do the same for...
