    Book Cliffs Bison-Bull Down!!

    My niece’s boyfriend (Mason) received a call from the DWR a week before the August 21st opener informing him that someone had turned in their Book Cliffs archery bison tag and he was next on the alternate list to receive the tag if he wanted it. Being brand new to hunting, he quickly reached...

    2020 Utah Archery Buck Down!

    My 77 year old Father-in-law drew a book cliffs archery deer tag in 2019, but hurt his back days before the hunt and had to surrender the tag. He was able to draw again this year and took his first ever velvet mule deer with his bow on opening morning. It was a blast for me to be there with him...

    What do you think of this bull?

    I have quite a few trail cam pics of this bull-he has one of the largest bodies (huge gut and butt) that I have ever seen on an elk and I think it may skew the size of his antlers. What do you all think? Just for fun, what do you think he scores? He has a 2-3” cheater off of his left side G4 so...

    Utah Tooth Data

    I received my LE elk tag a few weeks ago, but have not received any information or an envelope to turn in a tooth after harvest for aging. Is the Division no longer doing that? When I had an expo elk tag in 2009, I was sent instructions and an envelope to turn in a tooth. Just wondering if...

    2019 Pics-Year in Review

    2019 was a great year for me-Most hunts were spent helping my kids take animals. Time spent with them drove home to me what hunting is all about-creating memories with those you love in God?s creation. Doesn?t get any better than that!! We started out with my 13 year old daughter taking her...

    Box Elder, Newfoundland Archery Hunt

    Anyone here hunt, or know someone that hunted, archery Bighorn sheep on the Box Elder, Newfoundland unit this past season? I would love to hear about the experience. I have quite a few points, but still a bit under what it takes to draw the any weapon tag.

    Draw results question

    Put in for Montana general deer combo for the first time ever this year. I see results should be available the week of April 16th. Is Montana pretty good about getting results out when they say they will (April 16th), and do they notify you via email or do you check results on their website?

    Montana Application Question

    I am planning to apply for a NR Deer Combination license this year for the first time ever in a group of 5 and have a couple questions: 1. Does Montana require you to front the entire cost of the tag or do they charge your card after you are successful in the draw? 2. If applying as a group...

    Beaver Unit - Archery Deer

    We used to bowhunt the Beaver unit for deer many years ago, but I have not been down there in quite some time. I will be running a 1/2 marathon on July 29th in the Tushar Mtn range and wondered if maybe I ought to start looking into the unit again for a future bowhunt. I have a couple of...

    2017 - Year of the Bear

    Having drawn two great tags early on in 2017 that would require a lot of focus and vacation time, my big game application plans for my home state of Utah changed slightly. I opted for my 19th elk point and 17th Rocky Mtn Bighorn Sheep point and did not put in for general deer for the first time...

    Utah Bear Unit Recommendations

    I have 14 Utah bear bonus points and am looking to draw a Multi-Season Limited Entry tag to give me multiple options to take a bear (bow/bait, hounds, etc). Based on draw odds, I think I can draw most units with the exception of San Juan and maybe La Sal. I would prefer to hunt a unit closer...

    2015 Utah Draw Odds?

    So how long do you think it will be until we see the 2015 draw odds for Utah? This seems to come up every year, but I truly and honestly do not get why Utah doesn't have the odds posted within days of the drawing results. What prevents that from happening for Utah? Every other western state...

    2013 WY Elk Hunt Pics/Story

    My Dad and I both had Wyoming elk tags this year and were hoping for success during the archery hunt in late September.
