    UT LE Late bull hunt change

    One thing often discounted in these many debates about all the ways to increase game populations is the assumption that management wants to increase game populations.

    Calling Elk

    Calling is one strategy or tool of many. And so is still-hunting, spot-and-stalk, etc. Each tool has it’s time and place. I don’t hunt without ALL the tools at my disposal, and choose the right one for the job. Learn to call. It’s one tool and maybe the most fun.

    How big…still alive?

    Can’t say where exactly…my daughter might draw the tag next year, but my brother and his son videotaped this bull while late rifle hunting in AZ this year. Surprised it seemingly wasn’t broken at all. They and another group went after it but just couldn’t close the deal. Any ideas on score? Does...

    What are you guys seeing for deer #'s where you hunted?

    DB, congrats to your daughter. Looks happy. That said, I used to hunt the Manti back when it was good over 25 years ago. Changed a little, hasn’t it?

    Video: Kill shot on my UT gen. buck

    Haha! Yeah, I’m famous amongst my friends and family for pulling the trigger on anything small so I don’t get tag soup. But here i hiked into a difficult and remote location (public land) searching for better buck(s) and was aiming for something just a bit bigger that area can provide.

    Video: Kill shot on my UT gen. buck

    Found this buck and was just gonna take a pic of it for my buddy back at camp. But after getting the video going I decided that I should tag out. He tumbled and flew into a deep and tight ravine.

    General archery bull, UT

    Was able to call in this young and lonely bull to my son for his 1st archery bull. Came into the calls on a dead run and he whacked it at 20 yards as it stopped broadside. But absolutely zero blood found. Didn’t see it on the other side of the meadow as we looked for blood where we thought it...

    Totally understand. I’m not there quite yet. But my aches and pains remind me the clock is ticking. My pack goats bought me a little time.

    Anybody out there with experience using Pack goats?

    Btw…for your young goats, I’d recommend a couple of Warnke’s training saddles. Even though the goats graduate to the full size eventually, I still use the training saddles while on day hunts cuz they are easy to get in/out food, water, and layers.

    Anybody out there with experience using Pack goats?

    I asked my buddy that question and his response as follows: “I have three. They work fine. But I bought a Britchen (from those expensive aluminum saddles he sells) and added them instead of the leather strap. Works way better now. I would also suggest getting his stay put pads for them too.”

    Anybody out there with experience using Pack goats?

    I have been packing with my goats for about 4 years. Love it! I have Mark Warnke’s Signature Series saddles and panniers. It is a big investment, but they are holding up very well after many trips and several deer and elk pack outs. I expect to use them for the next 30 years and thru 2-3...

    Elk hunting with a bear tag in Colorado

    Last time we elk hunted in CO, we sat down for 20-30 minutes to take a rest. Stood up to stretch and a bear walked up on us at 20 feet. No tag, so had to shoo it away. Scared it pretty good. That unit was OTC for bear. Similar thing happened in AZ this past November late elk hunt. Nice big bear...

    Yup. My buddy was gonna use his bayonet, but those “flamers” on other social media say you gotta kill it with your bare hands or you’re not a real man.

    If that upsets you, this one that I posted in “Youth Outdoors” will probably make your head explode... Graphic warning: death of an animal is shown from “shooting”. Not for you squeamish folks.

    Video: 650 yard kill shot

    No doubt we broke all kinds of MM’er rules shooting that dink at that range, on opening morning. My biggest regret is that we weren’t wearing flatties. And we should’ve backed up.

    Video: 650 yard kill shot

    Bess, a little more about that bison. The 1st shot was good, thru both lungs with .338 Win Mag. But I still laid in the snow for over 10 minutes watching it and waiting for another clean shot. I have no doubt any other animal would’ve fallen over. That 2nd shot was perfect, center punched the...

    Video: 650 yard kill shot

    I callled this “Long Range” at 650 yards. But since it’s a 300 Win Mag and not a ML, not sure if it qualifies nowadays. Regardless, it was a fun lesson for us on the effects of the cold shells on muzzle velocity and the need for a spotter at that distance...
