Well, last year I really enjoyed doing the hunt adventure challenge so I figured I would give it another go this year. Still quite a bit of time before I have all of my hunts planned out but so far on the list I have Utah archery deer, Utah archery elk, and Utah buffalo. My Step Dad also got lucky and pulled a Utah LE rifle elk tag, so that should be a lot of fun. Also I’m planning on doing spring bear here in Utah, don’t expect to see much but it’ll be good to get out and hike around.

I just got a new rifle scope put on the 6.5 prc and have been doing some load development. Hopefully I’ll have a load ready to go in the next couple of weeks in time for the start of the bear hunt.

Well I just hit a bump in the road for spring season. Was playing a pickup basketball game earlier this week and ended up fracturing my left foot. I’ll be in a boot for the next 4-8 weeks and possibly longer. So much for Utah bear hunting, I just hope I’m good to go for summer scouting and the fall hunts

I am finally out of the walking boot! On Tuesday my doctor cleared me and said I could start walking again. So, I took a quick trip up to Mirror Lake and did a little fishing and hiking, the weather was great!

Didn’t catch any big ones but did catch a few.

Also decided to hike up Bald Mountain, I’d never done it before but the view was well worth it.

Also saw a couple of Mtn. Goats, their footwork always amazes me.

Now that I’m all healed up it’s time to start scouting. Today I picked up my General Elk tag and OTC buffalo tag, super excited for both of those hunts this year.

Was able to go to the BWB pig shoot yesterday up parleys canyon. It’s been quite a few years since I was last up there shooting but I had a great time, and didn’t even lose any arrows.

Then this morning I got up early and hiked into a new area I’ve never been to before looking for bucks. The hike look longer than expected, I saw about a dozen does, one small four point, and a small herd of elk. Hoping I can make in back in there for an overnighted to check it out a little better. It sure felt good to be back in the high country.
