Reviewer Comments: Where to begin?...my whitetail hunt was sold to me as a "cancellation" hunt. Turned out to be simply an unsold hunt because the operation is primarily geared toward mule deer, in mainly mule deer country (one of the other guides told me that the outfitter was considering changing the whitetail hunts to simple "throw-ins" on the high-priced mulie hunts). My "guide" had just been plucked from the oil fields (once I had bought the hunt) and had a grand total of one week of experience...and it showed. He didn't know, or care, about game and hunting regs (basic things like legal shooting hours and rifle magazine capacity), and tried to talk me into having a loaded gun while driving in the truck. He even fell asleep in the blind/stand during every single sitting. Blind/stand locations did not appear to be scouted in any meaningful way and were simply located based on good visibility. Admittedly, the weather was very mild and the bucks weren't moving much, so my guide decided we should resort to the favorite local "hunting" technique and spend the bulk of each day driving around IN THE FIELDS, trying to use the truck to flush deer out of the bits of brush in the middle of the fields, for me to presumably (it never worked) jump out and blast away at a fleeing deer hell bent for next week. But the worst offense of all was when my guide and another guide used two trucks to chase a buck, at very high speed, across a field, so close on its heels that one of the trucks almost ran the buck over. In the end, a friend of the other guide shot the buck out of the front seat of a third truck (another preferred local "hunting" technique, and one that my guide proudly professed his experience at doing).

Utah Hunting Information

Utah has recently been outstanding for trophy elk, but the best tags take many years to draw. Utah does have conservation tags available for purchase that allow hunters to bypass the drawing. Given the high demand for these premium tags prices can be high. In the past Utah has been a top trophy mule deer state but recently only a handful of units consistently produce B&C caliber deer.
