    Had a tough time deciding whether to chase spikes/cows or bulls this year with my bow. The decision was whether I wanted the (mostly) sure bet of getting into cows/spikes on the spike unit in my backyard, or take my chances at getting an opportunity at a bull on the any bull unit with a decent...

    I've applied for Manti early rifle season with 20pts so odds are I'll draw this year, after waiting "forever"! I put in for all these years in San Juan, as I lived there and trained horses every day in the hills, so knew what I wanted. But, I've moved into the manti unit and can scout a lot...

    Hey guys, I'm planning an elk trip to Utah for the general rifle season. I have 7-10 days and have been considering the Montezuma Canyon unit because there are good elk numbers and little hunter numbers. I see very few bulls are harvested there. Why is that? I have been reviewing maps and it...

    Hi guys, I would like some feedback on my product. I have found that carrying a rifle with a sling gets heavy during long hikes, strapping it away in your backback makes it hard to access your gun, and the backpack frame sometimes restricts you from carrying it comfortably. My product pretty...
