If you head up 400N in Bountiful and hang a left at the top of the hill at the 4 way stop, that road will take you all the way up to the GWT at the top. Early season, I like to still hunt those pines up top. This time of year, just about anywhere in the scrub below snow line will work. Stick to the North facing slopes of some of the deeper draws- They'll be migrating down soon, and they provide good cover. Seldom do I see any monsters, But there are decent spikes up to smallish three points in some of those draws. The big boys tend to bed down on completely bare, rocky S. facing slopes. They're nearly impossible to approach, and when you do, you wind up at an odd shooting angle- downhill, with the sun in your eyes. Good luck- I know they're in there, I've just had all the fun I can stand dragging the SOB's out.

+100000000 That is why we have started with the bone em skin and cut them into steaks and pack them out method.

He gives good ideas. Try hiking the Parish trail up from centerville up. it puts you on top of centerville canyon HINT HINT. The fire road is also a great place to try. This time of year is also great if you hike up the pole line above the temple. The deer are still surpiseingly high up there right now. The biggest thing to remeber about that area is to glass then re glass then do it again. If you think you see something most of the time you do.

I've heard of the Parish trail, but have yet to locate its source. How do I get to it?

Oh- the season is over now, but the back side of Bountiful canyon, W of hardscrabble, holds tons of Grouse. if you're really good at playin' *****, it's a real hoot trying to bag fool hens with a bow. Just a thought.

Kelly is a good person to go with. I wish I could have gone with him or dave though out the year.

The top of it is closed now, but it is on skyline drive. There is a big pulloff on both sides of the road. A little atv road winds down to the north of it. There is a little sign that tells you where it starts. The bottom starts in centerville. Sorry do not know the street address just know how to get there. You can also access it by driveing the fire road from the B.

Where did you end up hunting today and how was it? I had a banner day on the Front - no blood -not even a shot, but was 100 yds from the biggest buck I have seen this year - just had no way to get any closer! I hope I can find him tomorrow morning. Saw plenty of great bucks AND plenty of does! ;)

To get to the Parrish Creek trail from the Centerville side (I'm a Centerville boy) go east on Parrish Lane - left at the top of Parrish - park in the lot and hike east you can't miss it.

Goin' out tomorrow for bunnies. I've had a bit of a gear hiccup and don't feel comfortable shooting at a deer with my bow. Warped limb.

Thanks for the info, though- I think I'll go 'scouting' that area soon.

:roll:

Glad you saw some deer, nice of other folks to hook you up with a spot to go.... and while I don't know for sure, I think they might have been above the B somewhere... :lol: Oh, shoot..... did I just give something away? Not that the whole post is about hunting above the B or anything. Its such a tiny area you know.... :? Some people take themselves way too seriously.

Shhh... you weren't supposed to say anything remember?? :wink: Its just funny to me, because I got chewed for helping a guy, his dad and old buddies with info on a spot to get the old folks out but its ok for others to ask for help on the forum, then post a report about said spot but they're not like the other folks that do exactly the same thing. Double standards is how I read that. Ok for me, but not for you. :? As is apparently popular to say on the forums nowadays.... Whiskey Tango Foxtrot??

I never got a PM?(But I'll double check) I wasn't up hunting, just had the camera and spotting scope. I did see a few bucks, but nothing huge. You guys were like a mile from me and I was almost out of gas (No lie) or I would have stomped through there.
