This year I have 11 points and would really like to draw a decent tag , I'm getting tired of putting in and not drawing . I thought I would have drawn a tag a few years ago. I want to start putting in for elk . Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated . Thanks for your help .

Biggest antelope I've ever seen in my life was in the riverbed back when family friends owned the dryfarm there.

I've heard riverbed is one of if not the best in state . Didn't think it would take this many points though. I don't know if I want to put in and not draw again though.

Put in for Deseret!

There are a lot of hunts/units you can draw that will be suitable for you.

find a unit you can draw. Hunt pronghorn and make sure you have a cooler with ice on hand for your meat. Then next year. you can start putting in for elk!

My standard setup for antelope hunting is a 160 qt cooler with 60 lbs of ice before I get in the field. It makes an incredible difference in the meat quality when you can put it immediately in the ice. Even those big bucks can be absolutely delicious!

Amen!

You should see the look on peoples faces when I tell them I would take a well taken care pronghorn steak before I would take an elk steak! It cracks me up every time!

Speaking of pronghorn steaks! I better get some thawing for tonight! Wyoming and utah treated me well last year! :mrgreen:

I have drawn two archery antelope tags on the Riverbed. Took one nice one with my compound and one with my recurve. Both nice goats, P&Y and are sentimental to me. I really like that unit, it's has some great Antelope out there.
