I have drawn a cow elk tag in the Pine Valley Unit. It basically covers everything south of highway 56 over to I-15 in the Southwest corner of Utah. This is a low success hunt. If any of you have any information on the location of the elk herds in this area or have tips for scouting, I would appreciate your input.

Thanks.

All I know is that it is a VERY tough hunt. I've tried a bit to find the elk on this unit and have not been able to do so. I hope you can get some answers from someone who has actually seen an elk on the unit.

After they killed the small herd off by New Harmony after a guy got killed on I15 a few years back I have not seen one on that unit. I don't know where any hang out unless it is higher up on pinevalley mt in the wilderness. Sorry I would help if I could. I will ask around and if I hear anything I will post.

That could be a tough hunt. It might not hurt to try over by the towns of central and Pine Valley, or out west of Enterprise by the border. I don't know if those will produce anything, but it wouldn't hurt to try.

I do know there are some up in the wilderness area and down lower towards Central. I have also heard of elk out by the Nevada border.

Thanks to all. If you have any further information, please let me know. I may be the only one with a tag in that area!

I just talked to some guys from Nevada that hunt alot and they said there was a pretty good herd on the Utah Nevada border I think they said around White Rocks which would be west of Enterprise town and also east of the reservoir.

Anyway, if it were me I would try scouting that area sometime before the hunt to see if there were any elk.

Good luck.

The White Rocks area is a very neat area. If anything it would be worth just going out to see the scenery. Yeah, you may stumble into some elk as well. Keep us posted.

My business partner is from Enterprise and knows the area very well so maybe I'll have him show me the area and scout it for a weekend. Thanks again!

I just re-read my post, sorry, I wanted to say west of the reservoir. However there could be some Southeast of the reservoir closer to Pinevalley mountain.
