All,

I am curious about guides who work the Wasatch unit. I drew this tag in 05 and ate tag soup. I was lucky enough to draw again. I am not completely sold on using a guide, but have never done so in the past. Questions I have:

What would I expect to pay? Who would you suggest/recommend? How are tips handled?

I have not had issues in the past finding elk on the unit. Had not considered a guide until a friend mentioned his uncle used one on this unit years ago with success. Thought it might be a option to increase my odds of success along with personal scouting trips.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Yeah not a whole ton of elk that way. My buddy drew the archery tag also this year. So I will be helping him on the Wasatch the last 2 weeks. I now of a couple spots but not a whole lot to get excited about.

I noticed that instead of 1000 cow tags for the opener of rifle they are only doing 500. Not sure if that will Change the heard much though 500 is still a little high in my opinion. Also There are a ton of hunters that kill cows south of strawberry because they think the boundaries for the cow tag are the same as the bull tag. They are way wrong. Like I said cows are killed even though they are in the wrong area.

The strawberry area gets hit pretty hard. Both cow and LE. Seems to be a lot of road hunters in that area too. I saw 6 bulls last saturday on the unit. One was a full grown 6x6 already. He's going to be a toad. The other 5 were just barely sprouting their 2nd and 3rd points. They were in a bachelor group

You think the southside is busy current creek is an absolute zoo during the general hunts. Back to the original thread Layton archer I am sure there are alot of knowledgeable guys on here to help you out if you dont go the guide route.
