I Drew out for the Kamas area this year. I have never been after Mulies but have gone after Elk before. Does anyone have any ideas about the Kamas area. I plan on doing alot of scouting/camping this summer but I'm sure that the animals I find in June-Sep are going to be relocated in Oct. Should I start in low or High elevations. Should I beet the brush or glass? Send a PM if you want to share some delicate info that you don't want to broadcast. Or if anyone needs a hiking partner to scout around then I'm your guy. Any info is great.

As you will find, lots of Kamas is dense, and glassing opportunities are more limited than other areas.

Just be sure to drive below the speed limit if you are driving the highway at dusk in the summer. I hit the brakes frequently for deer along there.

Congrats on your first muley hunt utahhunter! Just know going in hunting bucks is nothing like chasing elk. The Kamas unit will have a lot of hunters on the opening, but the week days after things will thin out quite a bit.

Any and every dirt road will be full of atv's. There will be a few hunters with horses taking the trail heads up to the top, but not a whole lot of them. There are areas to glass but not many, do your homework this summer. The bucks will move into the thick nasty stuff post haste, many becoming almost exclusively nocturnal. Early morning will be better than the evening, but both will be your best bet.

I would suggest you stay out from dark to dark, pack what you will need to do so. If you hunt the opening, pick a spot that is a natural funnel and stay on it all day, let the other guys push the critters around. When things slow down a bit during the following week, the deer will slowly move back into more normal patterns but on a limited basis. When you do push the steep nasty stuff, remember to go the way of the snail...SLOW.

Best of luck to you, and enjoy your hunt for muleys, regardless of the outcome.:grin:
