Two words...Lowe Peak.

Also...lots of the lower country is private, so you either get permission or plan to hike a lot to get into elk country.

Realistcly if you find a nice 290-300 bull dont hesitate to shoot .there are some bigger bulls but fewer and far between. I watched a good 330 bull on that unit this year during the winter. He was by far the biggest bull I seen. That unit is in my backyard should be a fun hunt congrats

Not the bulls there used to be .My son had an early rifle tag 2 years ago and we were right down to the wire before he dropped one.

No not Ophir ,Ophir is tough after all the archery hunters get done. I could probably show you around some if you can swing out this way and bring.g a wheeler.

I know of a 330" and 350" bulls killed on the muzzy hunt last year up Ophir.
And that was after the early rifle guys had their pick.
But they were in very tough to get places.

Oquirrh-Stansbury early rifle

My friend drew a bull tag and asked me for help. I used to live in Tooele, however that was over 30 years ago. Are there any elk on the Stansbury side? Has anyone hunted it lately or any of you locals have any recent news??? Anything will be appreciated.

I found a herd of at least 150 Sunday night. I don't know the name of any mountain and am told it is public ground. I am sure we can figure it out with a map etc.

There are very few elk on the Stansburys.
If Cheddarnut saw 150 elk together.
Probably not on the Stansburys.

Yup plus 1 on the Ophir area. It does get some traffic but the elk wise up to it. And dip down into the thick stuff. They are still there though.
