Nebo 2017 Archery Hunt

Happy Fathers day to all the dad's out there and hello to all. I just drew my first Utah Archery Tag in the Nebo Unit. I've been e-scouting the unit pretty hard and think I've found a couple spots I'd like to hike into and backpack camp/hunt for a few days. I'm not looking for the honey hole, but I was hoping someone who has some experience there could let me know what I'm in for and if buying a spike elk tag is worth the 400$ us non-resident guys spend.

I'm doing a solo back pack hunt. I like getting away from the crowds. I'm a Marine, been hunting Nevada since I was 10 and know my way around the mountian, so I'd like to think I know what I'm doing in the backcountry.

Thanks for any help guys!

I didn't realize that elk tag was not only spike but cow as well? I'll buy it as soon as I can if thats the deal.

As far as deer I'll hike in to the North part of the unit and see what happens. I have about 10 days to spend on the mountain. I plan to spend 5 or 6 deep in the back country and come out for the rest to relax a bit.

When and where can I buy the elk tag?
Archery elk tags go on sale July 11th, although in Utah general season archery elk tags are unlimited so don't feel like you're in a hurry. An archery tag in Utah is considered a "Hunter's Choice" tag so in spike units you can kill a spike or cow, on any bull units you can shoot any elk you want including a cow. The general season archery tag is also not unit specific so you can hunt any general season or spike unit you want throughout the season dates. A tag can be bought at any DWR location and at most sporting goods stores, Walmart, etc.

Thank you for your service
