Hey- i've started a new group on myspace- "Utah outfitters and hunters co-op". Hopefully, this will provide a sounding board those seeking outfitting/guiding services in Utah, or perhaps a place to provide new leads for those whom offer such services. If you're interested in joining, go to myspace.com/utoutfitterscoop.

It's also a good place to post various sightings of game animals, so that others may use such information to help determine which tags to apply for in the draw.

I feel we're all a community with common goals and interests. Not all of us have the opportunities to spend as much time in the field as we'd like to. Why don't we help each other out? With all the development and land-grabbing going around, it's hard to find places that hold deer any more. Let's stick together! Sound like a plan?

Can't you do that here?? I think it would be great! I'm clueless when it comes to finding certain species. Post em up!

Sure, we can do that here- But Myspace has over 300,000,000 users. It's a much larger audience. I've only found this place by stumbling upon it. Everyone knows of myspace. I'm 'hired gun', URL Myspace.com/thestocksmith

oh- Don't know the unit name, But I spotted a dozen wild turkeys in Citrus Grove, West of Francis about three weeks ago. Three toms (one young jake) and a bunch of hens.

A flock of nearly thirty turkeys NE of Huntsville last year, just south of Monte Cristo and due W of Causey reservoir. It was on private land, but it's bodered by BLM.

If you want an easy Extended Archery deer, and don't care about trophy quality or sex- let me know. I know a good spot for an easy 'meat deer'. I'll be going out there probably this weekend. Maybe we could team up.

Also- Neff's Canyon trailhead holds a few nice bucks. It gets quite a bit of hiking traffic this time of year, but late afternoon is a good time to be up there. I've noticed that with the rut on, a lot of Monarchs hang out there to sort out the heirarchy. Then they wait for the rest of the herd to move down from the high places once the snow hits. It's a very rugged, tough hunt- if you're not afraid to hoof it, it's a good spot.

Lots of Moose on the back side of bountiful canyon this time of year.

Hope that helps.

I can't figure out how to direct a PM to its recipient, so I'll send it here.

Neff's canyon is just off of Wasatch Boulevard... Let's see-

Going North on Wasatch Blvd.(approx. 3500 E) between 45th and 39th, there's a skywalk for pedestrians and a traffic light . Turn R at the traffic light, past the Jr High school. Continue E to Parkview Dr. (on the left). Turn at Parkview. Road winds around a bit, then comes to Park Lane (I think... it's 'Park something'). Turn R again. Follow this rd to White Wy. Turn R again. Road says 'dead end'- continue, till you come to the paved parking lot. The trail goes up a service road past a water tower, then splits in a copse of trees a couple hundred yards up. The N fork will take you up into the Twin Peaks Wilderness. It's straight up, and fairly tough. This trail goes all the way up into the Mt. Olympus trail, and also splits off toward Big Cottonwood Canyon.

The S fork goes straight up a narrow canyon. it's mostly scrambling over rough ****, but it holds lots of deer and very few people, except rock climbers. Ranges are short, and it's fairly open. A good place for a bow. Lots of cover for a careful hunter, and several places the topography forces the deer trails to bottleneck or converge.

The N fork is terribly thick. Hard to see anything moving until you get up top- about 4.5 miles. it opens up a bit, and you get some true solitude. Beautiful place, but Very, Very cold.

The 'Meat Deer' are holed up in the scrub NW of the Gun range in Fruit Heights. Take your time still hunting. These deer are stupid. There is an access point through a 'vita course' trailhead just off the gun range road. Good luck- let's try not to make this too public. Hopefully, we can group up and go all at once, rather than having a dozen people traipse around the spot at random times. Otherwise, hunt it all you want

I am interested in this, but I will NOT visit myspace EVER. I have a self-imposed boycott of that place. Get it on here, and you will be reaching MANY hunters that are not reached on myspace, just my thoughts.

I'm with ya On no myspace. My question is why do some of you want everyone and there dog, to know every single detail about you. :?
Not that I care about posting up what I've seen or where... but about myspace, I just don't have anything to hide, liked kinda creating my own little environment and things of that nature. Its helped me catch up with folks I'd lost contact with from California... who don't hunt and fish, so thats about it for me. My "friends" list on there includes people from this site... but mostly I just throw my pictures up there and stuff like that. I'm a member of several different groups on there... but only visit very occasionally any more. 8)

Everyone is welcome to their own opinions, and they seldom mean a whit to me. If you'd like to read the information supplied therein, you're welcome to. I'm not going to take the time to post things twice.

Otherwise, if you can stand to put forth the same amount of effort it requires to screen one's phone calls, distractions are few and far between. I've yet to view a single teeny-bopper's or otherwise juvenile page. It's called 'discretion'. Or better yet, 'accountable deniability'.

Re: new group-another idea, for safety's sake.

i figure most of us here were Scouts at one time or another, and have carried those lessons throughout our lives. For me, Rule No. 1: BE PREPARED has always been a mantra.
What about rule no.2(?): NEVER VENTURE OUT ALONE, AND IF YOU MUST, TELL SOMEONE WHERE YOU'RE GOING.
It's often difficult to finagle our schedules to coincide so that we may venture out accompanied. Sometimes, we must go alone, or not at all. Often, we tell a family member or leave a note to someone who, in all likelihood, is not that well versed in the outdoors or how to get where you're going. How about this:

When venturing out alone, leave a post with directions and coordinates, or even GPS waypoints if available. You need not post them publicly- perhaps you have friends in this forum who will look out for you should that freak accident occur. If you're not home within a designated number of hours, Search and rescue will have a resource by which they may better coordinate their efforts, and through a first-hand account, not by what a girlfriend or third cousin, twice removed, may be able to tell them. Venturing out is what keeps us alive, but coming home intact is what ensures we stay alive. We're hunter's, second- Woodsmen first. Any woodsmen worth his salt makes sure SOMEBODY knows where he's going.

That is why I am on myspace. I can keep in touch with old friends and have reunited with old high school friends I though fell off the face of the earth. I don't think I would like it for my kids, but for adults I think it is good if used properly.

I was curious, so I headed on over there and got the following message:

"Invalid Friend ID.
This user has either canceled their membership, or their account has been deleted."


Is there some kind of trick to this that I'm not catching onto?

Uh, yeah, do think i could pick up an application or something? I just think I would fit well into the company atmosphere and I believe I have the same shorterm as well as longterm goals in mind.

Well, Diamond member means you're a big snootie, think you're better than everyone jerk. Bronze member means you're a smart, laid back, sophisticated sportsman. I would shoot for the bronze if I were you.

Actually, it has to do with how much you've donated to help keep this forum going. If you look to the left on your screen, above the big circle for the forum archive, you'll see a link entitled Donate/Advertise. You can follow that link, and according to how much you spend, you get a certain member rating. But a still maintain that the Diamond members do seem a little snootie.
