We have a few kids with us that drew the Wasatch Mtn Current Creek cow elk tags this year and their hunt starts Nov 21. I've hunted this unit during September, but never this late in the year and honestly, am not sure where to find the herds at this time of year. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of where to try and locate some elk on this unit? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You obviously have not followed all of the Wasatch elk threads.....

Because there are NO elk left on the Wasatch unit......:p

You have your work cut out for you. Finding cows up there these days is not an easy task. I think the vast majority of the herd is on private ground by now due to pressure. There is hardly any snow up there so I assume they will still be high.

There are still elk to be had, and I think you could have luck in the Tabby Mountain area. But again, it's kind of a crap shoot these days.

That would be correct...I have not followed the elk thread as I am new to this forum. Thanks for the info Vanilla. I wish I would have known this before I put them in for that unit...oh well. If anyone has any additional information about locating elk on the unit, I'd really appreciate it! I'll try to get up there and do some more scouting before the hunt and see if we can find luck!

In my experience the elk are no longer dispersed across this unit. My guess is that you will find none until you find a bunch. I would look lower than most people normally hunt for elk.-----SS

If money is no object or if you have a friend that flies why not take a couple hour flight over the area to see if you can find them?

Oh how I wish that were the case...but unfortunately, money is very much an object! And I have no friends with planes...however, hose are both good ideas! :)

Try the fish and Game property north of hwy 40 across from soldier creek reservoir their were some cows in there. But be careful their is some private property you need to go through to get there. But fish and game has a right-of-way through the property and it is well marked. Good Luck!
Thank you Tracker!

Did anyone else hunt this unit today? We saw several hunters, but it didn't seem like anyone had got into the elk and we never heard any shots the whole day! We did see some nice big ruttin' bucks though!
