Well, it is official, the hunt is on for this year. It will be post rut in early december, but a hunt is a hunt.

Jealous, that is on my bucket list

So the Utah Muzzeloader Hunt has come and gone.  Did anybody out there have any success?? Pics??  I had a deer tag, no luck.  However the real focus was my sisters big bull tag.  We focused on that hunt with hopes of coming across a worthy buck to harvest (the hunts coincide).  I am happy to say that she was successful. It was so fun to be with her and play a role in her big hunt.  Here are a couple pics.

I don't have a lease, either, this year and will miss hunting.  I am hoping to go to a friend's near Kerrville later in the season.  They have some great exotics. 

Comment by Steve Dallas on October 11, 2012 at 8:02am

This is the first Nov since I started hunting that I won't be hunting. I need to get me a lease!!!

I have a question I want to throw out to all of you.  Muzzleloaders!  I am looking to upgrade my muzzleloader from a traditional to an in-line.  I have narrowed it down to the following:

Knight

Mountaineer

Disc Extreme

Bighorn

CVA

Optima

Thompson Center

Omega

What are your opinions of these guns?  I am in Utah and hunt Mule Deer and Elk.

Good luck on your future endeavors in the great outdoors Jesse.It's always good to bring other people, as well a yourself into this great human past time. Though I've yet to hunt elk, I would recommend starting with smaller game such as squirrels, rabbits, and the whitetail. I hear tell elk hunting is very labor intensive, and you'd need to carry out all that meat. The perfect weapon debate will never be settled, so I say it's good to have the right caliber to make a clean and ethical kill, but this comes mostly from being comfortable with your weapon and knowing your limitations. Practice, patience, and persistence will fill your freezer with the best food in the world. Just remember to be safe, smart, and respect all of nature, especially the animals you pursue. The kill is only second hand to the whole experience
Comment by Jesse Harper on March 7, 2012 at 7:48am

I just want to introduce myself.  My Name is Jesse Harper I am originally from Oregon, however I currently reside in England.  I have for as long as I can remember enjoyed the thought of hunt "being out in nature etc."  While growing up in Oregon I never fully appreciated the outdoors as much as  I would have liked.  I have pledged to myself that I will change this when I move back to Oregon next year.  I have looked at dates for the hunters safety course in oregon, I know that a winchester 270 will do me fine hunting for deer.  My son is 6 and he is always in front of the tv or ps3. I want to show him that there is more to life than that.  Why do it in a video game when you can do it for real.  I have researched extensively on different cleaning techniques, what calibre rifle to have (although what is a good calibre for elk?) When the seasons are and license fees.  thank you for taking the time to read this.

Finding your Purpose/Passion

Evening Gentlemen,Recently, life has thrown some colossal curve balls my way. Things I never expected to happen, well... happened. To be completely honest I've found myself all the way at the beginning of the metaphorical "level" with a clean slate.  This has been incredibly freeing and allowed me to spend some time exploring things I previously would never have done. After going through a really hard breakup of a long term relationship, and dealing with my parents going through some very hard…See More
