Big bulls, bucks and hunting in Utah — BIG HUNT GUYS Podcast Ep. 57

Utah is one of the west’s premier elk states. In late 2022 a new ten year elk management plan was approved that will attempt to tackle “point creep” in the limited entry system and increase elk hunting opportunities. Lorenzo, Brady, and Trail sit down with Dax Mangus (UDWR Big Game Coordinator) and Mike Wardle (UDWR Beaver District Biologist) to discuss the new elk plan, hunting in Utah and how the plan may impact your draw strategy in the coming years. They also dive into mule deer management, the challenge of managing the desires of hunters and big game species in Utah, and potential changes to “technology” in hunting.
