Bucky needs some help on a Utah Elk Hunt

Tonight a young man just dropped me an email because he is looking for some help.  Bucky is 17 years old and he is planning on his second elk hunt and he has tags.  Bucky drew general Non-Res Youth Any elk/any weapon/Statewide tag for Sept 13-25.  He wants to use this tag but does not know Utah very well and needs some advise on where to concentrate his efforts for an Archery hunt.  Bucky is looking for some assistance as he would like to do this hunt as a public lands hunt and unguided. Being 17 years old has its limitations and he is going to be working 3 jobs this summer to finance his trip out west.

Bucky cannot afford an outfitter and cannot make numerous trips out to Utah to scout for bulls.

He would like to know a bit more about some areas to concentrate his search for the Majestic Elk and he has limited time to hit the ground running.  It looks like Bucky will be taking out his bow for the adventure and I know he is already practicing hard for the trip.

So I know there are tons of you who read the site and know some of the areas this young man could have a reasonable chance of success.  Somewhere he is going to see some animals and be able to get into them on public land in one of the general draw units.  I don’t need to know where you send Bucky, just give him the best advise you can come up with.

If any of you have products, maps,  knowledge or advise for this young man, contact me and I will put you in touch with him.  This is our chance to give back to a young man who really has a passion for hunting and for conservation.

If you contact me through the site, i will put you in direct contact with Bucky.  Email me at


Lets all come together and help this young man accomplish his dream of his first elk!!!
