you can tell a big buck when you see one with or without the hunter in the pic. Applecreek and wilderness whitetails have got some sweet bucks on thier places. Anybody have any live pics of some giants on thier preserve? Dead or alive pics it doesnt matter. Big bucks are just fun to see....

Use to have the best shed hunting around here but it went to hell real fast these past years. most of the elk dont start to drop until mid to late march. with the amount of people hunting sheds now its a complete joke. To many highschool kids rushing in when the first horn hits the ground and they push out every deer or elk in the area. I've lost alot of interest in shed hunting anymore after all this crap started happening. I remember the days when I hauld a whole trailer full of shed to the horn buyer all in one year. cant do that now. I didn't even look for elk last year during shed season and havent been out looking for deer since november. Buck numbers here are at all time lows and the size of elk now days arent worth racing the whole town up the mtn to pick up a horn hahaha. As for jackson I've heard thats really fun up there and have been thinking about going up there when they open it to shed hunt. Dont know much about it tho...

Theres a place up there im talking about where the elk move from yellow stone and winter. People arent allowed to pick up horns until a set date... wish I could keep UT for me and only me but thats not the case. Honestly UT is the worst place to hunt horns cuz the whole state and thier dogs(People actually use dogs) hunt horns. Be my guest and come hunt horns here haha Ill tell you right where to go where I use to load up on sheds back in the good days. You might find one or two but the hike in and out isnt worth it when there's boot tracks all over and the biggest bull in the area is a 320 or so bull

I've hears that same thing about the boy scouts. I'll have to look for more info about it and get back with you. There's a place up there that isnt fenced but is closed to shed hunting until a certin date that the public can go pick up horns. I've seen pics of trucks and cars backed up for miles all in line to get sent out to look for horns. Its alot like shed hunting anywhere in Utah and close surrounding areas.
