Drought Conditions may Increase Utah Bear Problems
Northern Utah isn't doing too bad but we're worried by the end of the summer it might get bad. Central to Southern Utah is very dry and hurting badly. Have a co-worker who has family in Monticello and she said they everybodys lawns are dead and the local resevoirs are almost empty. Only good thing about that is come fall if you find water, your sure to find what you're huntin.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
