Finished Collecting Utah Deer Points

Well, I am now done collecting points for deer in Utah.  I drew my 2015 muzzle loader tag for the Utah Book Cliffs with 13 points.  Now for the scoutting and then the hunting. 

 

I also drew a Colorado muzzle loader for deer in my home unit of 44 and a ML cow elk tag.

 

Let the fun begin Thumbs up

Congrats

Congrats on the tags! That is quite a bit of smoke pole hunting. Will you use the same setup for Utah and CO deer? Are the UT ML regs less restrictive (sabots, optics,etc.) than CO?

I'll use different loads for

I'll use different loads for both hunts.  Utah allows the use of sabots and pellets where Colorado doesn't and my inline shoots the sabots a lot better than anything else.  For Colorado I'll use 250 grain Thor bullets over 95 grains of pyrodex.  Utah on the other hand I'll be shooting TC Shockwave 240 grain bullets out of sabots over 115 grains of pyrodex.  Utah also alows the use of a 1x scope but I am not going to bother with that.
