got my early draw in the wastach unit in utah any tips?

The Schofield area is outside of your hunting unit. The boundary is HWY 6 and West of US 191 or Indian Canyon. Another road that you can try is the one that takes off on top of Indian Canyon off of US 191, it will take you over the top of the White River area and depending on witch road you come down on into Strawberry, Soldier Summit, or into Sheep Creek. The Willow Creek area has always been good for a few bulls along with the Tie Fork area but that is some rough country, straight up and down.

I haven't been in the Wallsburg area for 35 years or so. At that time there were not too many roads but I have heard of some good bulls up in that area. As far as the Hobble Creek area there was a 435 bull taken out of that area a few years ago by MossBack outfitters on either the governors or sportsman's tag in December I believe. The area that I hunted most in White River is the left hand fork and the hill above Boiler Canyon. There is some private around Boiler but the top is Forest. There is a side road that will take you down to a dead end and then a closed off road that will take you out on a point over looking the left hand fork and the private property. There is usually some good bulls in that area. The last time that I was there during a spike hunt we saw a real nice 6x6 that was in the upper 300's. If you really get adventurous try the oak brush on Timpanogos . There has always been big bulls and bucks up there but you only have one road if they haven't closed it and a lot of hiking.

That's great country up there especially if you go up the Hobble Creek side and lot's of elk. I haven't been up there this year but we ran into a pile of elk up there last year on a few ATV rides.

Right above the submit button on your post there is a button called "add attachment". You may have to resize your image so that it's not too big. You can also reference a link to a photo hosting site like photo bucket.

I'm terrible with names but I checked a few GPS coordinates I had for some places I have seen good bulls. I referenced a topo for the names and you want to check out Poison Ridge and Fench Hollow.
