Getting ready for a mule deer hunting trip to Monticello, Utah. Have not hunted in that area in a couple of years. Was wondering if anyone has done any scouting of the area lately. Just cleaned my Bar 300 mag winchester as my primary rifle and will have a backup rifle which is a BDL Remington 30-06. Season for the rifle season starts the 23rd of October and ends the 27th.
Well! Since nobody from this forum has hunted in the Monticello, Utah area, I am leaving tomorrow Oct. 16, for my hunting trip and I will do some scouting before the season starts. I am also taking my golf clubs since they have one of the best golf coarses I have seen. Quite a story behind that golf coarse. Loading my diesel pusher coach up with all my hunting equipment and I will report when I get back of my hunting trip and hopeful that I get a nice big buck. Reports from the Fish and Game department says that there are lots of bucks in the south eastern part of Utah. We will see!
Can't say the same for other area's of Utah and they have cut down the hunting days in some area's from five to three. The purpose behind this is to get a certain amount of bucks to doe ratio. And to see if they can get the heards back up to satisfactory conditions. Luckily the area where I am going to hunt stayed at five hunting days.
