You are going to have to have more than $20,000 and 6 guides for it not to be a big deal. I don't agree with Mossback's methods but he hunts the big bulls. I have hunted in the areas where he is finding these bulls and it isn't that easy finding and getting onto them. In all the years that I have deer and elk hunted I can say that I have only seen 2 400+ bull elk in these areas, and they were not sticking around after they saw me.
Heading out tomorrow morning for GMU 54 for third rifle season. Been 10 years since I hunted elk there. Come out every Sept. and trout fish though. Looks like should have snow by the time I get there Thursday. You probably hunt Meeker area. Guy from work hunts that area. Have a good one.
Another thing to think about, is this was no OTC unit. I'm sure it required points to hunt that unit and probably not a few. If it is a few or an OTC unit, I'd like to know where so I can make plans.
I can give you a half dozen units in Utah that you can find a bull over 400 pts or the type that is seen in the video. The hunters problem is that unless you are on a private ranch that is in Utah's CWMU program which is the same as Colorado's RWF program you are going to possibly wait 20+ years for a tag. But then Utah works on a bonus point system and as a non resident you actually almost have better odds of drawing a tag with 0 points than you do once you start to accumulate points and once you reach what is considered maximum points you still might not draw depending on the number of tags for the unit.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
