I just found out I drew San Juan Utah archery elk tag. I was wondering if there are roadless areas where I could use my horses of if I'm better off taking a quad. Any info would be helpful. Thanks.
I'm really jealous!!!! Did you get an expo tag? I've missed two years in a row now.
BTW you can hunt them either way down there. You can shoot a pig without either in fact. I hunted the San Juan for a week this last year and there are a ton of big bulls there right now despite some saying otherwise this year. I got within 10 yards of 390 class bull and I was crying that I didn't have an elk tag.
Understanding wind currents and thermals in hilly, broken terrain can often be incredibly frustrating. I've found that collecting and storing milkweed seed pods during the late summer has made me a better hunter in the bluff country that I hunt. These little feather like seed dispersers will float on the lightest of air currents and will show you what the wind is not only doing right at you're location but more importantly down range. I like to use the off season to float them...
