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.
The record books, that are put out by Boone & Crocket and Pope & Young and where I live is Henry Kelsey they are a great way to research a state or a province for big game. This does take some time but the knowledge it gives you, can be very valuable. Not all hunters have their trophies recorded, as where I live after the Hanson Buck became the new world record typical Whitetail, we saw a flood of hunters and now that has happened, some hunters are shying away from the record books but...
