Unreal Elk Hunting in Utah

Insane. There's just no other way to describe the Utah elk hunt that Mike Schoby experiences in this video.

Big bulls and lots of them. Screaming bugles. Intense action. Gorgeous scenery. This hunt is the option of a dream Utah elk hunt.

Schoby is at Utah's Deserette Ranch and there are plenty of bulls but he's in search of an old, mature bull which adds to the challenge. But elk hunting in Utah is unlike elk hunting in many other places of the country. Careful management on the Deserette has created an elk population that is almost unbelievable with lots of bulls and a healthy mix of mature animals.

Schoby has an elk tag in his pocket and finds elk hunting in Utah to be some of the best elk hunting of his life.
