Our group has hunted Alta a few times the last 5 years - and done pretty decent in general but always wanted that Quality late tag - congrats 🍻

Bugger. Those were my 2 choices in that order too.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

I dont think there is much in this state that is better today than 15 years ago  :bash:  Carrying a rifle in the mule deer rut in a historical great genetic area is all I need to is have an opportunity to be out there, never know what you will stumble upon that time of year.

Well I personally wouldn't have wasted anything more than 2 points on an Alta permit and even then would have ate the tag but that's just me. I know this area very well an it is a crying shame it has dropped off so much but that has been stated thru many threads. I will be there again this weekend, it's a good thing the area has so much beauty otherwise it might be even more depressing. :twocents: But don't let me piss on your parade. Best of luck to you.

One option for this tag is to hunt low in November and look for a nice whitetail...the mule deer are hurting here but the whitetails are doing good, just mostly on private land.

There's more to life than hunting...there's fishing too!

At least you know your going to fill your tag, there's some bruiser 2 points in there.

Unless he used 2 points or less sounds like you've pissed on his parade.  :hello:

Nah. Sky was just very blunt about the truth. Huntwa is thick skinned and will do that tag as much justice as any other hunter. The saddest part is, nonsense in waiting til herds improve, because they are not going to.

Thats a fact.  Im sure Shane knows what he is in for and will put the work in.   There is still a chance at a monster muley or whitetail but most of all, there isnt a better time to be in Gods country.
