NW Utah Private Ranch Hunts
95 W. 1st N St.
Manila, UT 84046

Hunt ID: 8070-UT-G-C-2500-D1N-BCElkMDeerAntelope-NIL2AMA-O1RJ-ED1J Since this outfitter has 8 miles of property in Wyoming and then it connects directly with 8 miles of property in Utah the options can get complex with different licenses application dates as well as hunting season dates. UTAH Utah Wyoming Boarder Utah Muzzleloader Elk, only 2 left $ 3995 reduced to only $ 2495, Utah Licenses over the counter, hunt November 1st, 100% success in the past on non-migrating elk herd (Extremely unique to have a non-Migrating Elk Herd, makes success easier). If you like cow elk for the freezer the December or even the January hunt is guided with lodging for only $1795 including $500 voucher, so the guided hunt with lodging would calculate out to only $ 1095 when you break it all down. This outfitter manages this non-migrating herd and only takes a total of 8 bulls and 8 cows per year, so speak up early because he fills his quota early and becomes booked up about 6 months in advance. The Utah Application deadline is the end of February, so it is best to contact me before mid-February to get things worked out before the draw application deadline. Utah application Deadlines for Mule Deer, Antelope and elk vary greatly as so the method to get them and the weapon to hunt them with. For the most part there is an archery, muzzleloader and rifle season for each of them. Some are a 100 % draw if the application is in February 28th. Others are done with vouchers from the landowner and still some are drawing with points. The archer deer and elk seasons are in September with the muzzleloader during September also. The Muzzleloader elk is usually the first week in November. Save money hunt Utah for Elk! Or Trophy Bucks in Utah or Wyoming. Then prohibitive cost licenses and vouchers required getting the licenses and high outfitting costs. For a limited time, hunts will be available in Utah at a reduced discounted price and even the license costs are lower than all the other states for elk. Additionally, the hunt is discounted to keep the price of the hunt low. Add that to the elk license for a non-resident $ 410 for a bull and $ 288 for a cow. For California Hunters the mileage is shorter, the cow license is $ 200 less than Colorado and the bull license is $250 less than Colorado! This outfitter has 16,000 acres in Utah and attached he has 6,000 more acres on the Wyoming side of the state line. With this he has a great package of combination hunts. This make the packages above somewhat confusing with different dates by each state, but the flexibility is great when you are working a tight schedule. He has guided 2 on 1 as a standard. There is 1 on 1 guided available on the trophy hunts. Add to this a semi-guided and price reduced 4 on 1 for antelope and even a DIY for antelope. There are even doe deer or antelope DIY meat hunts available. The bad thing is that he does book up early with so many discounted hunt options. And he does hunt it extremely lightly to continue to have the quality he requires. Guided Five day with lodging rifle bull elk hunt $4000 reduced to only $ 2995 with an over the counter license. If you’re a fancier of muzzleloader hunting this outfitter will extend this offer to you also, $ 3495 guided muzzleloader elk hunt on private land reduced to only $ 2495 for the first 4 hunters that book. Licenses are available over the counter. This is great because in Colorado to hunt elk with a muzzleloader it requires at least 2 points to draw. The Supply is limited and on a first come first serve basis. Guided 5-day hunts on private land with lodging, plenty of alfalfa and mountain. We have been filling 100% for the past 3 years. This is an over the counter license, but we only take a total of 8 elk hunters per year and book up fast.

It can even work where you locate a bugling bull and slip in on him for a spot and stalk if he refuses to come to you. Warning this is a high adrenaline hunt, having a 1000 bull elk screaming in your face and your muzzleloader only shoots 1 bullet at a time can make you sweat rocks. The bottom line is when he is close enough to be certain that you have a good shot, squeeze one off, and hit the cap…. And pray.

This is something that only the archery hunters can partake in, it is bear hunting over bait! Across the US there are only a few states that allow hunting bear over bait, so we are forced to go to Canada. The bait and stand are set up for archery range shooting and these are quality black bears because we only do a maximum of 2 bear hunts per year. Archery is a very efficient way to take bears over bait because you can pre-determine your distance…………………………………….…………………... $2995 Discounts are available if 2 bear hunters book together. In the past, many went to Canada to hunt bear and ate the $1000 worth of expense for the additional travel, along with the hassle involved with the border crossing both ways along with customs. Also, if you have a felony you can’t get across the border even if you wanted to. A low-end felony of crossing and making a U-turn on the “Emergency vehicle” or other crossing is a felony believe it or not, along with many domestic catch all charges. The gun hunters can hunt with dogs and free range which is also unique to Utah. We average close to 100% on these hunts.
