Location, Terrain

Most of the hunting areas are located in the central and northern Utah near Vernal, Price, Snowville, and Logan. The terrain includes high desert sage covered rolling mountains with juniper and aspen draws, beatiful canyon lands with impressive rock formations, and forested mountains. Elevations in most areas is between 5000 to 8500 feet.

Hunt Methods, Physical Condition

Hunting methods vary depending on the game being hunted but may include glassing and spotting, stalking, watching feeding areas, and short hikes to glassing areas, using bird dogs or hound dogs, or hunting in blinds. Since many areas are easily accessed using 4x4 vehicles, hunts can be arranged for hunters with physical limitations, but you should try to be in as good of condition as possible for your hunt. Bearpaw Outfitters will adjust hunting methods to offer hunters with limitations the most successful hunt possible.
