Utah Elk Hunting

Utah has some of the finest trophy elk hunting in the world. Elk herds have high bull to cow ratios allowing elk hunters to bugle at aggressive rutting bulls for the ultimate elk hunting experience. Bearpaw Outfitters past hunters have commented about seeing more elk on these Utah elk hunts than they've ever seen during any other open elk hunting season.
