Elk Ridge is one of the best units in Utah to hunt 180″+ mule deer, whether it be Archery, Muzzle Loader, or Rifle. The archery and muzzle loader hunts are one of our physically least demanding hunts as the preferred method is to cover country in side by sides and atv’s until we find your deer then put a stalk on it, or hunt from tree stands and ground blinds. The rifle is physically and emotionally far more demanding, as the deer have moved off the tops and require hours behind the glass searching for trophy deer. There are a limited number of tags available for these hunts so hunting pressure is low, for this reason it typically takes several preference points to draw. If resources allow Conservation tags are also available, and are tax deductible. We feel this hunt will be one of the most rewarding archery mule deer hunts a person will ever go on, we regularly pass on ten or more 150-180″ mule deer a day. Or come hunt the Blues side on the general unit where you can draw nearly every year.
