ELK HUNTS

Elk hunting is one of the most exciting and challenging hunts you will ever do. The western states offer a variety of elk hunting windows; archery in early September, rifle in late September and October, and late hunts in November. It you want to hear them bugling, look for a hunt in late September in most areas. By mid-October, when most firearms seasons are open, the elk are done breeding.

Utah Hunting Opportunities

Utah has some of the best elk hunting available.  We offer archery, muzzleloader and rifle hunts in most of the limited entry units across the state. The majority of our elk hunts take place during the rut. 

Archery hunts begin the middle of August thru mid-September.  Rifle hunts begin mid-September at the peak of the rut. Muzzleloader begins the end of September, when the bulls are still screaming.  Late season hunts begin in early November.  

Hunting areas are accessible from trucks and ATV’s  and there are areas that require hiking and horseback to get into the backcountry.

 

Elk in Utah are managed by age class. There are six units in the state managed for 7.5 – 8.0 year old bulls and 8 units managed for 6.5 – 7.0 year old bulls. These areas managed for older age bulls have potential to produce 370” plus bulls every year.  

 

Elk permits can be obtained by: 

  • Landowner Tags purchased via auctions
