120

You are right, thanks - I was looking at the next line, unit 122 type 6. Opens 15 October. Maybe we'll try that one.

wyo 113 goat and 120 cow elk

I'm buying a leftover 113 antelope tag in a couple weeks and am wondering if a 120 youth cow elk tag for my son is worth picking up as well? Looks like they're close to each other and if we wait...

Wyoming elk unit 125

Burned my points in unit 7 in 2012 (great hunt) and now have only two points for elk. Harvest percentage in 125 is very high for branch-antlered bulls and it's easy to draw. I've been near Elk...

Maybe I misunderstood. Are you trying to shoot a bullet through the bear, then through the hog, and then through the elk?

Just guessing - retired artillery gunner?

Leftover goat

It is illegal in Utah to have a gun, even in camp, when you're archery hunting deer or elk. Thankfully, concealed carry gets around that law.
