I was about 15 minutes behind schedule once I got to my chosen spot. Within 5 minutes I had a bachelor herd of three bulls located.... ah! It feels good to finally be here, not to mention actually finding elk on the first morning of scouting. Two small raghorns ( A 5x5 and a 6x6) and nice mature 5x5 with long beams...I found a great mule deer buck in the canyon as well. On my way back to the trailhead I spotted a bachelor herd of 5 mule deer feeding amongst the wildflowers out in the open. One really nice buck with them. After a practice stalk... (I made it to 45 yards from the good buck) I headed to another glassing point to view where I'd come from... I found a big bull moose after 10 minutes.... man Utah has game everywhere!!! I got back to the truck around 11:45 and took to the road.
