With my 2021 elk hunting season now being over, I get to write about and share some of the many lessons learned and stories from the woods. I know I basically didn’t touch the blog or YouTube channel during this period as I was trying to balance being in the woods, family obligations and joys of having a new puppy in the house. I did keep my IG/FB followers mostly informed of how things were going though (pacificnwbestlife on IG and facebook.com/pnwbestlife on FB). Read on if you wish to learn about the shot I took on an elk during the season.

Hunting for elk in Utah during winter is an amazing experience whether you get to fill your elk tag or not. On this Utah elk trip, we ended up with a whole lot of tag soup, but this was largely a factor of the deck not being stacked in our favor. I’m not always as excited to write about trips which didn’t result in punching tags or fish. However, any hunting trip where you experience the kinds of back country views we had, where you learn a lot that can be applied to the next season and you stayed safe and warm (mostly), is a great trip.
