Utah's special youth elk season offers excellent rut hunting

Garret Simpson shows off his five-point bull.

When Hunts.Net Customer Frank Simpson had two sons draw special tags for Utah's September youth elk season, he called us for advice. Rich LaRocco of Hunts.Net arranged a private-land hunt at a price that Frank could afford for both sons. These pictures show the results. If you have daughters or sons in the 14- to 16-year-old category, be sure to apply in February for this hunt. Prices vary from about $2,500 to $5,000, depending on the ranch. The less expensive hunts take place on private or private-access land where hunters in September would have a good chance of taking a 4x4 to small 6x6 bull. The more expensive hunts typically occur in an area where a selective hunter would have a good chance at a nice 6x6. Call for details.
