Getting Ready For Elk Hunting in Utah

Mike Schoby is getting ready for elk hunting in Utah and it doesn't take long to realize he's about to experience one of the greatest elk hunts of his life.

Hunting at Utah's storied Deserette ranch, Schoby finds the bulls vocal and plentiful.

For many, elk hunting in Utah is one of those dream hunts that might happen once in a lifetime. To prepare for the trip, Schoby made sure to include all essential gear and to check his rifle and ammo prior to hunting. Paying attention to the details can pay off big time at the moment of truth.

Leaving as few things to chance as possible is a good idea on every hunt. But when you're elk hunting in Utah -- on a place like the Deserette -- it's especially important because hunts like this don't happen very often.
