Bugling Elk in Utah

Petersens Hunting's Mike Schoby is after bugling elk in Utah.

In this video, Schoby is hunting the famed Deserette Ranch and it's hard to determine which is more incredible: The scenery or the amount of bugling bulls captured on camera.

The Deserette is intensely managed and Schoby finds himself passing on bulls that wouldn't get a pass anywhere else in the country. But with so many big bulls around and responding to calls, it makes the decision to hold out for a truly big bull a bit easier.

Hunting bugling elk in Utah is a bucket list type of hunt for many and this outing shows why. With bugles ringing from every ridge and monster bulls moving, the action is intense.
