In 2022, an elk committee was formed to look at our management here in Utah. They came up with a goal of maintaining our quality of elk herd, but also at the same time increasing the opportunity. How do you do that? Well, we find out by talking to Dax Mangus, the Big Game Coordinator for the state of Utah. The popularity of elk hunting is demanding some changes in the way Utah manages our elk herds. Utah’s current elk management plan expires this year. So, a new 20-member committee was formed to evaluate and recommend new strategies to the public for hunting elk.
