So, I just bought an over-the-counter multi-season spike elk tag here in Utah. That lets me take a spike, cow, or bull, depending on the time and location. I can hunt during archery season, muzzleloader, and rifle seasons. Now, I have a cow elk tag, a spike tag, and a Dedicated Hunter buck tag. Hopefully, I'll get something this season, but my success hunting public land has not been great.
