Jim and Starr Mitchell drove to the Wasatch Mountains to fill Starr’s late season cow-elk tag. They didn’t see any cow-elks, but saw lots of deer. They also saw mountain lion and bobcat tracks and many Golden Eagles. The scenery was beautiful, but very, very cold. “It seems if you want an elk all you see is deer and vice versa,” Starr says. The couple camped out with warm sleeping bags in the back of their truck.
