I see an occasional deer out there that blows my mind..." where the ...... did that come from."    Might be one of the better hunts this fall in regards to deer.

Getting closer..  I've put nearly 1,000 miles on my bicycle since April 1st.  Lost 46 lbs.  Can't wait to enjoy tagging along with my son.  Let's roll! (no pun intended)

Picked up a few sheds there when I was in college. Huge country from the top down to the river.  I drew that tag once but wasn't able to hunt it because of another draw.

there are some real dandys in there, and the nice thing about that unit is you don't need a bunch of snow to get on a good buck they all live there year round. that can take some pressure off

Glass, glass, glass. The big deep canyons hold some nice deer. One in particular in the burn area.
Best of luck!

I saw a good one last night. I didn’t get him on film.  He was trailing hard.  Archery wouldn’t have worked, 30-06 would have made great work.

Does anyone come from the river when they draw this tag.
Lead em if they're running.

Have a picture of a buddy's relative who shot a hog in 329  with his rifle tag.

Hunted all day today....saw about a dozen deer, two of which were smallish bucks.  Also ran into some sheep down near the river which was fun to see.

Good luck! If I had the tag I would definitely concentrate my efforts along Beacon Ridge Rd from park creek down to the observatory in the wind farm. Always see multiple nice bucks in that area chasing does during rifle elk season. Saw several nice ones this year and heard of a giant in that area.
