I've only been able to get out a few times so far but it's been dismal for me. Anyone else seeing anything or connected yet?

You will be hard pressed to find a buck in there until the rut kicks in.  Ive been out 4 or 5 times, seen 20 does and not one buck.

I was wondering the same thing but leaning more towards Eatonville Hancock. Anyone know if the roads are ok for a car or do you need a truck for sure? Any Blacktail spotted?

Been in there quite a bit, saw 1 spike and a 2 point on the road out last night, was kind of sketchy as far as shooting light goes, so I didn't shoot him. Seen very few does, weather has been bright and sunny, haven't even really had a good frost yet

Same here..  I wouldn't buy a pass, no animals and I heard Vail and Capitol Forest is where to go.  I'd go there.

I think they really screwed up changing that unit 654 from 2 pt or better to any buck.

Vail sells out permits in minutes from the research I did

Spent all day on the king creek side today, didn’t see a deer.  Going to try the other side tomorrow.  With my dad so mostly road hunting.   jackmaster has been in there for the past 2 days, zero deer seen!

I'm just getting off work. Was planning on mountain biking in tomorrow but these reports are making me want to sleep in!

Finally some action last night!

Gut pile on the side of the road...drag marks from the middle of the road to the side to gut it out.

Everyone in hancock is looking in the timber and clear cuts but apparently they are standing in the middle of the road ;)

Season isnt over yet
