I usually go to the Joe Watt area for the May 1 opener.  Everyone races off to their favorite spots when the gate is opened.  I just park at the bottom and then hike up to the top.  Lately I have had to walk all day to find one antler, but some people find zero.  Hard to imagine when a guy sees all the branch antlered bulls when the hay is put out.  A lot of theories why are created at the end of the day.  I do believe people are in there long before May 1, but they can't find them all.  I found a seven point antler in the lower area on Memorial weekend a few years ago and that was after I spent the day hiking the drainage.  Try to keep a positive attitude and keep looking at the ground.  When you stop use the binos to look over the area.  Hope you find something.  I doubt I will be there this year, work and family has other plans for me.
