Toughest tag I have ever been on.  Sorry to say that, we had a great hunt but finding Mr. Whitey on public land up in the top will not be easy.

We saw tons of great mulies, sheep, turkeys, eagles, ducks, geese and a great museum, but exactly zero white tail on public.

You can look down a thousand feet or more and see plenty on private by the rivers and creeks.

In my opinion, this should not be a draw tag.

Depends how you look at it. The farmers that own land there in those units kill great bucks every year. 
I feel like itís one of those permit hunts where you have to pay attention to what youíre applying for unless you have access or you own land in the applicable units.  If itís mostly private ground and you donít have access to said private ground, maybe itís not the hunt for you.

West foothill tags are for the westsiders with no access to private and east foothill tag should be for guys that have some private access to have a good hunt... There are bucks up high but not like down low.. Have your boy knock on some doors after harvest is over and well before general deer season starts and you might get on some ground..

 He is 21 and never had a opportunity at a branched buck, your correct on this draw, being his 4th pick. I think he was just wigging it cause I've never seen a 4th pic come up before. Thanks for all the info we will be doing some knocking on doors and ckin out the country over there. thanks again guys.

Jackelope knows what he is talking about.  That is a tough hunt without local connections, the best advice I can give is stay mobile those deer are on the move that time of year.
