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..

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.

Exactly.. I have tons of private access, but didnít get drawn. Kinda a waste for to put in if you have no idea about the area.

Theyíre not ďfor sure cool to huntĒ unless they specify that itís ďFeel free to huntĒ land. There is feel free land, there is hunt by reservation land and there is hunt by written permission land along with pieces of public ground. Thereís also areas that are feel free to hunt but you have to sign into  a log book. I know of a couple of those areas within the boundaries of that permit.
You have to determine what youíre looking at and go from there.

When I was scouting that area back in august, most of the properties showing on OnX were hunt by written permission which requires contacting the property owner.

:yeah:
And the parking areas that are noted are where the landowner wants people to park I believe.
