Anyone want to BS with me what they know about it.  Anyone have local knowledge.   I'm trying to film there not hunt so dont worry about me zeroing in on your tag.   Feel free to PM me to not attract attention.   I usually figure out an area myself.   If I can save a couple tanks of gas or the possibility of losing interest before I figure it out then maybe some local knowledge might help.

Good luck with the info search. Are you still searching for calendar bucks? You seemed to have posted quite a few dandies this year.

I'd like to get some winter shots for next years possibly, but just love big muleys.  ITs fun to explore country you'll never get a chance to becasue of draw odds.    Wind River range is putting out some bigs but thats a little far for me.   The Methow is a ghost town and thats normally where I'd spend time on the winter range.   I understand Mt Jefferson has some phenomenal bucks.  I'd kinda like to see that for myself. 

I did good this year on the Calendar.  I think I have only posted pics of one deer thats in the Calendar so far.  All I have posted have been the rejects.

I'll certainly comb some other sites.   I was hopeing we might have some Oregon transplants here.   At least here folks know me and know that I'm not going to ruin anything or hunt/steal their spots.

Hey guys, I'm also going to be "taking pictures" next September from about the 9th-22nd. Any honey holes you'd recommend in the NE?  :) Best of luck, Bone!

I think I have ignored looking into this area as I cant imagine it being that great the fact its next to a reservation.  I think its a 6 deer per member allowance.

Did you post on ifish?  I didn't see it.  Figured you'd get a lot of griping about the natives and loss of quality in that unit.  :-)


Oregon's deer numbers are down across the board; between the winters, poaching, etc..  And Oregon manages deer for opportunity, not quality.   So finding a good location to get lots of photos for your calendar isn't easy.   


There are still big bucks in all the east cascades units.  Just have to try hard to find them, and might not be worth the return on time invested due to smaller quantities of them.   Honestly this time of year your odds are better of finding them in the farm fields.   Or hanging out in the towns.  Suburbs of Bend are holding some large bucks right now. 


You could also just go to Umatilla NWR.  There is a reason that buck tag takes forever to draw.
