GMU 260 Foster Creek advice
« on: June 21, 2010, 12:45:52 PM »
We have a walleye trip scheduled for July 4th weekend.  One of the things I wanted to do was to scout GMU 260 Foster Creek.  We'll be there this fall.  Can I try to spot deer or will the location they're in now be that much different come Oct?  Elevation change isn't that drastic so, I was hoping they'd stay put for the most part.  Any tips?

The only reason they are going to move out on that area, is due to hunting pressure... That area gets hit hard during rifle season. I grew up a couple miles down the road.. To be honest, unless you have permission on private property that area can be difficult to hunt.. I've only hunted it for a couple days for the entire time I lived in that area.. I only saw a couple legal bucks and there were orange vests everywhere..... I've never hunted it since... Now Yote hunting is a different story.. I hunt that unit for yotes all the time.. Sorry if thats not what you wanted to hear, but I thought I'd atleast be honest.. If I were you, since you like to walleye fish (Banks lake, lake Roosevelt) , scout out the Roosevelt unit.. I believe its 133.. I've hunted that unit several times and have had success.

We have access to 640 acres that butts right up against the Central Ferry state wildlife recreation area.  The plan is to sit on that property and wait for the hunters to chase the deer to us.

Well then it looks like you have a pretty good shot to get a deer then... There are probably going to be deer in the 640 acres, but come opening day, there will be alot of deer moving out of that state land.. You have the right idea to let the people on the state land push the deer to you..
