    Max Bonus points

    Thank You everyone for the information. I live in unit one and agree that there are a lot of small bucks. I was really looking at 2a or 2c but then again access and small bucks has held me back. What is the public access like in 19a or 19b? I am also looking at units 4 and 5. 9 and 10 are really looking good, what is the access to the big bo like and would it be worth purchasing the access permit.

    Max Bonus points

    I have asked this before and now asking it again. What unit would you put in for if you had 25 (almost Max) bonus points for antelope ? Go hunt gives me a choice of about 10 units. I am looking to do a DIY hunt and can spend lots of time scouting. So at this time I am not looking to hire a guide. I would just like your opinion on what area would give me the best chance at an 80+ buck. I have only hunted antelope one time before and did not harvest an antelope, only succeeded in nocking the sights off my muzzle loader. Thanks in advance for all your help DCM

    12 points...now what?

    they need to increase the bonus point pass to 40 % I am still waiting for a muzzle loader tag.

    Super Bonus Point

    I feel that after reading all I can on this I feel that the super bonus point is a good idea if opened up to allow the purchase for each species each year and not be limited to only one . For the three species that I have max bonus points for I do not have to choose one and loss ground on the others. If this point is only usable for only one year it will only benefit those with max points and reduce the effectiveness of it. To offset the concerns of points creeping up increase the bonus point pass to 40% or evan 30%. this would still allow the majority of the tags available in the general draw and reduce the points creep that we are already seeing.

    Pratt Lake

    Made it by Pratt this weekend and it is not dry. The lake is actually spring fed from underneath. The water level is low but not dry. The fishing was slow but it was mid day when I was there and only stayed for about an hour.

    Unit 27 Mule deer help

    Thanks Does anyone know of any good mules for sale to save the barrel horse? At a reasonable price of course. I think I will start looking around the rim area. Has anybody been into the bear wallow wilderness area?

    Unit 27 Mule deer help

    Thanks for the replies. It is actually my wife's tag for the early hunt. She is open to getting off the beaten path a horse back as long as it is not to rough for her barrel horse. Have they cleaned up any of the trails up around Hannegan Meadows after the wallow fire? She is from Wilcox and use to hunt low for muleys and in the hills for Whitetail. I know that the Blue gets hit really hard during the archery hunt in January, would it be good to take some of the trails off of there? DCM

    Unit 27 Mule deer help

    It has been a while since we have had a rifle deer tag in unit 27. You can find every other post with something about north of the river, but what about the south side. I am looking for some general information on places to start looking in Unit 27. High or Low?? Is it better to hunt high during the early hunt like up around Middle Mountain, or low off three bar mesa? Do the deer stay down on the blue year round or is there a big migration? DCM

    And so it begins.

    I got a hit for $45.00 so it is either me in unit 13B or 27 Dec. Or my wife Unit 27 Nov. or Unit 1. Either way we will be chasing corp around this year. And to top it off my brother in law got a hit for $300 Unit 13B or 27 Dec. Let the fun begin, I will try not to tear up my knee like i did the last time i hunted mules. DCM
