So slightly differant question. Can a guy hunt antelope one year while scouting for deer to hunt the fallowing year in the same unit that has trophy bucks? 80"+ and 180"+
Hey IKIC thats the unit I been looking for! Let me know when you find it;) All I want is a unit full of 80 and 180 bucks that I can draw every other year with no hunting pressure. Really I would like it to have plenty of 330 bulls too. That way each could take up to 2 points to draw and I could still hunt it every year.
I noticed that the hunter success in region G was right around 25% and unit 89 had about 83% hunter success rates. Unit 89 would take me about 5-6 points to draw the tag but do you guys think it would be worth the 3 year wait?? I don't think the deer quality will be much better but there will be a lot less pressure and better chance of killing a buck with 83% success rates!! What do you guys think? What would you do? Is unit 89 worth waiting 6 years??
That's the big question I have I guess. My brother and I hunt in Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada and Utah so we usually have 1-2 tags each every year. Sometimes 3 if we get lucky ha. So I'm going to have places to hunt. Next year I have 3 pp in Colorado so we are pretty much guaranteed a high country archery deer tag. I have 2 deer points in Nevada so I have a good chance at that. Not to mention 7 archery elk points so I have decent chance to get that. And then Utah General deer. So I guess what I'm saying is that I don't HAVE to hunt Wyoming next year. I have been wanting to for quite a few years now so that's what I would like to do, but I also have another options. But I do have enough points to get Region G so if I'm going to hunt G I should try to get it next year so that I'm not building points for an area that I can already draw now. . If it's not worth it to get region G then I can just wait a few years and try to get unit 89 and have a 'better' hunt.
What do you guys think?
I wouldnt go just on success rates. General hunts are OTC to residents and there are probably alot more road hunters and guys not really hunting then there is in a unit that takes a few points to draw.
