I found a small bachelor herd in Jackson Canyon (D5), north of Wheeler Lake. I passed up a little 2x3 buck because I was alone and had no way of getting that deer out of the canyon by myself. Oh well, serves me right for going that far in alone. But the deer are starting to move now that the weather has cooled off. I saw a herd of eight does down by Woodchuck Basin trailhead on Monday and Tuesday, and another herd of 12 does and five faws on the south side of Wheeler Lake on Tuesday and Wendsday. I saw a huge buck track that was working in circles around me the whole time, doing his best to avoid me. I didn't see anything below 7000ft. If anyone can get up to the Lake Alpine area this week and is willing to packin a few miles north of HWY 4, you should have some success.
Good job on getting it done in D5, and on the last day! congrats
