The bucks may be still there, but you may not be able to get there without a 20 mile hike just to start your hunt.

That's a clean looking jeep. That and a chainsaw can get you a lot of places. We usually take a 6w Ranger to keep the abuse off the trucks.
Cattle might not be too big of an issue, there'll be a heavy concentration of them up on Huntsman bc of all the pools, but past that they've usually been scattered. They'll thicken up again from Spencer Rd on North to Big Mess bc of the creeks and guzzlers, but they shouldn't be bothering much of anything being there.
That's when I first built the Jeep. It's been through hell since then, and I wouldn't call it clean anymore, but it still gets the job done.
NICE Jeep Old Hunter! Maybe I need to start driving a truck.
I just assumed ranch sheep after seeing them in the flat tops...thanks for the monsoon season reminder. Solid rain for 2 days on a solo hunt wilderness hunt had me sewing all the holes in my clothes and reading every letter of a magazine I took in. It was one year after 9/11 and they read every name of those who died that day on the radio...may they RIP.
Oh, nice jeep . . . But the rig will generally only get you a fraction of the way to a giant high country muley!
Depends on where the hunt is. I have one unit I hunt, and the Jeep gets me above timberline.
I also have good boots.
