We have a tiny bit of private land that is ok for pheasants and whitetail, but our muleys are all public land. They all make mistakes. You just have to be at the right place at the right time.
That would be helpful tdcour. I'd probably be most interested to see if EHD hits the area again this year. Its starting to get pretty dry again right now in ND and without a good rain soon I think the EHD will be bad again. I'd probably just do an otc res tag if I went to SD. I've heard you can shoot either whitetail or muleys with a res tag so if the whitetail population was in disarray I'd probably skip out for a few more years. I always find monster whitetails in my scope when I have a muley tag and big muleys when I have a whitetail tag. It sure would be nice to be able to go after whatever perks my interest.
