    I would agree with the above assessment on unit 43. Several years back, for a couple years in a row, I spent literally days behind binoculars & spotting scope while volunteering for a bighorn sheep count. Of course, I wasn't going to look away if I saw any big bucks up there above timberline, but in all that time up there all I ever saw was a forkhorn. I was only in a relatively small part of the unit, and the scenery was spectacular, and it looked like a real good place for a real whopper of a buck to hang out. I'm sure there would be a few around but I didn't see enough to make me willing to burn points there at the time. Of course, things could have changed by now.

    It has produced some big deer but I dont think alot of them. IMO its pretty over rated. I saw more deer on some NF land I tried the last few days then I did backpacking into 2 areas of the wilderness. I had a great time and hunt but I drew the ML tag 2nd choice and would have been very disappointed if I had waited that long to draw the rifle tag.
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."
