    Unit 45 Camping in Early November

    For people familiar with the area, what will I find open in the Cowles/Terrero Area? is it weather dependant? Doesn't look like there is a lot of accumulation until later in the season but there might be some snow. Do most hunters just find a truck camping spot outside of the USFS campgrounds?

    Hunting your Elk Area for Mule deer.

    For 4 years I've been hunting the same unit in Wyoming for elk. In that time I've only seen one mule deer buck in the unit. Now I know people kill deer in the unit, but I'm surprised that with 2 weeks in the summer riding trails and 4 elk seasons I haven't seen a shooter mule deer buck...

    Yep that is a guzzler. Funnels water to a holding tank where it won't soak in or evaporate. Then feeds a water trough. This is an Abandoned one in Nevada.

    How Secretive are you about your hunting areas?

    When you talk to other hunters it is only natural to inquire about the area someone got a nice animal in or has hunted for years. Generally I will mention the largest city in the county I'm hunting. I won't mention the trailhead, or drainage I'm using unless I encounter another hunter in my area.
