    Unit 28 late archery

    It?s a been a long time since I?ve been on the fourm....kids, work, life in general! Was looking into bowhunting unit 28 in the late archery season for deer or elk. Due to my work schedule, that?s about the only opportunity I have to do a hunt there. I?ve been in 36b 10 years ago when my dad drew his sheep tag and only have driven through part of unit 28. Just curious how the deer and elk numbers are in the unit. I?m planning on calling the biologist in the area as well. Just figured someone on here would have some good input too! I know during December it can be cold and snowy, not much different than north central WI where I hunt! I love chasing mule deer and want more opportunities to chase them around!

    Not saying there are no deer in 28, but it is more Elky than Deery if you catch my drift...just my thought

    Thanks for your input! Maybe I’ll just concentrate on elk, but I think I’ll still have the deer tag in pocket in case I find a good buck. Do you know if those elk migrate out of that area or do they just come out of the higher elevations once the heavy snow hits? I’m assuming when I come in December, there will be snow. I noticed on google earth there are ag fields (private land)along the river. I’m wondering if they tend to start yarding up in these areas? Thanks again

    had some family working the mine at thunder mtn, back in the early 90s there were some nice bucks running round in 28 back then. we hunted the border of 27-28 . I killed 5X5 BULL and a decent 4x4 buck that year there.
    I haven't been there in years though.


    can't speak to where they winter but would expect they would be gone from were we hunted by December.
