yeah we'll put in our time for sure. buddy has hunted the area for 25 years.If you plan on hunting unit 44 all I can say is get out there and scout. The deer numbers are down and while there is still a great buck out there for a lot of us they are getting harder and harder to find.
Yeah numbers are down for sure. But that's when the big big bucks come around with less competitionI live here in Gypsum and this last winter I hardly saw any good bucks down in the fields just before dark. Even the landowners that run cattle in the hills are seeing fewer bucks.
Two falls ago when I had the ML tag I actually saw more bears than I did buck deer. I saw 5 different bears in one day. This year I'll have a bear tag also in my pocket.
