Just seeing if anyone has any experience at all with this unit. Going to be hunting Simpson Ridge HMA. First goat hunt ever, taking my dad out from ND for his first goat as well. I’ve been calling biologists and talked with some locals but figured can’t hurt to post here.

Starting to realize they may be herded up by the time we go, Oct 14-18th and realizing snow or rain will shut down ranch roads in the HMA. Just looking to get a buck to represent the area for the freezer, not trophy hunting. Feel free to pm if you have any pointers or something a guy should be aware of.

Thanks in advance

I've hunted that hma many times but not in the last 8 years. I also went a month earlier.
At that time pressure was pretty heavy and the antelope pushed hard. But they are scattered pretty evenly throughout the area.
Never hunted more than 2 days to fill 3 buck and 3 doe tags. Lots of space away from the roads you can glass to. Never saw anyone else walking.
Unless things have changed or the later time makes a difference you'll do just fine.
Did seem to see more on the west side.

Tried to send a PM as well last week but it wouldn't work either. Hope you had a good hunt.
