Hi all, new to the forum, but old to the coues whitetail forum. Pulled a unit 33 early November (thought I'd try muley this time)
I've hunted 33 before, but only for whitetail, and tended to focus on the northern/eastern part of the Catalina Mountains around Saddlebrook and Peppersauce Canyon (N/W side).
Pretty much, all I've seen have been whitetail in the unit, as that's where I was hunting and looking (higher elevations). I've always done the first rifle hunt, and the deer scatter after day 2 of the hunt. This hunt is a week after 650 of my fellow hunters have been all over the unit chasing/taking coues.
Any general pointing beyond what the G&F department website so I can start scouting would be appreciated. My initial thoughts on on the fingers on the west side of the Catalina mountains?
I've heard Redington pass area, but that also there are hunters crawling over themselves and trying not to get hit by all the ATV's out on weekends.
I just broke in my second pair of boots last season, so I'm ready to wear my new pair out.
