"Bear Wallow Wilderness vs Blue Range Primative"

If you had 9 days at the end of August, a bow, a backpack and a OTC tag for deer which one would you hunt?

Thanks
-Travis

How hardcore are You? The blue wilderness area is some of the most rugged remote stuff in az. There are a lot of really good bucks down there though. I don't know about deer quality in the bear wallow wilderness but I do know it's not quite as rough and steep as the blue. Either one will also have mule deer and some great coues deer as well if you are into coues.

I don't know how hardcore I am. I guess I'll find out soon enough. But I am not concerned about my fitness if that is what you mean. I don't need a trophy buck (although that would be awesome!!!). Just want the best shot at filling my tag. I am from Michigan, in the NAVY and stationed in California. I plan on hunting AZ as much as possible, I am really happy to be in the west and to be within driving distance of so much awesome stuff. Full disclosure: I have never seen unit 27, except for with google earth. Thank you for responding.

Either one is pretty rugged. 27 is probably the roughest unit in az. Just be in good shape and you'll be fine.

Yes, unit 27 is a rough unit but that just means if you get a couple miles from road you can hunt without others screwing up your hunt. I've had best luck getting on top of ridges and points and spending mega time glassing.....if you can do this and be patient you will find some quality bucks......
Good luck and post a pic....I will be there end of October chasing whitetales......

I would hunt the burn in Bear Wallow. The success rate in unit 1 last year for mule deer was quite high. Seems like the deer are doing great in there.

the blue is the type of rough terrain that if you commit to going in, you can only usually do it once every other day or two. unless you stay in there for a couple of three days then come back out. (my feet hurt already just thinking of that place) I'm not trying to steer you away but I'd go to the wallow. you have just as good of a chance either place.
good luck

For Mulies, the Blue. Easier to spend a few days bivy than to climb out everyday. Can be a challenge with the rain/flooding. Good glass and spotting scope will save you some hiking. Many places take climbing on all fours to get out of if you get off the trails. It will be memorable regardless of the outcome.
