"Unit 40 rifle tag November "

I know this is a very common post, I drew November rifle buck tag and spent some time on south mountain this morning, anyone have any advise they would be willing to give? I was not fond of the 65 miles till cell service today but saw lots of good area!!! If anyone is willing to give insight I pay in beer and dinner if located in treasure valley!

Thanks in advance guys!!!

I had the tag last year and ate it. Passed on a 170-175" 4 point (mistake 1) and a 28" 3 point (mistake 2). I did see one giant buck right at dark over by South Mtn but couldn't find him in the morning. Lots of private over there to work around and it blocks a bunch of access. I started hunting about Nov. 8 and counted on the weather (mistake 3). I would look in the Toy Pass area and around the area from Jordan Valley east to the mine. Really thick but quite a few deer. I might also start earlier, like opening day. Unless you get weather, after about 11/18 or so the rutting activity dropped off and bucks were hard to find. By the last day, I counted over 100 does and 2 bucks, both forked horns vs. on 11/10 when I saw a buck for every 10-15 does. Just smaller 4's or 3's. Tons of big 2 points.

That is some absolute amazing info! Thank you very much, did you spend much time around the juniper mtn or triangle area? I was advised to spend some time north of the mine and east of silver city. When did you start scouting, and come November 1 the deer should be up high still and not migrating Down am I correct?

I spent my time from South Mtn north to Delemar and around Toy Pass. The bucks were moving a lot better earlier in spite of the weather. I didn't scout like I should have because I was counting on weather that never came. Don't do that. By November 1 the bucks are starting to look for does but that doesn't mean they are "coming down" or migrating. Just cruising.

Hey did you happen to see any nice Bull Elk in the area. I have a disabled veteran were taking out to get his first big game animal. He drew 1 of 5 disabled veteran tags for the Elk tag. I plan on coming up early and doing some scouting before he arrives and setting up camp so when he gets here he is good to go.

Hey Clubbes, Thanks and I will have to check in that area I'm pretty sure they will be moving all over the place but gives me a good place to start looking for my veteran. Thanks NevadaJames
