"Mule Deer- Soda Springs unit 75/76"

Hi Folks,

I am chomping at the bit to go on my first Mule Deer hunt in SE Idaho in a few weeks! After doing a lot of research I ultimately settled on unit 75/76 and found a small cabin rental south of Soda Springs.

Curious to hear if any hunters have been out yet in the area? I know the area was hit hard last winter and looks like some colder/rainy temps going on now. Is that enough to push the deer down to lower elevations?

Im hunting opening week. but will have two full days of scouting before the Tuesday opener. I plan to get up high with my spotting scope and glass...and look for thick cover area that deer may get pushed to by all the pressure (thats what I often do for whitetails back east).

If anyone is willing, Id love other advice on how to scout or make the best use of our hunt. Wishing everyone luck this season!

-Excited first time Mule Deer hunter.

Sounds like you have a solid plan. You'll find deer that's for sure.

I have been in 76 chasing moose a few weekends and will be back up the first week of Oct. I have not seen big numbers but a few deer around. I would agree with huntin50 that 75 is probably holding more deer currently. I'll let you know what we see in the next couple weeks. Good luck!!!

76/75 both had record snow and cold temp this past winter. Deer numbers have been reduced a lot this season. There are still deer around but just not like it used to be. Good Luck to you!
I was planning on hunting this unit this year ( my old stomping grounds was born and raised in soda) I opted to purchase the tag and not hunt it and hopefully it can bounce back quickly. The last really bad winter took nearly 10 years to recoup the population. Both unit are huge so there is plenty of areas still holding good mature bucks. Just have to get out and give her hell.
