"Nevada mule deer unit 111 Early"

So I was fortunate enough to draw a 111 Early Muley tag. Now the only problem is I'm not familiar with the area at all. A little back story about me is I'm originally from Colorado and have plenty of experience chasing big alpine bucks. I'm currently active duty in the Marine Corps and stationed about 7 hours away from 111 on the other side of NV. So here in lies my problem, I won't have time to scout all summer like I would typically like to do. The plan is to get out that way a few days before season to scout and hopefully get on some big bucks. My question for the forum, does anyone have any advice on where to go? I'm not looking for anyone to give up their honey hole just a nudge in the right direction would be great. Any help would be great and thank you in advance.

I have hunted this area in the past
What I remember was a lot of road hunters hike back in and get away from the roads I got mine by Taft and McCoy creek

Thanks for the insight. I'm lucky enough to be in great shape so I'll be packed in as far as I can be. Last year I took a CA buck and was packed in 4 miles back from the roads. I don't mind doing it again, especially for quality deer.

How big? I have the late hunt and saw the success % on 4pt + was 67% last year. That's really high!

I have late season rifle tag in 111. Did you get a big one? Heading up scouting this weekend and noted the areas you mentioned.

My buddy and I were able to get into our hunting unit early and scout out some deer. We found 13 bucks in the two days before season. Some dinky, some decent, and one really good buck (on private). Unfortunately these deer were all feeding low and could be spotted by roads, but they were bedding mid slope and we were the ones who knew where the beds were.


So opening morning roles around and we decide that our best bet is to get up by the beds of these bucks and catch them after the road hunter madness has taken place. With the sunshine starting to poke through we spot the bucks grazing and slowly working to the bed. Just like we imagined two vehicles stop at the same time seeing the bachelor group. One buck is shot from the group, and the rest are coming right towards us. The 5 bucks in the group come right in at 200yds and my buddy misses. Now it's a fair time to tell you that this is his first mule deer hunt and he was beating himself up a bit, but I kept him in high spirits and told him we have other bucks to chase. So mid afternoon still on the opener we head out to sit for the evening in an old burn scar where we had seen bucks feeding the night before. Now it's 2pm and we are hiking up the mountain to the one lone tree in the ditch running down the center of the burn. One so we can have shade and two it was fairly close to where the bucks were seen feeding just before dark the night before. We get 10yds from the tree and the buck I harvested (4x4) stands up and looks at me. I wait for him to step out behind the tree and shoot him at 20yds. Once my buck hit the ground my buddy said "hey look another buck" and I quickly replied after looking at it "well shoot him!". So my friend dropped him at 50yds. Our bucks were harvested 100yds apart within 10seconds of each other on opening day at 2pm. The buck my friend shot was a heck of a first buck and I can say that he'll never shoot another one like it in his life. It was a great hunt with a friend and I'm happy to have been there to help him harvest his first mule deer.

Great deer, congrats!! Was the really nice buck (on private land) one of the bucks shot? If not, would you mind private messaging me.
