It took me 13 days of hunting and I finnaly closed the deal on this nice 4-point. Had a great hunt with my family and friends, saw a ton of deer and a few really great bucks that managed to get away. Finally on day 13 I was in the right place at the right time and this guy gave me a 30 yard quartering away shot!

Bowhunt,

I would probobly give this hunt a 7 out of 10. The things keeping it form being a 10 would be the genetics of the heard out there first and foremost. So many mature deer that if they only had good genes would be great bucks. The other would be the country, its very difficult contry to bowhunt between the steep loose rock and the dead vegitiation its noisy country. Its also very hot which makes it tought to hunt after about 10:00 am.

I really enjoyed my time out there I feel like I gave it all I could, I scouted hard this summer learning the country, saw some great bucks, and ended up with a nice buck overall I am happy and would like to hunt it again someday.

If I were to have to choose between archery and rifle I would go archery. 36 tags or something out there for archery seemed plenty crowded I can't imagine 100+. Also like always as soon as the bucks started rubbing they started dropping off The top and becoming much less visible. I can see how rifle could be tough out there!

Congrats!!! I archry hunted the Vernon unit back in 2005. Was one the best hunts I've been on and did not even harvest a deer. Saw lots of bucks with a few dandys. Only problem I had donw there was all the rattle snakes. I believe I hunted around 15 days off and on and ran into 8 rattlers. I hate snakes!!!

There are definatly rattlers out there, we got lucky in that department I spent a total of about 30 days on the mtn this summer between scouting and hunting and only ran into one, but that was one more then I ever care to see.

Your right about it being a fun hunt though you see lots of bucks and get in one or two stalks a day its a good time I would like to do again some day.
