Was with a guy that had a 67 deer tag, traded out this morning on a 150 clas 4 point, saw over 250 bucks, only three deer in this age class. Spent 4 total days there. Seen three bulls, one in the 330 range. Took 21 points to draw.

I don't have permission to post his picture but Here is the deer, it was a great time. Met some interesting dudes for sure hope with that many average and smaller bucks running around that the unit has an uptick in quality, the best deer that we saw were not with does and alone pretty high up. This guy was in a more recoverable spot for a 65 year old guy.

250 bucks in 4 days. Is the zero a typo?

No, we worked our asses off.. from rock creek on the west side to rock creek on the east side. Between 66 and 67 were the most bucks, huntsmans flat had two large bachelor groups. North of Iron Hill had the most bucks for the area. South of Honey Badger mine has the best buck left, big 4x3, larger than the one we killed. Also 100 head of cow elk and a couple bulls. Long park road had quite a few bucks. Couple other roads and areas also.

Congrats. Good genes, probably a 2.5 or 3.5 year old?

250 bucks is a ton! It’s also absurd that you didn’t see multiple deer over 180” in that unit, out of the 250 you saw.
If I looked at 250 bucks in just about any unit in Colorado, better be seeing a couple in that class. Just saying, basin is hugely overrated and not worth the points.

I’ve heard a few reports of a couple more decent bucks running does. I’ll be out Thursday for a last hoorah.
Good luck 👍
