I know I know... Lots of 22" 140-150 bucks, and not many big boys. But, If you are wanting to hunt a 190+ buck on the Book Cliffs, what would be the best hunt to find a big boy? archery or South rifle?
Do you have a better chance finding that type of buck scouting the summer and archery?

I saw one buck on my muzzy hunt a few years ago that was near 190" 28" wide 4x4 with big forks great fronts had a big inline off a fork and a sticker off the other side. This was in the roadless section.

I personally prefer the archery hunt because the bulk of deer are congregated up higher and the big bucks are still in summer routines and haven't been bumped too much. I have been on at least 5 archery hunts with tag holders & have always seen a couple trophy bucks that were killable (actually killing them is a whole different ballgame 😀)

This really depends on the individual hunter and circumstances. If you're a proficient archery hunter, in great shape, with lots of time available to scout during the summer, then archery is your better option. If you're a guy that needs to hunt closer to the truck, not real good with running the hills and getting in close, or have no time to scout then the rifle is your better option.
I pretty well live on the mountain year round. Over the course of the summer I usually turn up 3-4 190"+ bucks, during the nine day rifle I might find 1. With an average client I would have better odds of getting that buck killed on the rifle hunt than any of the 3 or 4 on the archery. You dont have to impress anyone with your abilities, just be honest with yourself of what you can realistically do. If you choose to go guided, be honest with your guide, let them know your limitations so they can provide you the best chance for you.

Thanks y'all for the replies. I definitely like the sounds of archery, but have never been on the unit during.
My thoughts are the bigger bucks are easier to find in the summer, archery. But a little harder to kill. That's fine with me. I don't need a guarantee, just want to have a good time and hope to get lucky.

Best have a high dollar pair of Bino if you don't want to go blind.
He does wear a extra small loin cloth.
