The mule deer populations are the lowest I have ever seen them in 50 years since I was 12. Predators and shooting does, winter range disappearing in some areas. I always found bucks and shooters at that. It will be like Utah where we have to draw tags within the next 3 years mark my words. It's nearly hopeless to draw an Antelope tag and Bull Elk hunting is limited. Unless you are young and a beast then good luck.
