I am West River the deer population is doing ok considering two real harsh winters in a row. The antelope have took a hit big time. You can drive 100 miles in country that use to have tons of antelope and not see a single one.
For deer it seems antler growth this year has been great. If you can find an older age class buck its going to be sporting some good headgear. Its been a real nice summer with alot of moisture and not to hot for the most part.
I have an antelope tag for Jackson County. It's the double doe tag. I'm taking my 7 year old son on his first western hunting trip, so I didn't put in for a buck tag. Just something to wet his appetite. Are you on private or public ground? I've seen some good muley bucks in Fall River county. I just don't have the luxury to take any scouting trips out there.
