Had friends go and experience the same...they did harvest a small 4x4 from what I heard, could be the same group?Too much time spent getting unstuck is what I heard. Everyone hunting from main access roads . Snow up to the knees of guys trying to get away from the roads

Smart kid!Talked my son into this on his last youth year and he drew it. Between getting a late start due to my Dads Sheep and Daughters Bull tag and then all the weather that hit, he wasn’t too impressed or excited and was not concerned about a trophy! Felt bad as I knew this tag could be good. Went the last weekend of Muzzleloader season and the roads were just bad enough to keep us out of where we’ve previously had success. Seen a handful of small bucks off main road was all. Went back on Dec 20 for rifle and was getting into a fair amount of Deer and sign but the roads were still trash! He decided he just wanted to harvest and shot the first one he could and took a meat buck and we went home. Sure wish we could have got around better and wish he would have held out longer but I’ve never told my kids what they can and can’t shoot! Tough year up there!
Sounds fun did you see any good bulls?I took a 3x4 on the last evening of my muzzleloader hunt. Beautiful country, but not impressed with quality for being a trophy unit. I did not hunt the whole season as we needed to get the 5th wheel safely back home by beating a storm. Saw plenty of elk as well. We did get to experience all elements of weather. We covered a lot of ground by vehicle and glassed miles of country with 2 BTX's. As mentioned above, lots of smaller bucks and 2x4's.
Yes, we saw several good bulls from a distance. We didn't bother getting in real close to look them over as we were after mulies and didn't want to bump them as there were elk hunters in the area.Sounds fun did you see any good bulls?
Tell ‘em how you really feel Mark😎Year after year the same story from this “trophy” unit. It does make me laugh running into a disappointed first timer out there tho. I had a cow tag this year and farted around out there a few days. Plenty of 140’s and 2x4’s to be had. Sadly, ppl would rather eat that tag than kill a poor genetic POS 2x4 on their way out. So those bucks keep breeding and that genetic gets more prevalent.
Agree 100%081 is the most overrated tag in Nevada. Followed by 231.
Then add Pilot Mt.
Don’t forget 221, just across the highway081 is the most overrated tag in Nevada. Followed by 231.
