anyone seeing any big bucks in unit 40 so far this year? I got the late tag and haven't seen much. The reports I'm hearing from elk and two point hunters isn't sounding too good either..

Toy pass, antelope ridge and reynolds creek. Haven't seen much of what I thought I would see. I know it's early but haven't heard anything good yet from other hunters either.

I trap & hunt yotes all over 40 & have for over 20 years the deer population in this unit along with 41 & 42 is Pathetic !!! 10 years back we would see on the average around a 1000 deer a day while checking traps from Oct thru Feb, last 3 years we are lucky to see 100 . I ran into the Fish TARTS down there 3 years ago trying to net & tag deer for their survey. I asked what they were trying to figure out !!!! WAIT FOR IT !!!! they were trying to determine what was causing the reduction in deer #s !!!!! I told them to recommend doing away with the Open forkie season for starters. NOW here is what they told me last year after having 2 years of research info THEIR FINAL RULING FOR THE LOSS OF ANIMALS IN UNIT 40 WAS DUE TO ...... STRESS ON THE DOES !!! And that is NO BULL $HIT !!!!

I know unit 40 has wolves, I seen a lone black female a couple years back when I had the tag. I probably won't be lucky enough to ever draw the tag again, thats why I help others.

2pt hunt has been around forever. 8yrs ago was prime. Doesn’t add up.

Seems that fire did not help. I chukar hunt the west side, and it’s hardly grown back.
