Anyone Know about LT Murray

Anyone know what's going on in that area. I ended up hunting whitetail this year, but I typically hunt in the LT Murray area for Mule Deer each year. I poked around for a day this year and found absolutely no deer. I didn't even see any hunters. Anyone know what's up?

Anyone Know about LT Murray

Maybe you didn't hear...

Wildlife closed that area up tight this year to hunting because of a bad outbreak of chronic spoofiform Encephalopathy.

No deer .

No hunters.

Did you see any signs indicating the closure?

Hey, I am just kidding...sounded pretty spooky though....no deer or hunters...maybe all the guys got their deer, and didn't leave any for you. (?)

Dude

You totally had me going!

I was there last year at different points throughout the entire season and one of the things I noted was that there were a lot of hunters... throughout the whole season. I aslo saw at least 20 deer everytime I went out. I just didn't know if there was a hard winter or if hunting pressure had increased enough to kind scare the deer out of there for a couple weeks or what.

Ya, I know the feeling. We had prepped and scouted like normal, but the big bucks were in hiding during our hunt in the entiat. Oh well, still have a bunch of deer and elk and bear in the freezer...

I worked a lot last summer in that area, mainly around the Joe Watt Canyon, and Robinson CAnyon areas. There was a decent amount of winter kills that i noticed as i came across them in the summer months. I only saw one legal buck the entire summer up there, but that doesn't mean they're not in there. That area usually does get hunted very hard, curious that you didn't come across any other hunters.
