Hope for the snow line to drop down low, so they get out into the sage brush flats. If the snow line stays up, the deer will stay in the area below snow, but above the low country...and that area can be thick and steep. It is also pretty much all wilderness area between house rock/buffalo ranch and the top, so be prepared hike in/out after 'em.
The last time I had a tag in that area, the snow line stayed high. I concentrated my efforts around Saddle Mountain area and found some deer.
And just an FYI, there are usually a hand full of lion hunters in there that time of year working the area pretty hard with dogs and horses.
No problem...I don't want to think that lion hunters will ruin you hunt or anything, just be aware, that if it snows you will see some down in the low country. I can't say this holds true for everyone, but each time I've hunted the area and I saw lion camps (dogs are a tell tale sign) I've stopped by and talked to them about the particular areas I was going to hunt the next day...all have seemed to know the value of a deer tag in the area and were more than willing to alter their approach if it involved where I wanted to go...a little curtosey goes a long way...again, good luck.
I just got back from my elk trip to Colorado and must say that I learned quite a bit about hiking in that one trip. I researched all I could on the internet and thought I was prepared going out. For the most part I was but I want to pass on a few major things I learned that helped me drastically!
1. Pack light. I know this may sound like common sense but believe me. After reading everyone's advice on what you need to pack, chances are your pack will end up weighing more...
