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.

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.

The set up is for two people when the crops are usually off and the only cover left is...
