I would rate the hunt between

I would rate the hunt between a 7-8. I saw deer every day and obviously shot a nice buck. The only reason I didn't give the hunt a 10 is because the terrain was rugged and elevation was high. It is definitely not for the average hunter. I took a friend up the week before the season opener and he couldn't deal with the elevation and steep inclines. He had to hike back down and drive home.

Although, that is why they call it High Country hunting and that's what I was looking for.
