I'll get out there late Wednesday night. Have a hunter ed class to teach first, but I should have all of Thursday, Friday, Saturday and most of Sunday to hunt. Gonna go high, given the heat and water issues, but am a little uncertain of the water availability. Going to have to be flexible. Not muzzy hunting though just bowhunting. Also have 3 days that I can take at the end of archery season if need be, but let's hope I whack something this weekend instead (do have a bear tag to use too).
Family and I are headed out Friday to unit 12/23 but have ML elk not deer tags. Only deer tag will be my son's but his is an archery tag. He got a bit of buck fever this year and missed a nice 3x3 but still has time to fill the bow tag. Good luck and hope to see some photos after the hunt.
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
