Mule Deer

JC , It seems the higher the preference points the higher the expectations. 17 points is a bunch of points and I think you can do just as well in a unit that takes less. If it were me, I would hunt a unit with a 4th season or one that has an early season, leaning heavily on the 4th season hunts. With a rutt hunt you do not always need a bunch of weather. Find the doe's and your in business!

201

If you have good intel I would use it. 201 has 100% success in the 3rd rifle last year. Just no way of telling the quality. 2 non res will draw. You have a  great chance unless someone lurking jumps you or have the same point total. Unless it is a Pig, do not shoot the first one you see! Make sure to post some pic's on here if you draw . Even if you do not score, pic's of your hunt are always appreciated. Yes, I live here. 201 is far away from me though!

JC, I hunted unti 201 in 2nd

JC, I hunted unti 201 in 2nd season 2 years ago.  There are lots of deer and many good bucks.  The horns are also nice and dark on most of the mature bucks--very beautiful.  The hunting pressure is low, the roads are rough on the truck, and there is a ton of public land.  You'd have a great hunt there.  However, I would have to say I expected to see more "big" bucks.

Anyway, if you decide to go for unit 201 I'd be happy to send a PM with recommendations on where we saw the best (and most) deer while we were there.

Can't help you with unit 44.
