Once in a blue moon you'll see a whitetail in unit 2, but on the overall its considered mule deer country. Its a great unit for trophy elk, mule deer and antelope. Some impressive trophies come out of that area.

Winter is tough on whitetails, that is an accepted fact.
You can help the quality of your herd by providing winter plots - that are not necessarily designed as kill plots.

Come December - at least in our area of the south - most of the mast is gone, all of the crops were long harvested and this green browse can really make the difference for...
