HUNTING THE BOOK CLIFFS

I have had great luck and was finally able to draw a Muzzleloader Bookcliffs Deer tag. Has anyone previously hunted that area or spent alot of time there? I have been there twice and am wondering if anyone is willing to share some good info?

Thanks in advance

I've spent some time there in the southern part of the unit. I've been there a few times photographing bucks, got some good ones too. (So you're the one who got my tag? )One 30 incher in the group. I didn't look at the proc, when is your hunt?

The hunt is Sept 29-Oct 7 MuzzleLoader. I went down this past Saturday again and saw about 20 bucks in the middle of the afternoon with several ones already at or past ear width. Big smile

Sounds like you're already on the deer. There are a lot of nice bucks in that unit, you should have no problems getting a 28" buck. That 30" plateau may be a little harder though. What are you after?

I have already shot a couple of bucks in the 26"-28" range and have missed a couple of 30" Cry bucks with the muzzleloader. I would love another 28" but the goal is 30". I am a die hard hiker hunter and get as far away from the road as possible. So hopefully this will help. Where did you go on the cliffs?
