Idaho Owyhee deer hunts

Anybody heard the plan IDFG has for the Owyhee untits (40 & 42) Last year they cut the season length in half and of course it is still a 2 point only hunt. There have been rumors that they would open it back up as an "any buck" hunt. Just wondered if anyone had the skinny on this area.

I have not heard anything on those two units. However they were not in the group of units that had tag cuts this year.

Elk Hunts Up; Deer Hunts Down

When they put that restriction on the Owyhee area it was supposed to be a 5 year program. I guess the IDF&G lost count. I understand that if anything they will lift the restriction for archery only, like the Magic Mountain area, but not this or next year. Or so go's the rumor mill...

I guess an archery season would be better than nothing..... I'd love to see them have a late hunt for archery down there. I know that the deer populations are very high in the areas that I hunt. It's tough seeing all those big bucks and only getting to shoot the 2 pointers....
