Idaho unit 54

So, my Father-in-law, brother-in-law and myself all drew for Idaho unit 54 (the South Hils). Our plans are to set our base camp at Porcupine and set out on foot from there on a daily basis. We do not have any 4-wheelers/horses or anything like that. Looks like are best chance is the final week of the season with an occasional weekend or day trip prior to that. Does anybody have any other ideas for the South Hills area? We still have plenty of time to scout other areas.

Porcupine springs has plenty of deer usually so you shouldn't have any problem. If you run into too many people in that area I really like to hunt lower in the cliffs and foot hills. No people, bigger bucks. The last couple weeks are usually the best anyways because of cooler weather and pre rut behavior. I drew that tag this year too. Good luck

Thanks for the input. Do you think that the fires are going to cause a problem for this season?

We actually ended up right near there for our hunt this year. We camped and hunted just past the Shoshone wildlife pond. My father-in-law and brother-in-law both harvested bucks this year, but all I saw were doe.
