congrats on the tag, i havent hunted these unit in a few years but i know in 035 off of bottle creek road along the jacksons mountains there is a gravle pit just past some ranches off the east side of the road that hunters camp in during the deer season hell you can peek over the rim and see antelope. summit lake in the northern part of 034 has some camping but other then that your stuck with dirt turn outs. as far as i know of at least.
Thanks. I appreciate the info. Didn't really want to make 2 trips, but I am gonna try and get away for a scouting trip in July. Tags are hard to come by and 1 chance in 8 years, I better make the most of it.
Well my Nevada Antelope hunt was a success. Spent 3 days scouting and had located about 5 bucks. On opening morning, after 1 blown stalk, I glassed 1 buck go over a ridge trying maintain control of 12 does. After about a 500 yd stalk, with the last 50 yds on my hands and knees, I managed to get within 160 yds. Was able to bring him down with 1 shot.
Overall, I would have to say that this was an awesome hunt. Had a great time and might have to think about a trip to WYO. Thanks again to Broken Arrow for his help and a big thanks to my friend Scott who's help was invaluable.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
