NV Mule Dere Unit 171-173

Question Just wondering if any of you would share any info on the area.  Having grown up in Wisconsin, I've hunted Whitetails my whole life so mule deer hunting is a bit foreign to me.  I am somewhat familiar with 111 as I drew there 4 years ago (took a nice 4x5) and again this year.  The problem is NDOW in there infinite wisdom has drawn my 15yo son into 171-173 on a youth tag.  I am planning to get him out for the muzzle loader season in hopes of getting him an early kill and in the process salvaging my own hunt, (if he doesnt then of course I will give up my own hunt for his). 

I have only been able to make it to the area for scouting once (2 mornings and 1 evening) focusing on the San Juan Creek area.  All I saw the entire trip including the trip up from Vegas through the south end of the range was a herd of Elk.

Any info you have on the area will be greatly appreciated, Just trying to help this young new hunter have a memorable and enjoyable first hunt.

Checking that area out on

Checking that area out on google earth, just hate going in blind. Guess every place is a mystery until the first time you hunt it.
