Years ago before it was a LE unit we used to hunt it but we always hunted low in the sagebrush. Now it can be a finicky unit. One year it will be good and the next is a toss up. The big thing is to get into it off of the roads and do a lot of glassing. For the lower sagebrugh you can get up on a hill and glass into it. Don't look for the deer itself but for the tips of the antlers sticking up above it.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
