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.
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....
