West Desert Vernon rifle mule deer HELP

I finally drew a Vernon rifle tag. I'm in the USCG and I don't know how much time I will have to scout. If anyone has any info they would like to share it would be much appreciated.

Years ago before it was a LE

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.
