'morning All,

I had a pretty unique opportunity to do some photo/scouting for 3 fellow bowhunters as 1 drew bow Antelope, another 1 drew bow Muley and the 3rd drew bow Elk/Bull with in this 111-113 unit block in Nevada.

I've drawn 3 Muley tags and 1 Antelope tag over the years in this unit block, so I kinda had a good idea of where to go for each species.

I got to cover a lot of ground in my RZR2 and some miles on my boots.

Antelope, Muleys, Elk, Wild Horses and Snakes sighted and enjoyed.

Thanks for taking the time to view this thread fella's!

I got off I-80 in Wendover to catch the short-cut 93A Route instead of going all the way to Wells.

I did things a little different on this trip as I wanted to start @ the north end of 112 before towing the last 79 miles down to Ely and my lodging, so change out of my Pretty Boy traveling cloth's and into my dust and thunderstorm cloth's for the RZR2 ride.

Looking forward to the rest Robb, that unit cluster is definitely on my radar for deer, and if I run across some tremendous luck, elk.

The biggest challenge I had was that the Antelope tag holder was interested in the Tippett/Antelope Valley area which is in the North East of these Units and the Muly tag holder was more interested in the Cleve Creek area which is in the very most southern part of the units.

Lot's of ground to cover between those 2 area's.

Toss in the Bull Elk tag holder was interested in the Duck Creek area.....

Kind of a nice quaint little lake and campground in this Small acreage Cave Lake State Park.

Wouldn't be a bad basecamp to hunt out of for Muleys and Bulls although I never personally have over the years of hunting in these block of units.

That wraps up this Photo/Scouting trip.

Of course I shared more with the tag holders than the internet crowd but it's always enjoyable to Pay it Forward type deal.

Thanks again for taking the time to view.

You are welcome

Man, I sure have answered a lot of questions about these units, I never realized how popular they have become over the years.

Be safe out there, Robb
