Late Aug OTC ideas?
After striking out on all my draw applications, I'm looking for a backup option for mule deer. The big constraint is that I only have Aug 25-30 available to hunt, which rules out CO and several other states.
My current ideas are AZ otc deer somewhere or trying to snag a leftover in NV. Or, I might end up on a UT spike/cow hunt in one of the LE bull units. Ideally I'd like to have a deer tag, but elk is an option too.
Any thoughts on these ideas, or is there anywhere/anything I'm missing?
AZ OTC is prob ur best bet. Nevada leftover's in the Ruby's may be an option but you will have to work extremely hard or hire a packer and still kick your own ass.
You might consider a antelope tag if you don't find anything on deer or elk.
I have done the Ruby's hunt before, but trying to decide if I'd like to cover some new territory.
I would consider an antelope tag too, but I haven't found anything on public land. I do not want a guided hunt, but would consider a trespass fee if the price was right.
Over on the Utah page I posted the link for the Leftover tags ect and they go on sale first come------>
If anyone still needs a tag or any interest in any of those tags.
Good luck, Robb
