1. The tag is good from August 10th - September 9th. My schedule is pretty flexible. I will be hunting solo in the wilderness areas in Unit 111. I've never had a chance to hunt that early. Should I plan to hunt the 1st couple of weeks of the season, or does the hunting pressure get lower as the season progresses?
2. On the Nevada web-site, they mention the publication that shows the location of the wildlife guzzlers. Is that info needed for an early mule deer hunt? My thoughts are that it wouldn't be that helpful in the high country. Needed or not?
3. There appear to be some decent sized creeks in wilderness. From what I've read, I know it's been pretty dry even for NV standards, could I expect to find my drinking water in the larger creeks during August and September?
I live 26 hours away (long solo drive) so I'll be doing all my scouting on-line and on the phone. I did some research prior to applying and have some several areas of interest that I've marked in Google Earth. I'm hoping to get my Forest Service maps in the mail in the next couple of days to better identify all of the possible access points. If anyone has any general information about the area that might help with my scouting, I would be very appreciative. Thanks in advance for any feedback.
I have never hunted Nevada but I’m sure normal tactics apply. Glass at first light, watch the buck bed, wait for the wind to be right, stalk in (usually from above) wait for the buck to stand, then kill it!
