Well, after waiting six years to get a draw it finally happened. Sadly, I bumped just one forky with no chance to get a shot. Spent a whole week up there on the opening week and only managed to see does. Just curious if anybody else had success up there. None of the hunters I encountered were having any luck. Looks like I'll be looking for a new recipe for tag-soup.

Sorry to hear you didn’t see many but the lone buck. I’d consider yourself lucky that you were able to spend a week in the high country! Put your other tag to good use!

Big game hunter!

My friend got a forkie during archery.  He said he had never seen so few deer and that they were really spread out...

What elevation were you hunting? Some buddies bagged a couple deer but they were up high backpacking.

I hunted X-9A for a week with brother and nephew after finally getting a tag after waiting six long years.  Hunted at elevations ranging from 7500 feet to 12,000 feet.  Tracked a buck (3x3) which I saw around 1250 yards away for several miles until it disappeared up above an incline greater than 45 degrees into high country.  Saw a 4x4 several miles away in high country, tried to get the buck while scoping continually, he went even higher.  Lots of does throughout area, bucks limited.  According to some locals the snow fall last year probably took a toll on the deer population.  Only wish I had more time to hunt area.  Think they were in higher elevations.  Had fun though.  As they say " a bad day hunting is better than a good day at work!"
