Nevada Big Game Unit 141 - posted 3 weeks ago

The Nevada department of wildlife does a great job with tracking data on all of their big game herds. You can find info on their site about harvest numbers in each individual unit by point class and also unit descriptions. I copied the description for the areas you drew below. Sounds like you guys might want to give Roberts mountain a thought.

"RECOMMENDED HUNTING AREAS FOR MULE DEER: The majority of the deer are
concentrated in the Diamond Range, unit 144. Hunters should concentrate at mid to upper
elevations early in the season. The Diamond Peak area and the north end of the Diamond
Range have steep rugged terrain with few roads offering hunters some rugged country to
hike or use horses. Roberts Mountain, unit 143, has a smaller population but good hunting
early in the season. The Cortez Range has a low-density deer herd living on a near
treeless mountain with the majority of habitat dominated by big sagebrush. The Fish Creek
Range has small resident deer populations with hunting improving late in October as deer
migrate into this unit."

Nevada Big Game Unit 141 - posted 3 weeks ago

@Porter P. The "best" unit in the area is 144. That being said the Diamonds are very steep/vertical and honestly look pretty intimidating, (also not a lot of good roads that run all the way up). There are A LOT of mule deer around there though this year, when I was up there a few weeks ago I saw 8 of them around some of the peaks and even 5-6 on the desert floor. If you try to hunt another unit like 141 there will be much less mule deer per sq mile, but from what I know the cortez range has great glassing country/ road access. As far as fishing goes there are some reservoirs on the east side of the Diamonds accessible from road 892. The road on the west side, Co Rd 101, is public to my knowledge as well. Hope that helps.

Will Wyoming wind projects hurt pronghorn? - posted 1 month ago

"intact sage brush ecosystem", I'm wondering on the possible effects to sage grouse. They'd move forward with projects that affect pronghorn and mule deer, but anything that touches sage grouse these days seems to get limited or shut down.

Wyoming Big Game Deer Unit 122 - posted 1 month ago

Does anyone know why Wyoming's Game and Fish site now lists this unit with the "difficult public access" * for general season deer? As far as I remember that wasn't there when I looked at the unit before on their site. Anyone know of Regulation changes or maybe a typo?
