Excited and nervous to see new country and hunt with my oldest boy. He's 10 yrs old and this will be his first hunt out west. Our DIY, backpack (if necessary) hunt will be over Thanksgiving. It was suggested by one that we stay south and near water. Will the deer still be in the hills or down in the sage flats that time of year? I don't care if we kill a big one. Just want this to be a fun experience that we can share together many more times in the future. If you have any suggestions on what we should expect from a deer density standpoint, deer patterns that time of year, etc, I would welcome your input.
