    Time to think again of which deer unit

    It's time to try to fiqure where to put in for Nevada deer again. Again I have 12 Non-resident points and I'm trying to shoot a 175+ buck, but I need a tag first. Any good suggestions where to put in for would really be appreciated.

    That's a long time! Archery? Rifle, muzzleloader? What part of the state?

    True that is a great trophy area, I think better if he's archery hunting though.

    There is 200"+ potential there. I've seem many in the 180"-190". The odds are low so I don't put in for that area much.

    I've been putting in for 231 muzzleloader and rifle, 221 late. Last year I even put in a 5th choice 131 muzzleloader thinking with 11 points I'd for sure draw that, but my luck hasn't been very good. Years ago I hunted the ruby's during the muzzleloader hunt. It was a fun hunt, but I never seen a great buck, lots of nice ones. I had a unit 7 muzzleloader tag once, and after scouting a bunch with great luck, the sheep moved in. I've never seen anything like it, there was thousands of sheep, and the deer we had scouted where gone, it was a tough hunt, but we had a good time.

    I am sitting on 19 non-resident deer points and am willing to wait another 10 years if I have to. I have been applying for only one area the past few years. I have a 183 buck from off the Sheldon (Unit 33) from back in the day, and I'd like to top that with a 190+ buck. Any recommendations? What units are regularly producing that quality of bucks?
