    Hey Jim, I wouldn't waste your points on 192. There is some good bucks that get taken out of there but the forest service closes all the roads to the top of the mountain during hunting season. Access is limited up high. I mean limited.

    In my experience limited motorized access = better hunting.

    Amen bb!. This particular unit goes into the valley which is mostly private and on top is public an private. Being a late season hunt in an are that doesn't have as good of a record as others its not worth it with that many points. On top of that, just because they close the roads doesn't mean people dont drive in there. That happened to me a few years ago, I was a few miles deep into a wilderness with a closed access road and here comes a Chevy blazer tootling along. I am positive it happens there too because there are alot of private roads going to mansions up there. But yes, limited access = better hunting fo sho.

    DrH,

    I had no doubt you had the skinny on the area. I don't know jack about it. It just sounded like there could be an opportunity in a place like that for somebody with some fresh legs.

    "tootling" That's awesome.

    Dr is rite. It's pretty crappy down that far but the next No units are the bomb! And the roads are always closed to traffic= good bucks IMO
