    Steens mountain buck tag

    I drew a buck tag here. Anyone ever hunted in this unit or have knowledge of the current unit status. Will start scouting in August but I don't know much about the unit, other than my paper research.

    Check with odfw in burns/hines. They're real helpful. Also stop in and get access maps. Odfw bought un hunting rights on a pile of ranch ground

    Sounds good. Have you much experience in the Steens and or know about the current herd status/trophy trend?

    The Little Indian drainage is worth a look.

    Been several years since i have hunted it but used to go all the time in the hayday of the steens mt. I have taken a few 165-175" class deer from there. My largest was around 1990 or so a 185" 4x5 really trophy deer used to inhabbit those mt's! The jeans are still there to a point. last time i hunted was around 12 years ago. And we couldn't even find a mature buck... But two years ago a freind had a tag and the got some good weather(snowed a tad) he came back on the 4th day with a nice heavy horned 25" wide inside 5x5 buck. He was seeing decent deer every day.

    Try calling the BLM Office in Hines, I have a buddy that works that area, one of the Range Cons might have some good info.

    I drew the rifle tag and will be packing into the wilderness area portion of the unit (no mv's allowed portion).
