I have always had good success north of Lake Alpine above 8000ft, but this year I haven't even seen a doe much less a buck. Does anybody know if the deer moved down early this year? I am going to backpack hunt Summit Level Ridge this week and hope that there is some movement at lower elevation. It is awfully dry this year and I am hoping the deer are moving down to the Little Mokelume River. Any news would be great.

Thanks
