    This is the area I hunted a lot when I was a kid, shot my first 3 bucks there. I have always hunted exactly how IKIC said, Solid Silver and Mullinix. It is beautiful country but never took anything real big out plus it gets hit pretty hard. I have seen pictures of big bucks taken up higher around Hinkey Summit from guys who I think packed in. There was a big fire up there last summer and I think I heard it burned up a lot of the east side close to Paradise including Mullinix. Don't quote me on exactly where it burned but I was in Winnemucca when it was burning and it looked like a doozie.

    I hunted this area back in 06 with three other guys and did very well, took til this year to draw it again.

    I hope you have as good of a time as last time. I'm surprised it took that long to draw a yellow chip unit, I may have to re-think my application next year and go for a muzzy or archery hunt. I am hoping to hunt Nevada before I am 50, which is only 7 years away.

    Hunted it in 2010 and fought the fog for 3 days

    Shot a dink out of spite. Looking back I would do somethings different but it can be a fustrating hunt for sure.

    Unit 51

    I've hunted this numerous times with bow....started back in the early 90s when it was part of the general state wide tag and last hunted it in 2010. The easy areas to get to are really over run by the crowds now days since they hand out so many tags. In the beginning I could hunt over a herd of 20 bucks, some of them quite large, within a mile of Hinckey Summit. This is no longer the case.

    Still plenty of deer in the Wilderness and some of the outlying areas away from the Paradise Valley/Hinckey Summit/Lye Creek/Windy Pass corridor. This corridor will get 80% of the pressure. That includes Mullineaux and Solid Silver that have been discussed. A lot of big bucks summer away from the main range at about 7000ft in some of the smaller hills and highlands. Try up north near O'dell Mtn or near Klondike. Big country. A pack into the wilderness would do the trick too.
