    If that road kill buck was the same one i got a pic of he's definitely a shooter, but bucks like that arent standing behind every juniper...
    I heard rumor he was hit on 395 but a little south of your unit.

    6x8? Not sure exactly where it was picked up but I know one of the guys on that road crew.

    Again it's not my first hunt I understand that you don't just get out of the truck walk 100 yards sit down and they all run to you.

    But I have hunted the unit enough (pre stupid point system) to know how to get around and find deer but live at enough away it's just not feasible to spend a week scouting. That's all no big. If no one has anything to offer nothing lost. Is this year better than past years have been? Is there any significant population increase due to the fire in x5b last year? That's all I am looking for. Maybe someone local as some insight. The BLM biologist was not much help

    Honestly if I dd see that road kill buck he would of had to die of a heart attack cause I doubt I could have held still long enough to shoot straight he was a dandy

    I have talked to several locals and no one knows of this road kill buck. I don't think it from around there but who knows.

    I saw a pic of the road kill buck, he was a toad! Shame he went to waste. There were numerous bucks in the truck as I recall. From memory, he was a 180 class buck. Heavy, wide, great main beam length, deep forks, he had it all. The only bad thing he had? Judgment
