I'm not absolutely positive we were in the area the biologist suggested, so I'm not all that worried about it. I'll be coming back for a second go round later this season. The one area we got the farthest into was at the Ruby Crest Ranch...just past their gate and sign about 100 yds is forest service land! Bummer!
    Im curious if a guide did that. If so thats not cool.

    Do you guys know what the white areas on Hunting Maps labeled "NonFederal" represent? Is this land open to the public?

    The white area on the hunting gps maps represents private land, I do believe.

    On my gps, it will say either "PRIVATE" or "NONFEDERAL" on the white areas.

    I will be hiking in on the Overland Trail for the last week of season. Anybody been up that trail? Looks like you can access several different bowls from that trail. If my mapping software is correct, it says approximately 3 miles to the top. Any input?

    Is your old man coming with you? Its alot faster to go in a straight line to the lake. Its not an easy 3+ miles. Id guess it to be a bit longer if your on the trail the whole time. Its pretty up there and I cant talk for recently but ive seen that place pounded by outfitters in the past.

    Nope, will be solo. There were a lot of rigs parked at the TH during the first week of season. I like the fact that you can access a lot of country from the top of that trail.

    There's the bowl from Overland, and yes it gets hit by outfitters pretty hard. The outfitters just dump guys off, but from my experience, they don't really get into the steep stuff. The north and west portion hold good bucks. Hunted opening week right there, but harvested my buck on the next bowl north. Hope this helps. Pic was taken 10/08/12.

    Overland Lake is in a bowl up to the left, concealed by the tree. It may not look steep, but looks are deceiving! Like I said before, put a buck to bed in the evening, and wake him at 630am with a well placed shot. Sight in at 200, as you can see!

ID:	6331 South facing slope. The grey dots on the upper 2/3, that's what your looking for.
