    Take your kid up to Unit 3/301 in 2nd or 3rd rifle. You will see lots of deer just driving around anywhere west of Rt. 13. Not real big whoppers but he might come out of there with an 18 inch 4x4. Pretty easy hunt. Just drive around, spot one, get out of the truck, and shoot.

    Also Unit 13 3rd rifle is a good bet. A little cliff walking is in order but you'll get a buck. Unit 13 has no whoppers. And 18 incher in that unit would be a trophy as well.

    The other problem with 471 is its a small unit and you really dont have many options like most units do. If I remember right these are of 471.

    Thanks for the replies.....the game plan has changed a little.

    We are putting in for 1st Rifle elk in 54 which has good draw odds.

    We will be hunting 3rd rifle in 191 with a friend that has access to private and public.

    So if anyone is willing to share some opinions to confirm my game plan for 1 elk in 54, please send me a PM.

    Thanks again and I will consider the help for our 2015 hunts.
