    I take it nobody here has hunted 117?

    I'm considering putting in there this year but am not sure it's worth the work.

    thats a good point Elkoholic, it seemed like the thread go off topic and not sure the original post had his questions answered. I have spent some time in 117, on both foot and horseback. Its a very tough hunt. There is a lot of wilderness which is hard for a non-res. the September 15 season would normally mean decent weather up high, but wasnt the case last year. It completely depends on how hard a person hunts or how much scouting they do because the deer arent moving much so far ahead of rut. There are many great units around that catch the first part of the rut that it makes 117 seem even harder. Another point is the people. because its a September season you are overlapping 4 seasons. You may see hunters in the same area for area 5 sheep, 110 antelope, archery 62 & 63 elk are all going on at the same time and can make it frustrating. How big of buck are you looking for and how high are you willing to go?

    The biggest deer my dad and I have ever seen have been in 117. He saw a massive double drop tine buck several years ago while elk hunting. I saw a single dropper buck two years ago while elk hunting. That leads me to believe the genetics are good there. We haven't seen a lot of deer but the ones we have were really big. I'm only considering applying for it if my dad draws sheep though. Even then, I'm not sure if I really want to because if he tagged out before deer season opened I wouldn't be inclined to go back.
