    Well fifth generation out of Humboldt County CA. Born and raised hunting and fishing. Been archery hunting all my life and have my kids also doing the same. Have two 9 year olds that shoot their bows everyday. My father and I have been applying for hunts in most states and we got drawn this year for this tag. Would like a little help with this unit if possible
    Thanks

    Great tag! It depends on whether you want to hunt early in the month when the big bulls are usually cruising looking for cows to establish their harems or later in the month as the rut actually gets going and they are bugling, chasing, fighting. It's generally easier to call in a good bull before the middle of the month when they're receptive to cow calls and harder once they get cows together. Then it's generally the smaller satellite bulls that will come in. It's also very hard to get within bow range of a big bull surrounded by his cows with all those extra eyes and noses you have to fool. If you can't hunt more than two weeks, I'd pick the middle two weeks of the month. That way you can catch at least part of both in a normal year. Otherwise, I'd go the last half of the month because in a late rut like it was last year with bulls still hard in the rut well into October, you'll catch at least part of it when you might not if you went the first two weeks. In any event, if you can hunt a couple weeks and know what you're doing a 330" or better bull can be had from that unit.

    Topgun thank you for the info. I may be able to get three weeks or split up the weeks off. I do agree i prefer the early part of the rut and have found it easier to get the bigger bulls in. The less eyes the better when trying to get within bow range.

    kiddwinner pics would be awesome.

    Any info on where to scout or start would be helpfull and does anyone think a guided is needed? Walking isnt an issue with us.

    Thank you again for all the info!!
