Drew late season archery tag in tbe rubies. Hoping to make the drive for a weekend scouting trip. My plan is to eat, sleep, and breathe ruby mountain mule deer. Sleep in the mountains hopefully in cold and snow and try to arrow a respectable buck. Expectations are for a buck around the 150+ mark.
My son and i drew a great archery deer tag some where in Nevada its top Secret only my son and i know where it is oh and Edward Snowden
My strategy is buy sh!t sell sh!t and get out of dodge hike are butts off top of the mountain and pray to the deer gods
Trying like hell to live the dream
Looks like turkey day in Elko this year. Just a cow tag in west 7 this year but very happy to have it
17 archery deer, 2nd year in a row with this tag. Learned a lot about the area last year and had a frickin blast packing in. Three of my good buddies drew the tag as well so I'm excited. Probably one scouting trip to check out some unfamiliar parts of the unit. Will be mostly weekend hunts since it's reasonably close.
Also drew 111L rifle elk, can't contain my excitement on this one because my dad drew the same exact tag. Dad grew up in the area and have a lot of family there so will be out for at least 2 scouting trips I'm sure. Season runs through Thanksgiving which sucks but will be able to get 6 days of hunting in before I have to be back and if need be I will take off again Fri after thanksgiving.
My pops also drew a great antelope tag and a rifle deer tag so I am in for an exciting fall! Can't frickin wait!!
I drew the coveted Nevada forum spectator tag. Ill be reading lots of post and waiting for season to start for great pictures.

The question has been asked in the Nevada forum, "What did you draw and what's your strategy?" My answer is:
1. Not a thing in Nevada.
2. Hunt a different state this year, and apply again in Nevada next year.
Grand Slam #1005 + 2: Dall (1986 Yukon), Fannin/Stone (1987 Yukon), Bighorn (1988 Colorado Unit S-26), Stone (1995 British Columbia), Desert (2001 Nevada Unit 161), Bighorn (2009 Wyoming Unit 5)
Back to the topic at hand: I neglected to apply in Nevada, therefore, drew no tags.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
Drew area 7 archery buck deer, will make minimal scouting trips since I know enough of the country to fling arrows. Also drew 6 rifle cow elk, again not too many scouting trips since I know plenty of locations to drop one. Unexpectedly drew UT bull, so all my time will be in NW UT learning roads, ridges, waterholes, draws, etc.....Will be spending all available work time on Google Earth mostly in UT but will also look around areas 6 and 7 for new territory. Once it starts, it will be a fast paced exciting hunt!! Best of luck to all that drew!
