    Only familiar with 124, lots of deer on private. Very few deer on public but they are there. A few landowners will let you hunt for does. A spotting scope will be handy if you want to hung the public land, it's mostly badlands and sagebrush.

    I have heard knowledgeable people on here talk about 105 and 106 with more National Forest and not as much wilderness. I agree with ssliger, though. The stuff in the middle is pretty sparse. Pretty much all the arable land is private. It used to be good by Meeteesee, there is some hit and miss BLM (those chips are handy) and some National Forest up to the Wilderness boundary. Not much help, but hopefully somewhere to start.

    There is plenty of huntable NF land in 105 and 106 east of the wilderness area that a guy can have a good DIY hunt in.

    I guess I will say it, watch out for the grizz's! They are up high and down low on the BLM lands, if you have never hiked/hunted/camped in grizzly country you will need to study up on precautions and safety. Hunt with another person, this is the reason I have not hunted F yet...can't get anyone to go with me.

    I have not hunted F, but spent some time in their scouting/hiking around Sunlight Basin and the 105/106 area. I would concentrate on the higher elevations if weather allows it, lots of trails to hike in on and the further you get from the road hunters the more deer your likely to run into. I seen a few doe and a couple small bucks, but I was hiking in the middle of the day in late Sept and it was warm.

    Study google earth and buy a chip that has basecamp on it, then you can view your selected area in Google earth.

    If you have 7 days, then I would try my best to spend all 7 of them in the same general area. It will take some time to find the deer, if you drive all over the place you do stand a chance of finding some but I subscribe to the thought of getting to know an area deeply, especially if you plan to hunt there again.

    Thanks for the advise I do find it very helpful I will be hunting alone and in my poking around it sounds like the bears are a problem in that area I would like to go in and camp and spend all week but I have heard from to many people who know what they are talking about to not go alone unless you have alot of experience with bears so ill probably stay in the units with less deer but thats alright still get to go huntin. Do you or anyone else know about area 127 seems theres alot of public land thats probably the best option for me this year Thanks.

    I'm thinking about this hunt as well. I struck out on the antelope. What time is better to hunt region f? There are some of the units that stay open until November 10th. But 105 and 106 close October 31. 111, 112, and 113 are open until November 10. What is going to be more effective? I understand the migration and rut are good times to hunt but every ones opinion would be great. Thanks

    The further into November you can hunt the better chance you have of killing a good buck or any buck as far as that goes because the rut will be going pretty good by the second week of the month in most years. If you can find enough legally accessible land in the units that are open well into November, that's where I'd be heading.
