    I would agree with the above assessment on unit 43. Several years back, for a couple years in a row, I spent literally days behind binoculars & spotting scope while volunteering for a bighorn sheep count. Of course, I wasn't going to look away if I saw any big bucks up there above timberline, but in all that time up there all I ever saw was a forkhorn. I was only in a relatively small part of the unit, and the scenery was spectacular, and it looked like a real good place for a real whopper of a buck to hang out. I'm sure there would be a few around but I didn't see enough to make me willing to burn points there at the time. Of course, things could have changed by now.

    It has produced some big deer but I dont think alot of them. IMO its pretty over rated. I saw more deer on some NF land I tried the last few days then I did backpacking into 2 areas of the wilderness. I had a great time and hunt but I drew the ML tag 2nd choice and would have been very disappointed if I had waited that long to draw the rifle tag.
