4 of us drew party rifle muley tags in 131. I've never been that far east or south for a hunt, always northern Washoe or humboldt co. If anybody has any tips on that area it would be awesome.

My wife the lucky lady, has drawn a Bull tag in 231, I put in for Antelope horns shorter than ears just because I was going to lose the 4 points I had and lo and behold, I got my 1st choice. I Also drew a archery cow group tag.

i love this area, 231 and will hopefully draw it for my next bull tag!

We got our shorter than ears speed goats at 1:00 on opening day, both at the same time. Quartering them out in some pretty good heat after two full days of scouting and a long day of hunting was challenging but came out just fine in the end.

021 End of the second day, opening weekend, we had given up and were working our way out, about 6 pm. Spotted him with six doe at about six hundred yards, worked our way into about three hundred. 7mm 08 did its job drop were he stood.

Leaving in two weeks to carry rifles and spot for aunt and uncle on antler less hunts; not something I or they have experienced in their years of drawing tags. They are in the 70-ish range (aunt has been 39 for 30+ years and uncle is her senior). With the amount of wisdom and knowledge passed on these trips I'm usually left in a head spin for a week or so after my first shower home. Think I'm more excited about this trip than any before it.

Two days to hunt, took the first legal deer I could find on Sunday. He was with a bigger buck; but I stupidly tripped and spooked them. Didn't have a shot at the bigger one, and wasn't willing to risk getting nothing. High on Granite Mountain in 044. By the time I got him quartered and in the pack, the storms blew up around me and the rain started in. The highway to Unionville had some flash flooding going on on my way out. Sad little antlers; but good meat in the freezer. Very happy to have filled the tag, 4th year in a row.

I was on a chukar hunt Sunday just across the highway. That storm was pretty wicked; I watched it roll into the canyon around 9:30.

Congrats! There's nothing wrong with a forkie!
