    decker fire unit 82/86 salida area

    How is the decker fire going to affect the deer hunting in the units? With the northern 1/3 of the unit being completely closed and that being where i had focused most of my aerial scouting and planning this has really hurt my plans!

    well i have 6 points and my friend has 2 and it has traditionally been drawn 50% with 1 point. I really wanted to hunt 80/81 but he couldn't be certain to draw a tag. We will go regardless with him buying a elk tag. The sheer size of the unit and the way it rises out of flat nothing to 5k' is a...
