I was out there last year and got my first mule deer - not very big but happy with it nonetheless. Lots of other hunters, especially near the roads, not so much if you walk a bit. there is a fair amount of public land but access is not always easy. Plenty of room to roam though. You can park anywhere on BLM. If it were me, Id pull into the Buffalo KOA, they are very hunter friendly, have a game cleaning area and you can get to most places to hunt in a half hour or so.
