Default Bowhunting the Black Hills

My brother and I are heading to the Black Hills next fall to hunt Muley or Whitetail. I hunted there back in the late 80's with mixed results. We are planning on hunting Northeast of Newcastle, WY. I am interested in hearing any advice on hunting techniques. We are treestand hunters from Wisconsin and will use them there as well. My plan is to scout for a day or two prior to hitting the woods. I hunted water holes in the past out there but wonder about hunting near areas that had a forest fire such as the Jasper fire or looking for feeding areas where there is good grass. Any advice would be appreciated.

You should find plenty of whitetails, but mulies aren't that prevalent in the Hills. I love to go out there in the spring to chase Merriams.

Topgun,

I did speak to a local conservation warden and he said the Muley and Whitetail population has really rebounded over the last 5 years. He said he gun hunts the Black Hills and has seen quality bucks with 4 x 4's and 5 x 5's in the mix. Thanks for the reply.
