Default Central MTNS/Nebo Deer

Wondering if anyone in here has any insight on this unit and your overall opinions of it for deer?

I drew my DH for this unit because it will give me the most opportunity to hunt, and during a mitigation elk hunt on this unit i think i saw over 500 deer last year in a couple days hunting.

Just wondering what the quality/quantity is like from people that have hunted it before. From what i have read the unit had a pretty bad decline for deer and is possibly making a rebound lately.

Either way im excited to learn more about this unit and get in a good amount of scouting this summer.

Huge numbers of deer displaced through the winter due to the summer fires. We had hundreds wintering on family ground that normally has a dozen or so.

This may explain why i saw so many deer in such small areas. I am curious to see how it affects how they use their summer range and what not. Will the southern end of the unit be a better bet because they didnt lose as much habitat or will the north be more productive due to the fires? I guess time will tell.

Summer range will be a whole different thing this coming summer. As long as the fire was not too hot new brush will be growing all over and the deer will love it and migrate to it.

Like Critter said, they will be in the new growth loving it.

Also, after a burn mature deer will have beautiful black dark antlers from rubbing burned trees. They look amazing.

The biggest issue I see on the Nebo unit in the near future is access.

Sounds like the Nebo loop road may be closed all year. A long with Sataquin canyon.
Also closures continue on Bennie and Nebo creek access.
No definitive answers when they will open either.

Really? I had no clue the loop was going to be closed all year, if it is thats no problem, from what i read, thats road hunting central. Ill have to look into other areas that are accessible from different routes, thanks for the heads up

The South end has had a few decent bucks roaming around. The issue is, if the loop road is closed all year, that's pushing hunters to that area as well. I'd bet you'll see more hunters than deer.

Everyone calm your tatas. There’s plans to try and have the Nebo loop open this weekend, if not there are efforts being made to open it ASAP. Santaquin, Nebo creek and Bennie creek are all basically a lost cause this year, and maybe the foreseeable future with as badly as they are damaged.

I drew the Nebo tag, as well. I've never hunted it before either so I can't give you much info. It will be interesting to see how the fires and closures affect deer concentrations, hunter concentrations, etc...
