I did that the first year I went out there in 1992 right where you stated you''re looking at going and it was a complete flop!!! PS: If you want a cheap, decent DIY antelope hunt, buy a PP this summer and then in 2015 put in for unit 27. It has a ton of public land, plenty of antelope, and some decent bucks if you get off the road and do some walking. Skip the first few days of the season and hunt the Red Hills area in the south/southeastern part just south of Antelope Creek. It has enough cover and up/down elevation for short and long range hunting and you'll be a happy camper.
Thanks for the input. I'm still in very early planning stages right now. I was mainly looking there because of seasons matching with time off available. I'll check out unit 27 too. still gathering a lot of information. Hoping to swing it so Y can head out west to scout during summer, but that depends on funds and car availability. Looks like the any antlered deer season in 27 ends right around my usual time frame, so it might be tight, but if I take off the other 3 day s I have in the week, if might just work.
Thanks to everyone who has given input, trying to figure out trip planning is a lot more work than one might think, and I was expecting it to take a lot of looking
