Re: South Dakotans - what did you draw in 2012
I too will be hunting 27B. The majority of the whitetails will be found in the southern and eastern portions of our unit. Plenty of public land, but plenty of hunters to go along with it. The walk in areas are huge, and if you don't mind doing alot of walking, you can get away from the masses.
However, they can be found just about everywhere. With the changes GF&P made to the season this year, no early season, less licenses, and no buck tags can be used for does in the late season. There ought to be a little less pressure on them.
Being as close as you are, I might suggest a trip down to try to line yourself up some private land in those portions of the unit.
