No. There is not a lot and most is in small pieces. It gets hammered by hunters. There are some large areas up north, but they, too get hit pretty hard.
It used to be that you could hunt lots of places with a knock on a door, but those days are largely gone. Many outfitters and other out-of-staters are leasing the land, or it is hunted by friends and family.
A lot of areas got hit real hard with EHD. Many people aren't seeing near the numbers of deer that there have been. The mule deer area where I was able to hunt last year, has virtually lost all of its deer-both mule deer and white-tail. I don't know if it was EHD or something else, but deer that have historically been in the hills and valleys that we hunted are completely gone.
