I was just wondering if anyone had any advice. I’m not looking for anyone’s honey hole but maybe just some areas to try. We won’t get but a day or two of scouting in before season starts because we’re coming from ND. Any pointers would be appreciated!

8, there is a 80,000 acre fire in that unit. It's almost contained. Check online for the area burned and I'd guess the wildlife will have moved east of that. Good luck

I assume the archery hunt is pretty early in the season so most likely most of the deer will still be up high. That area should not be impacted much by what is on fire right now.

Thanks for the info. I had heard there was a fire but wasn’t sure how large of an area.

Plenty of deer on the Kaibab. No need to scout. The burn wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. It burned under the trees in most areas, and just scorched the ground. The recent rains, have already started new growth. We've seen deer in the new burn already too. Good luck on the hunt.

Good luck on your hunt, the Kaibab is an awesome place to hunt. And it is hard to get drawn for!! My son in law hunted it a couple of years ago. He saw lots of deer, but he was new to archery and didn't connect. But he puts in every year and hasn't got drawn since!
