@augmizer, The Portal side is a great area. Find brushy Canyon like I mentioned before and you’ll be good. You’ll see plenty of deer if you get out into the hills and sit behind those 15s, be diligent behind the glass and slowly scan the hills. Once you scan a area, scan it again and again. This time of year they love to be in the sun early as it comes up. I hunted the rut last year with a friend and saw good bucks every day during the last week. I’ll be out in 36a tomorrow helping someone. Good luck!
