Just curious if anyone has ever drawn a Sage Grouse permit. I put in every year. I drew one five years ago and took a Hen in the south mono north inyo hunt. It was my first year applying. One of the guys I met there said he had applied for the previous 15 years and it was the first time he'd been drawn. Ay idea how many people put in for this hunt? On a related note, the area I hunted was just north of Crowley Lake between the Hot creek Hatchery and Benton crossing road. There were deer everywhere, but I only saw does. This is in X9A I believe. Does this area hold any bucks? I applied for an X9A tag and would happily take any legal buck, I'm not picky. Any help from you X9A pros would be helpful.
