This hunt was on public land, 2nd season in unit 66 in the Gunnison Valley. Guide Service Owner Sold his service indicating his guides new of "Honey Holes" and locations where they would be able to locate Mature Mule Deer in unit 66. Unfortunately 99% of the deer we (buddy and I each had or own guides) saw were does or immature bucks (2-3 Year old deer). I saw no adult deer and no Mature/Trophy Deer. To their credit the guides worked very hard but over 5 days we covered the same unproductive ground we hunted 1-2 days before. I was told this was a migration area so maybe this is how it should be hunted. Bottom line, the areas we hunted had no age structure to the herd; all deer were immature. I liked my guide and he worked hard but no quality deer.
Was the outfitter notified of problems? - YES

First two days we had snow 3-4 inches the first day and we did have some wind late the second day. Last three days of the hunt were stable and a mix of sun and clouds.
