I am doing a diy bowhunt in mid October , heading to NW S.Dakota.  Have my non resident archery tag.

I understand there is a 50/50 mix of whitetail – mule deer

Hunted whitetails my whole life so chance at any decent Muley is my goal

Can anybody that has done this in Custer National or Grand River Grasslands Forrests give me some tips on starting location?

I talked with conservation officer for Harding Co. and he mentioned some guys prefer a spot  n stalk in the Grasslands over Custer National.

Appreciate any help to get us going in right direction
