With the massive amount of data coming in from the field, Scout to Hunt has been able to notice great things coming out of Nevada from our perspective this season. If you've been following any major western game feeds on social media, it's likely that you seen the great bull that was harvested in Nevada at the start of the season by Shannon and the Bull Ridge Guide Service. (Seen below.)



After a quick look at the plethora of up-to-date unit data found in Scout to Hunt's Advanced Scouting Platform, it was clear that the same bull was spotted in the area a *few weeks prior to the hunt.*

Interestingly, this is one giant bull out of many that have been spotted through Scout to Hunt and it's showing a positive trend for Nevada bucks and bulls--especially the bulls. Simply put: **Nevada is a great place to be right now.**

Here are just a few other bulls that have been spotted in NV so far.

###No longer in hindsight

If we had not been able to analyze this up-to-date data and incorporate it into our research pre- and post- draws, we never would have known what Nevada has been producing. The tough thing about putting-in for draws is knowing whether or not there's a better unit to put-in for that will render more desirable results. It's always in hindsight that we figure that out, for better or for worse.

It's not a new revelation that every season is different from the previous. We know that game move, units change and nature is clever. It's a great undertaking to know where to focus our research before the draws and where to start our scouting after we get tags when there's so much country and so many units that could possibly hold the monster bucks and giant bulls and delicious clean meat we all work so hard to find. Having hard data you can see as proof that there's desirable game to be scouted in a particular area is an invaluable asset to making decisions that put you in the right direction from the start.
