If you are talking about the Loa area, there are fewer and fewer all the time. I have drawn that unit for archery loper 3 times in the last 11 years and hope to draw again next year. Each time we go, there are less and less. I was there two weeks ago riding my UTV around. We covered a huge area from Bicknell to 20 miles west of Loa. The only place we saw any lopers was in the Boulder mtns, and that was only 2 small herds back in a canyon on the GWT system. This time of year, they usually are all over in the lower Boulder mtns. No so this year. It has been a mystery to me where they have gone. Still, it is a fun hunt I look forward to going each time I am eligible for a permit. 2 years ago, we took 5 for 5 with archery gear.
