My friends and I all hunt that area. This Fire Sucks! :'( The deer will run as far as they need to to get out of it's path. Some will get caught in it a die. I have found fresh cooked bones a week after a fire in years passed. There may be more deer in some areas that have not burned now, but the problem is they won't let you up the mountain until the fire danger is over unless you live up there.
