Well I would say that although there are highs and lows with herds based on a multitude of factors you have to just pick and go put boots on the ground. If you are only going off of numbers on paper you could be setting your expectations up for failure. With the points you have it is kind of hard to beat region G plus you don't lock yourselves into only one unit, if you don't like what you are seeing you have plenty of room to travel/explore. Based on my conversation with Todd Graham (region G biologist) on 1/16/2014 the herd is on a solid rebound form the 2010 winter. Not to steer you away from your plan, just more food for thought. I believe as long as you put boots on the ground, hunt hard, and spend the time behind the glass you can create success in any state/unit!
I didn't read all of these, hope I don't repeat too much. I agree, 84 is railroad checkerboard and hard to hunt public. There are places to go, but its hard. 60 is a tough draw. I have been trying there for awhile. There are deer and places to go there, but it is pretty popular with the locals. Don't know anything about 37. In 34 I see big deer on the road down that way all the time, but I haven't hunted there. Of those areas, I would say 34. There are lots of opinions to go through though. 34 probably has some of the best access of the locations you mentioned, too. It will take some research to find the places to go, as you can see the locals can be protective of their spots.
My grandpa used to hunt Region G and H-or there abouts. He got some dandies out of the Wyoming Range and the Mesa. It sounds like it might be bouncing back, that might be some good news. I think there is some good genetics for big deer in G and H. I am not an expert, though. Only the public areas are steep and rough. Just kidding. It is some beautiful country.
