Wondering if anyone that has spent time in Unit 34 would care to share any info. We scouted a bit on a previous hunt, and it is one big unit. Most people say to focus on the NW part of the area, and even that is huge. Hoping to narrow down some areas, if anybody wants to help out it we would be grateful.

Look in the ugliest canyon and draws you can find. I've seen some really nice bucks from the south side to the north side, you'll find them where you find them. I'd hunt the end of the season in hopes of a few bucks getting a little rutty, and get as high as you can with the best glass you have to cover as much ground you can.
Good luck!

Good call... 🔥

I'm not a local or expert, but I have seen them relating to the nasty canyons that have flowing water near them when I've been thru there. Use your maps and you'll find those sorts of places.

I hunted south part last year and took an average 4x4 on 2nd day , nothing special but some small 2nd eye gaurds . went up north 1 day and wind was killer no one was seeing much went back south to open country and killed. There were 2 4x4's together. did some walking the wind was so bad they dig beds into the hillsides to get out of it in the sandy stuff. Good luck.........BOB!

To tell You the truth I don't know . My buddy from casper took us and we had a kid about 15 that we got a deer first and I was not driving and never payed attention where we were at . Was just allways watching for deer.. If I had to guess I would say west.Sorry not much help. Just like I went Guided on the Kaibab last year here in AZ . and killed a great buck, and couldnt tell ya where I was there either. If I am not driving I don't pay atten tion where we are going. Good thing I pay attention when I am Driving My Semi, I goto palm Springs tomm. Morn. same place every trip. I like that . Good Luck, I guess I am a space Kadet.LOL..............BOB!

We didn't hunt real hard and only 2 days. I was more pumped for my hunt back home in a month....Take care and there are bigger ones there just gotta put in the time.......BOB

I spent a couple of weeks in the area several years ago hunting antelope and elk. Spent all of the time in the NW part of the unit. There were some decent deer up around Pine Creek

We had fun hunt. Saw a lot of deer, but like others said, not a lot of big deer. My cousin shot a big 3x3, saw an even bigger buck that we never saw again. I shot a small 5x5 that was too much for me to pass up on the last evening we were out there. He was the biggest of a group of 10 bucks. I'll try and get some pics on here in a bit.
