Since I guide in all these units too, and have done so for many, many years, I'll throw this in.
You will PASS on bucks in Units 13A and 13B that you had better take on the Kaibab!
You will see a heck of LOT More bucks on the late Kaibab hunt; but the "average" bucks you'll see are much smaller on the Kaibab. You see a 180+ on the Kaibab, might wanna shoot. See a 180 in Units 13A or 13B, let him walk!
But there are BIG BUCKS on the Kaibab. Two years ago on the late west side hunt, my hunter missed the largest buck I have ever seen on the Kaibab and I've hunted there since 1972!
He was wide, tall, junk everywhere! We estimated 230+, but don't know cause we didn't kill him at 203 yards standing broadside with his nose up a does rear end!
I've got 17 deer points and will draw the Strip under the current rules in the next THREE years.
As much as I enjoy hunting on the Kaibab, I'll save my points and take a shot at the Strip.
But for the average guy, a DIY kinda hunter, the Kaibab has way better odds and you'll see more bucks than you've ever seen!
Example: IN 2005 Tony Keller took this awesome 27 inch wide 4 X 4 on the Kaibab.
In 2010 Tony took this buck while hunting with AWO in Unit 13B. This buck was 34 1/4 inches wide and has JUNK everywhere!
Yes, there is a difference!
