Been out 3 times haven’t seen much at all anyone seeing anything ?
I’ll turn something up don’t worry and if not it’s all about the experience with friends and family judging on how much u post on here and how lippy u are you probably wouldn’t know much about thatNot as tough as it is to get a big buck in 34. Does the kool aid taste any better now than application time
I hope you get a big one. It always helps with the experience to shoot a trophy. Or take a participation trophy. Your choice Good luck!!I’ll turn something up don’t worry and if not it’s all about the experience with friends and family judging on how much u post on here and how lippy u are you probably wouldn’t know much about that
You’re putting in the time, something good will happen!Good luck to all 34 tag holders. I’ve been hunting since the opener and have had a difficult time finding mature deer. I’ll be hunting till the end if that’s what it takes. I’d love to meet some of you guys so if you happen to see a black Ford Expedition around stop me and we can compare notes or exchange info on what we’re seeing. Hoping with the colder weather coming in the deer will be more active. Anyway, hope those that are just coming to the unit to hunt can do a better job of finding deer, it’s been tough and not what I expected.
My wife and I will be in a blue crew cab Tundra and my buddy in a white Jeep cherokee. Probably camped off the 33 mile road north of town. If you see us stop and we can chat. We will have camp setup by Sunday afternoon. I will serve frozen beer slushys and pepperoni popsicles.Good luck to all 34 tag holders.

I’d look elsewhere if I were you to be honest ! Again had a good time but not a high quality deer huntCongrats & thank you for the report. I've been collecting points for that unit for about the last 7-8 years. Wondering if maybe its time to look elsewhere??
Nice buck and it looks like you earned it!!
So you killed a deer you’re not happy with. Why kill it then? Better to eat the tag for the 50 lbs of venison you got off that buck.I’ll back what muleman said, unit 34 is a piss poor unit for limited quota. I would compare the unit to a general season unit in Utah. I used 12 points to get the tag and am very disappointed in the numbers of deer/buck size. The unit is not worthy of any more than 1-2 points. I hunted my ass off and only found 2 small framed mature deer in 11 days of hunting. I ended up with a small buck and not what I would consider a 12 year deer. Beware to anyone looking to hunt the unit, I would be looking elsewhere. Even the fish and game officer stated that the unit is struggling.
Thanks. Nope, we were camped off the 33 mile road and the Lone bear road. Had a nice spot tucked in a small canyon out of the wind.Nice write ups. Finnman; where you camped just off of the Buffalo Creek Road south of Sanchez Creek (if I remember correctly)? I was up on the 23th of last month and noticed a camp very similar to yours. The hunter/camp congestion between Buffalo Crk and 33 Mile rd was crazy, much more than I had expected having never elk hunted that area previously.
Congrats! Solid report too!I, and the wife hunted 8 days. Kept in contact with muleman quite regularly. Great guy, great help. Our paths did not cross but were close. 34 is one very, very sad unit for deer. I could see someone routinely pulling a 160 class buck out of that country, ( if you were powerball lucky or you didn't have a job and you lived in that unit). Saw your camp Finnman, (ass load of does between your camp and the gap, routinely) never saw your rigs, but did see your buddy in the cherokee... curious to know if he spotted the bucks on the rimrock before mid day on october 27th. I left them feeding early morning, unapproachable with all the does around. He showed up about an hour later. Helicopter drop in would have been nice
Those 2 bucks were the only 2 bucks that i would have deemed ok in 8 days. Still sad though considering. 34 is a forkie unit. We saw solid mature buck forkies and young forkies.
Great pronghorn. We hunted with our boys. 10 and 12. They did a tremendous job spotting deer with spotting scope and binos, boning out deer and packing out.
Wife got her buck on the tip from muleman, we skirted a few shallow draws late one evening, 12 degrees, caught her buck side hilling out of one crossing below us. Mine was a spot from my boys catching a small buck a mile and half out, left it up to them if we were going after it.. they said they wanted to see if we could close the distance. Due to terrain and wind, we had to go after him blindly for a mile and a half, then we refound him feeding. He stepped into the rocks and trees, still feeding at 290 yds. We went after him. The last 100 yds my boys and wife stopped and i continued, i bumped him out of his bed at 30 feet, did a couple "mehs" shot him barely at 40 yds. Cool experience to have with my family. Wouldn't trade it for nothing.
Cool country. But so wouldn't recommend for deer. If you want to see average bucks and big bucks in this country, get a magazine that has those pictures of bucks in it, drive to this country, many places to park and have beautiful vistas, and vantage points, then pull out your buck magazine.. wamo... Enjoy
