My buddy and I are planning out future hunts. We are wanting to mule deer hunt Wyoming at some point in the future. At this point we only have 1 pt. We are starting the research though so that we can somewhat plan out the next ten years or so. My question is would it be worth saving out for region G or is region H just as good of an option for a substantially less waiting period? We can hunt region H twice per once in G but in H we will not be able to access the wilderness as we are out of staters. Another option would be hold out for a limited entry tag as well. I’m leaning toward G but H is very intriguing as well. Let me know your opinions. Thanks everyone.

Hunt H....great hunting. Just stay out of the Wilderness area....plenty of others places to go in that region.
G takes too long to draw and will only get worse.

I don’t agree with that at all I’ve killed bombers in h and it’s literally the same country just more “wilderness” I have two buddies that live in g and they hunt their tag every year in h and have killed multiple 200+ deer the only difference is the wilderness which cuts a lot of land out for the non res...

One of the most knowledgeable guys on the area—Brian Latturner from Monster Muleys—has spent gobs of time in Western Wyoming. Do some digging and you’ll get his idea of reasonable expectations for g and h. There is a relatively significant difference he’s found.

What about grizzlies in H? Heard you are more likely to run into one there.

Yeah there definitely are grizz in h but most are north of the river closer to Yellowstone there’s still plenty of h where you don’t have to worry about them

That’s funny because I’ve seen him in both.

A lot of guys really don’t care for him selling off gps coordinates of deer. In fact I’m sure he gets more flat tires then the average hunter based on how the locals feel about him.

Yeah he hunts both. That’s why he’s one of the better sources of quality in the units based on his vast experience there.

Not contesting that there are some frustrating elements of his business model.

No I don’t hunt wilderness and neither do my friends that are up there we hunted together this year (I had an elk tag) and we never set foot anywhere near wilderness and we were very successful on both deer and elk tags...
