I just finished the density and trophy potential estimates on those yesterday. 36 is a much better option, about 50% more elk per square mile and they kill a much lower % of bulls. Hunter densities are miniscule and nearly identical.
Ive hunted both units twice in the past 6 years. 34 you will see more bulls but not as many big ones, the problem with that is every where you go there is a road that someone can bust a hunt for you. 36 is more of a wilderness hunt so you will have to do a lot of walking or horse back, that is what I use to get on top where I found the big bulls.
I did not kill one in 36 but IMO it is the better hunt. In 34 I have killed a rifle november cow and a ML 5x5.
The best advice I can give is apply, draw, and have the time of your Life. Good luck.
