wyoming hunt areas

I am looking for information on good elk units in wyoming. I finally have four pref points and need to start looking for what would be a good unit. I am still up in the air as to going with or without a guide yet. I have been told by a friend that unit 95 is good, any feedback on that unit would be good too. I am mostly looking for a unit with good numbers and plenty of public land. Any useful information would be greatly appreciated.

Re: wyoming hunt areas

My Wyoming elk data will be up later this week, but I can tell you I've got 95 ranked 17 out of 122 rifle bull hunts. It's also amongst the top "value" hunts, in that it requires fewer points than most(but not all) of the top ranked hunts. Many of those top units are purely wilderness, so you will of course need a guide. 95 is about half wilderness.
As for elk numbers, the top elk density units in Wyoming are in the herd that makes up the following units: 70,71,74,75,76,77,78,79,80,81,82,83. These areas have nearly as many elk per square mile as Colorado's famed Flat Tops. Many of those units are also general tags, but of course the pressure gets pretty high.
