    Welcome to EF, Zip!

    You might want to narrow down the state.

    If you are talking about Wyoming, I asked the same question a while back.

    http://www.eastmans.com/forum/showth...yoming-unit-73

    From what I have been able to find out the animals tend to concentrate in some parts of the unit while other parts are void of critters. It is my personal opinion that you could have a good hunt in 73 with some effort.

    As for Area 73, there are some really good BLM land off of Garbutt Road, 33 Mile Road, but I would definitely suggest using your GPS with the Wyoming land Chip from Game and Fish, this way you can avoid hunting on private land which can get you into some hot water if you do not have persmission. I harveted a nice buck off of 33 Mile road, but that area was hard hunting. The western half of the area has some real good bucks if you can get to the animals before they turn skiddish. The western half has some leased lands by outfitters who tend to take offense if you dare travel through there looking for wayward trophies, but there are some great bucks if you can draw this area.

    With over 1300 total buck antelope tags it a crap shoot. you wont have a hard time finding any, you will have a hard time finding a trophy.

    ADavid is right on, there are 900 tags this year. Unit 73 is a HUGE unit, comprising around 1400 square miles of area, so the tag density is comparable with other good units. Unit 72 next to is is half the size and has the same number of tags.
