Do you have any local outdoor or hunting shows in your area? I take mine to our local show and they score them free if you leave them there for the show.
Was kinda figuring on taking a giant whitetail this year n then having them both scored.....that didn't work out tho Lol!!
Why in the world would anyone even think of hunting unit 55 that is completely checkerboarded and only has one public road running through it unless they had access to a ranch there?
Checkerboarding deters smart people like myself that don't want to take a chance on trespassing or hunting "little" square mile chunks of property that are surrounded by private land with ranchers that will tell you that you're on their land and try to get a trespass ticket written even if you're in the right! That happens regardless of whether you have a GPS with a chip in it or not and that's why I stated that I wouldn't hunt it unless I had access to a ranch, meaning either by paying a trespass fee or going to a HMA or WIHA if there are any of decent size in the area. I've been hunting Wyoming dang near every year for over 20 years, so I do know my way around and what can work and make a good hunt or one that can backfire and cause more trouble than it's worth. IMHO most of those checkerboarded areas are the latter unless you can get on a ranch legally like I mentioned.

I dont think it is detering that many people since it now takes 4 points to draw it. Its the only unit I have noticed with poor access that takes any points to draw. I would consider a unit like that 2nd choice but to me there are alot better units that can be had with 4 points. Luckily we all look for different things when choosing a unit or we would all apply for the same unit and the draw odds would be 10,000-1 while all the other units had leftover tags. lol
You looked into 91 or 92?? I don't know how many points there taking but we've hunted that area several times.
