Kaibab Unit 12 A East, or the east side Kaibab, is home to some tremendous trophy mule deer bucks and is home to some of the best trophy mule deer bucks in the state of Arizona. Trophy mule deer hunters that are lucky enough to draw a late season east side rifle Kaibab mule deer tag will get to experience a good quality mule deer hunt with trophy bucks in the rut and Boone and Crockett mule deer buck potential. Although many record book mule deer bucks have also been harvested in this Kaibab unit on both the early rifle and archery mule deer hunts, the premium late season rifle rut mule deer hunts in Unit 12 A East is where trophy mule deer hunters will experience the highest chances of success of tagging a giant Kaibab mule deer buck.

Unit 12 A East on the Kaibab Plateau contains a lot of very rough mule deer country that is inaccessible by roads and requires a lot of hiking to get into. There is a lot of mule deer country in Kaibab Unit 12A east that does lend itself to glassing and spot and stalk mule deer hunting but, the majority of the best mule deer country in unit 12 A East is very rough, thickly vegetated, wilderness type country that can make hunting and locating trophy mule deer bucks very tough. This type of rough and remote country is exactly the recipe to grow giant mule deer bucks though and Kaibab Unit 12A east annually produces it’s fair share of giant mule deer bucks for the trophy mule deer hunters that are lucky enough to draw a tag in this unit.

Kaibab Unit 12A East does not receive quite the numbers of migratory mule deer bucks that the west side of the Kaibab generally does on an annual basis. For whatever reason, it seems that most of the trophy mule deer bucks that migrate off the high elevation summer country on the Kaibab Plateau tend to migrate to the west side. The migratory mule deer numbers and resident mule deer densities and populations that are found in Kaibab Unit 12A east are generally much lower than the west side of the Kaibab but, the east side sometimes produces the highest scoring trophy mule deer bucks that are taken yearly on the Kaibab Plateau. Kaibab Unit 12A east hunters need to be prepared to see lower numbers of mule deer than are seen on the west side of the Kaibab but be prepared to possibly encounter the giant mule deer buck of a lifetime.
