Unit 32, AZ

here is what Derek had to say about the hunt:

This was my very first deer ever and the first time I ever put in az.

I got drawn in unit 32 woke up opening day and went to the top of a hill just next to camp and saw a doe and spike about 400 yards out so I decided to get closer and crawled for about 50 yards to look over the edge and found him rubbing an ocotillo about 300 yards out I watched him for about 20 minutes and decided to take a shot I shot just over top of him by bout 2 inches and he ran another 30yards and stopped I took a second shot and he disappeared so I thought I missed again when we went to look for him there was not a single drop of blood so we went looking for more deer until my friend looked to his left and saw hoofs sticking out of a bush my second had hit him and he fell into the bush about 20ft from where he was hit. I got him at 310yards and was a 2×2 it was a great hunt but then I had 6 more days to go to help my friend find his and we did we were up on top of another hill on the day before closing day of our hunt and he spotted a big tom mountain lion creeping through the tress and I heard something running down the hill and spotted two bucks– my friend had to decide to take the lion or the deer and at this time the deer was closer so he took it , it ended up being 120 yards away when he shot and was a good 3×3 coues

    Nice! I got drawn in unit 32 for the Oct hunt. Where did you guys hunt at? I’m not familiar with this area so any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!
