    Unit 9

    I alpreciate the help guys, it’s refreshing to see people helping people when it comes to hunting.

    Unit 9

    Thanks for the info and I definitely will consider a guide. As of right now I’m planning on giving myself 2 full days of scouting minimum, probably more. My main concern if I went the DIY route would be not knowing what the population density is like. Researching seems that people say most of AZ is managed for quality over quantity which is great but it makes me wonder if that then means more miles of scouting to find them. Obviously whatever it takes I’ll make happen. If I did go solo, would there be any areas to camp?

    Unit 9

    Joined the site to hopefully gain a little insight from others with knowledge to share. I got lucky being pulled as a non-resident for Unit 9 and am extremely excited. I was fortunate enough that my dad started accruing BP's for me when I was younger and I kept it going every year, I believe after 18 I finally hit. I guess I can say I'm not new to the game, I'm just new to the playing field and am looking for a little guidance. I've hunted SD,ND,CO and Mexico before for antelope, mulies, elk etc. but this AZ hunt will be my first time stepping foot anywhere in your state besides the airport. This likely is a once in a lifetime tag for me, and I already know I will get the responses of "hire a guide". While that is something I ordinarily would do I don't think it's going to be in the cards for me this year, the budget is going to be a little tight because the day I found out I drew is the same day the wife told me kid numero uno is on the way! Big mixture of emotions there. With that being said, I will be coming to hunt unit 9 and don't mind going the DIY route. I'm not looking to steal spots, just some general vicinities I can key start with when I show up a few days early to scout. I'm guessing between guides and the other 30ish residents with tags I'll be behind as it is going into it so I'd appreciate any help I can get. I'm thinking I'll likely need to have multiple goats spotted that I'd be willing to pull the trigger on too based on the amount of other people who are hunting the unit. If I'm way off with my thinking here I apologize for my ignorance. It's been a few years since I've had a trip out of state planned and I love every minute of the preparation and research almost as much as actually having my boots on the ground with the gun in my hand. Thank you in advance!
