    Unit 11M bull hunt

    I’m still in the hunt. This 2nd 11M archery elk hunt has been frustrating. I’ve really worked hard on this hunt but it hasn’t yielded any close encounters with any decent bulls. I hunted 9 days then came home. Only a small handful of bugles the entire time I was there. I met some great dudes...we shared info and commiserated. I’m heading back up alone Monday night and will stay through to the end. If anyone lives up there and has any idea of areas to check, it would be sincerely appreciated. Thanks! Jdub
  2. What's the earliest you set them out? Back in 2009 I had a couple out in 3a/3c in June and it was neat to see the antler growth on individual animals, but one got swiped.

    I posted a map with all of the areas you cannot shoot. It sounds like I was bitching, it wasn’t my intention. I’m blessed to have a tag to go hunt with my son. Anyway, good luck to all this year and have a Happy 4th!

  6. I put up a couple cams in my unit today. I hiked down into a canyon that was very dark at the bottom. Really neat spot. Game trails leading out in 5 different directions. It’s a hub of activity. U can see my jeans in the lower right of the first pic...and the other you won’t have to look hard. I exited to the right and he was behind me. See the time stamp.

    If you use trail cameras for elk......

    What the heck? That seems really early
  10. Found this on Amazon. This needs some fixing up but it works great. My cameraa fits perfectly. This is how it comes out of the box. I’m using 2 this year.

    January Malay Elk Rifle Hunt Advice

    No atvs. If the weather is bad, have options.

    rock for trail camera security

    Funny, my biggest concern is critters using it as a den.

    rock for trail camera security

    Yes, the appplications are limited. I have a tank with no trees around it. I’ll put it just below the top of the ridge pointing across the water. Side hill on a trail I drop trace minerals on. I’m trying to avoid losing more cameras hanging on trees.
  14. This one’s been haunting me because I had a shot and blew it. AZ elk (sneaky 7x7?) from 2015. I’m very interested to hear what you think!

    Another guess the score...AZ Bull

    Then you get it. How the heck could I miss by 2 feet? I practice all of the time...over and over...muscle memory and breathing. It’s like the arrow had a mind of its own. I still can’t process it. Was I not looking thru the peep? I wasn’t even shaking or geeked up. And the distance wasn’t outside of my range at all. I don’t have the “hit a branch” excuse. Flat, no wind, plenty of light, elk stopped and unaware.

    Another guess the score...AZ Bull

    I jerked the shot so bad and I was sick about it. He showed up on my trail camera days later. Many days left in the hunt but I stopped hunting. I spent the rest of the time searching for him to no avail.

    Another guess the score...AZ Bull

    I know he wasn’t a monster bull. But he was for 11M.

    12 points...now what?

    Sorry AZBULL. Archery, best hunt first, acceptable hunt 2nd. Don’t look back. JMO

    When will the hits start? no thread on this yet?

    I didn't draw antelope but I did draw Elk. Both show our group bonus points going into the draw now. This sounds like it's going into next week.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but yesterday it showed 0 bonus points under 'hunt party' on the portal. Now it is showing our bonus points going into the draw. Hmm
