Hi all, Following the suggestion of a few wise & helpful friends I'm submitting my first post to this site. Have enjoyed reading many threads already. I have high hopes of seeing the word "successful" when viewing the upcoming draw results (my card was hit and Unit 1 was my only choice). This will be my one and only hunt in Arizona. While my primary objective is to enjoy the wilderness & experience some good rut activity, I am hopeful my 15 years of patience will provide an opportunity to encounter a mature bull during 2 weeks of hard hunting (350 class). From my research to date, the area south & west of Big Lake seems to be the leading candidate to call home for a couple weeks. Not looking for anyone's honey hole from years of experience, rather generalities as to elk population, recent changes that could impact this fall (continued Wallow fire growth/recovery, impact of tag quantity changes, hunting pressure, access, etc.) Would very much appreciate any feedback as to my current line of thinking (i.e. am I getting warmer?) Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom. Feel free to PM me. Hope to be able to return the favor by sharing the results of my experience and perhaps meeting you in camp this fall. Best of luck in the draw.
Thinking about putting in for 22 this year but im wondering about the terrain, how does it compare to the northern end of 27? Everything Ive read says the access is moderate to difficult, don't know if that is due to rough terrain or wilderness areas. With all the tag increases in my favorite units the 25 tags and high archery success make it a very tempting choice just not sure if I want to chance my 9 points without more info on the unit. Planning on calling the WM this week for some tips. Any help from anyone whos hunted it or knows it would be appreciated. Thanks
