    22N Late Rifle

    Hello, I am new to the site, new to Elk hunting, and new to Arizona. I submitted into the draw this year and was drawn for the late rifle (11/26 - 12/2) bull hunt in 22N. Being somewhat newer to Arizona and new to Elk Hunting, I have been in contact with a few guides. However, after doing some research, I am not certain if I want to spend that kind of money for a not so elite hunt / unit. My concern is being new to Elk hunting, I recognize the learning curve and the difficulty of the Unit (from what I have read). ELk hunting is something that I hope to continue to pursue for years to come. I have been doing a lot of research on 22N and e-scouting some of the common spots and plan to spend a weekend doing some actual scouting sometime soon. I have looked at everything from fully outfitted down to scouting packages. Also, I understand the weather can get tough that time of the year. Are most DIY hunters back-packing / tenting it, campers, or cabins? Thank you in advance for any insight and advice!

  7. My 10 year old daughter drew a unit 9 cow tag for the 8-14 October youth hunt this year. We're excited and a little surprised as her Hunters Ed point hasn’t even been awarded yet so she drew with 0 points. Anyway; first big game tag for her and so far she only has a few rabbits under her belt via the 22. We have a summer of center fire practice ahead of us. My familiarity with unit 9 is nil. I have seen some archery success at Camp Navajo, but that is the extent of my AZ elk experience. I would tend to think that some bugling would still be heard mid-Oct to help us locate herds, but otherwise I would plan to scout and gravitate towards water. It does not appear to me that the unit will lend itself very well to glassing. I also see pretty extensive road coverage such that truck camping with daily backpack hunting can cover most of the unit,no? I don’t have an ATV, standard 4wd pickup only. I have multi-day backcountry backpack hunted MT so I am equipped, but that’s probably a bit much to ask of my daughter on her first big game hunt if not necessary. Any assistance validating or correcting some of my assumptions above or any general guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Hank

    5BS vs 5BN

    My son in- law drew a late Bull tag in 5B. Any thoughts on which is better for a first time tag holder? North or south? I have heard that you can get some really bad weather up there. He has a cabin at Happy Jack. Thanks.

    The peaks tag

    Hi all - long time follower of the site, first time posting because I FINALLY drew an elk tag. I wanted an elk tag this year before my wife and I have kids so I put in for the peaks and 6A early season rifle bull. My credit card hit and I am 99% certain its the peaks. I am in very good shape however I know I will need to step up my workouts for this hunt. I usually OTC deer hunt in 7E so I know the neighboring terrain. I scouted it last year in late august. Saw more bulls than cows, saw a bachelor herd of rag horns with a respectable 6x6 and caught a beautiful 5x5 on game camera. My questions are: is there a recent burn area in the peaks? Does calling in early October work? I see the archery bull and the rifle cow will encompass their first 3 weeks and the neighboring unit 7E, will also have had their archery bull hunt in September as well. Will this drive the elk up the timberline 10-11k feet? I've watched all of Randy's videos on the hunt. Seems like a true old school hunt, no vehicle access, hiking in and out, which I love to do. I get the feeling that people who are desperate (including me) to get an elk tag put in for this unit but turn back when they actually see the work involved. Any advice or information will be awesome, I love hunting, dreamed of elk hunting with my dad since I was a young boy. Now I got the chance and would love to make it good, memorable hunt with him, and I'd appreciate any input. Thanks!

    Not gov tag but OTC tag filled

    Not the gov. tag but filled the freezer early this year. Been blessed many years with the OTC tags when I don't draw one. Thankful to live where I can get out every year and try my luck. Have to love Arizona elk hunting.

    Oversized Cutting Boards

    These are very handy for keeping game clean(and your kitchen) while processing. They will easily fit a full elk quarter. This is the same material that the white cutting boards used in most homes are made from but are bigger and thicker. They are approximately 24" x 48"and are 5/8"-3/4" thick. They will last a lifetime. Makes an awesome bench top too. Easy on knife edges and easy to clean. These are remnants from large sheets. They've been cut on a table saw and have square corners, somewhat sharp edges, and somewhat rough edges. If it matters to you, sand it. $40.00 each. I have quite a few. I'm near Bass Pro. Jeff

    Adult onset hunter, first Elk tag

    New to the forum and frankly, still new to hunting, 5 years of putting in for tags, Ive pulled a few Coues tags down in 35A (way out of my league, but enjoyed every minute of it) along with 4 years of whitetail hunting in Oklahoma, which as you know is nothing like hunting in the west. I pulled my first tag this year, 5A late season hunt and looking for some guidance. Fortunately, I am familiar with the area from many years of camping, but not sure where to begin with a tag in my pocket. So any advice for a novice hunter on a late season Elk hunt in 5A?
  14. Have several great recipes for Backstrap but not the inner loins. Don't wanna mess them up. Thanks.

    NM 6A tag

    Hello, I've hunted for the past three years unsuccessfully. I'm (self-taught/Learning) and didn't grow up hunting nor knew anyone that really did. I'm not looking for secrets! I understand we are all out looking to come home with meat for the year. Will someone one be kind enough to point me the right direction in this unit. I'm not afraid to get off the road and hike. I'll take ANY tips, I'm not proud, just humbly learning. One step at a time. Thanks, Mark

    New mexico GMU 12 Elk hunt

    All, First time ever drawing a elk tag. I drew a December cow tag in GMU 12 in western New Mexico. Does anyone have any tips or insight into what public land is best to hunt during that time frame. I have limited time to scout I will be out of the U.S until late November so my ability to scout is limited.

    Good morning everyone, I have drawn a late general bull elk tag in unit 8 and was wondering if anyone had any advice ? I know its a hard hunt in December, made harder by weather and pressure but just reaching out for any pointers that might improve my odds of taking a meat bull.
