    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.

    3b sept archery

    Any tips for 3b archery in sept?
  5. 1. Penetration Capability: For an effective hunting experience, bone-crushing and penetration capacity are the most dependable factors for the broadheads. Hunting will be distressing without these 2 elements. For avoiding deflection, the “clean cuts” are definitely essential while shooting the target since you do not desire the bolt to jump out of the animal. 2. Flight Trajectory: No to mention, as described above the big blades are greatly affected by the wind so you must consider this before purchasing. If your nearly all shots are low range as much as 20 – 40 yards then they are not affected by the wind significantly. In that factor, Mechanical broadheads provide more straightness. At the time of spinning if the broadhead deflects then you could check out the alignment of broadheads or tune the blades by utilizing spin tester. 3. Sharpness Of The Blades: The term “Sharpness” in hunting explains the significance of itself. Not forgetting, you must ask these questions yourself before buying any heads are that: How long the integrity last? How merely may it be sharpened? Do blades remain razor-sharp after a number of shots? 4. The Blood Trails: The blood trails left behind can be the important consideration. The “fixed-blades” provide deep penetration however quite low blood trails and for sure, “mechanical blades” possess a huge benefit over the fixed blades. On the other hand, several fixed blades provide good outcomes in that factor. Judging by all these 4 factors, we have outlined a few of the great products. By determining your needs you can choose the Best Fixed Blade broadheads for elk which fit your needs more.

  7. I am hunting Malay Jan 2020 without a guide. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  8. Well, now I've done it. I got drawn for mid-Oct cow elk tag. I'm looking to stock the freezer with some delicious meat. Now the problem is, I know almost nothing of the 7W GMU. I'm starting to dig through the maps but I was hoping that someone might be able to point me in the right direction. I'm not looking for people to give up their honey holes, but I would appreciate any help. Thanks

    Wife & I drew ML elk :)

    Most likely antlerless in 3B in October. I've spent a lot of time in 3A/3C, but this will be the first time in 3B. Figured we had to branch out a bit since it's getting so hard to draw anything in 3A/3C.

    2019 regs

    I must have a short memory but it seems like they reduced the archery antelope permits by quite a bit from previous years? https://s3.amazonaws.com/azgfd-portal-wordpress/azgfd.wp/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/27120936/2019-Pronghorn-Antelope-and-Elk-Regs_WEB.pdf

    Late Season Unit 1

    Hello everyone, I am a first time DIY elk hunter. My father-in-law and I are heading out to Unit 1 for a late season bull hunt. I did not grow up hunting but have done a little over the past few years. All of my hunts have been DIY based on lots of reading and trial and error. We were able to spend the Thanksgiving weekend (Fri-Sun) scouting & glassing sun up to sun down but were unable to locate many elk. I was hoping that some of you would be gracious enough to share some advice about hunting late season elk in Unit 1 Arizona. Are most still up at higher elevations? Are bulls still generally sticking to secluded areas this long after the rut? Is it beneficial to still use calls occasionally? I have done quite a bit of research, but nothing beats picking the brains of an expert. Any advice/help you could give is much appreciated! John

    Youth Unit 23 rifle bull tag

    Alright, I'm throwing out a life line here. My nephew was lucky enough to draw a rifle tag for unit 23 her in AZ. I have spent a number of days up scouting for him and did find good sign, just not as fresh as I would like. Here's the kicker. He's a senior in high school and has his mind set on going to either West Point or the Air Force Academy and found out last week he has his an interview on Saturday 12/1. So, what was originally going to be a 4.5 day hunt (1 scout day on the 29th) has now been shrunk to a 2, possibly 1.5 day hunt. He's hoping to get to camp mid day on 12/1, but is unsure if he'll be able to get out of town early enough. Any help would be greatly appreciated! This is his first hunt, our only goal is to find a bull, and I really want to help him be successful. Thanks in advance for any info you're willing to share

    The power of water

    The view from my in laws back porch. Every year at this time the water brings them in. Some times my mother in law will get a picture with five of our big game species in it at the same time.

    Bonus Pass on the Peaks hunts

    Can anyone direct me to the info on the bonus pass round for the peaks only hunts for elk. How many points did most guys draw it on. Will AZGFD keep these hunts going for a while? I understand they want Aspen Regrowth. This is purely a curiosity post and I can’t find anything on it. Thanks.

  23. I found this dead head and carcass while shed hunting last April. Was wondering if it was a bull that shed it's antlers and then died or if someone either killed or found it dead and then sawed off the individual antlers? The base of sheds are really bumpy/gritty and not so flat/smooth, so I was guessing they might have been sawed off? Any thoughts?

    Elk 22S Muzzleloader

    Hey All.. My card got hit yesterday morning for the cost of an elk tag! I put in for 3A/3C rifle rut first and 22S muzzleloader rut second. Given that I only had 6 pts Im assuming its the muzzleloader hunt. I live in Mesa and hunt 22 a lot for quail, pig and deer, but Im not terribly familiar with elk south of the 260. If anybody has any recommendations on camp grounds and places to consider I would appreciate it.
