  1. Archers Lodge
    I’m new to Arizona but have elk hunted in Colorado for 20 years. So I’m trying to learn which units in Arizona to hunt(archery) elk. Also how does the draw work here in Arizona? Most archery tags in Colorado were OTC. Do you have to apply for a bull tag? Can I buy archery tags OTC. I...

    Hello I am fairly new to hunting and have only bagged one deer archery 2 years ago. I have an OTC deer,elk, and turkey tag and would like to try to bag as much as I can this year. I made this forum not to talk about honey holes but to have tips and tricks on how to scout and other general...

    I recently was drawn for Elk in Colorado ... I have never hunted out of state before and was wondering 2 things. How do I get my guns there and how do I get my meat home if I fly? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello, I recently moved to Arizona from the midwest. I grew up hunting whitetail in the midwest, but only been on a few western hunts. If anyone in the Phoenix area is looking for a hunting buddy let me know. I'll hunt small game, big game, birds, waterfowl, etc. Just looking to learn and gain...

    Hi All, I'm writing an article on the history of elk in Arizona and was hoping some of you would share your thoughts/memories on the following question: "What is your favorite/funniest memory involving elk?" There's a tight word count so I'm looking for shorter (2-3 lines) bits. I'll need...

    Wife and I have the September Cow hunt 9/13-26 Not the peaks hunt. I have been e-scouting and researching for a while, planning on making trips before the hunt chasing deer but this will be my first big game hunt in AZ, (Originally from NM). I am not necessarily asking for "Where do I go?" But...

    I just ordered a Primos Alpha Dog since the price looks like it came down a bit. I have been using a foxpro spitfire (?) with little success. I was thinking they have heard all of those old sounds so much they know to turn the other way. What are you guys running? Pros/cons, reviews, success...

    Hi all, I drew the archery peaks unit tag and have been up scouting a few weekends so far. Shamelessly asking here if anyone would be willing to share their experience in this unit. Anything welcome. Particularly the non-proprietary info like what the hiker/biker traffic is like in the unit in...
  12. Welcome & Orientation
    Hi! I lived in Tucson from 74-87, last century. I moved back last year, after about 10 years in Virginia, and 20 in Colorado. I got started in archery in 1980, and was fortunate to take a P&Y buck in the Tucson Mountains in 1981. I also hunt with rifle: typically in Colorado I hunted archery...

    So one of the first things you hear when learning how to find Elk is "Get away from the roads". When doing my desk scouting for Unit 6A, I found that there is a road in every nook and cranny of this unit and UTVs were all over them. The good thing I found was that a lot of the small fire access...

    Just thought I'd share a picture from one of my cameras. Didn't get to go on my hunt this year so hopefully he is still out there for next year.

  16. Community Campfire
    Paid a few hundred bucks for my deer to be processed last year and not looking to spend 4x that much for an Elk. How much you guys fork out to have an Elk done. My deer I just had some sausage, chorizo and Kielbasa (son loved this so guess I will pay for this one again) made. Thinking heck for...
  17. Big Game
    Well sitting here with my first Elk tag and wondering what gear I might need for this hunt. Doesn't look like my uncle will be making it so looks like I will be doing it by myself. Never camped in that cold of temps. Got muzzleloader mid Nov in 6A. What gear do you guys like to bring? How many...
