    Howdy! I’m looking for a little advice (not your super secret spots!) in unit 5, all of it. My girlfriend has her very first general deer hunt coming up and my knowledge of 5a and 5b is only good for elk! Anyone have any hints they’d be willing to share? After a real cold and difficult late...

    Well, not sure if the draws have gone through yet but being my first year applying in AZ i dont plan on drawing anything so I'm focusing my planning & preparation on the OTC deer hunts. I think i've gotten a little carried away with my research & now have about 6 or 7 units I want to check out...

    Hi folks, This last weekend I went scouting with a buddy that has a 20B muzzy tag for Oct. Its his 1st time Mule Deer hunting, and his 2nd AZ hunt (Javelina). With both of us recently relocating to the area for work, this is a completely new style of hunting for either of us. I have a little bit...

    I have an archery tag out in 22 and am curious if anyone has seen any bits of rutting yet? I know the runt doesn’t usually start until atleast mid December, but I am just wondering if anyone has seen anything.

    Like the title says, first time hunting deer up north. According to game and fish they say the mule deer are found along the big canyons and in juniper pushes and chainings. I have the big canyon part down, but I don’t have a clue about what a juniper push or chainings are. Anyone care to give...

    Hi guys, I didn't get drawn for rifle elk or deer this year, but I'm planning to take full advantage of the OTC deer archery (hoping to go mostly after mule deer)! I've spent the few months doing a ton of e-scouting - I know boots on the ground is better but with work and the forest closures...

    I've been scouting an area for tagging a good Mulie. I elected to not buy an OTC tag because it's a new area for me and I want to get a good feel for the patterns and movements of the big bucks. During the scouting I found some very good size tracks. The knife in the picture is about 4" long...

    Welp, I finally got out in the desert after some deer. And while I'm seeing some deer, I'm only seeing Coues does. This is my first year hunting western big game, and a Muley buck has been my dream hunt since I was a kid, I only thought I would get my first chance for one in Idaho or Montana...

    Hey Everyone I've never hunted this unit but researched some areas to hunt like Skull Valley and Lynx Lake. Any advice on a good location? I'm going to try to head up and scout a weekend or two before the hunt. I was drawn for Late October/Early November hunt. Any advice appreciated! Thanks!
  15. Big Game
    Hi all, just wondering if anyone is a fan or has given the Over The Counter September hunt a chance for deer? Typically I hunt Coues deer in November and if I'm not successful then I take the bow out in December OTC for Mule deer, but this year I'll be very busy October through February so I...

    Hi everyone, I was just looking for a little input on a place where I can go archery mule deer hunting in Region 5, I know there are many so to be more specific I'm the kind of guy to hike miles into a spot if it means I can get away from all other hunters. So if you have an idea where I can do...
