    Well Co was and still is my backup plan if I'm not drawn here but its not looking good. The SE GMU's are closed down for the OTC elk archery hunts. 12 GMUs taken out of the availability pool from 2019. I guess those fires last year must have really hammered the habitat hard but IDK? Ill be...

    Hi all, I was able to tag out for deer in January and have had no luck in getting drawn for elk or sheep so I want o get my bow out for some spot and stalk.

    Hey everyone! Im only a couple years into the hunting world, but love it so far! Filled my tag on a cow elk last year and now I just picked up my OTC archery deer tag. Looking for some 1 day hunts closer to the phoenix area, units 20B, 22, maybe even 20A. Work and family schedule make it more of...
