Cow Elk

  1. Oddly, after living and hunting in Arizona for over 28 years, I've never even put in for cow elk (always Bull). So, if a guy was desperate to put some elk meat in the freezer and wanted his best chance to get drawn, which area/hunt would you recommend? We've decided to only put in for cow, which taste better anyway. Thoughts? My plan right now is to apply for areas I'm familiar with that also have good tag numbers available.
     

  2. Sounds as if you picked the areas already
     
  3. 4a there has never been a time that I have camped in this unit that we didn’t see cows..never bulls thou Kinda weird

  4. That’s funny Dmoto, those are the first two I had in mind. No, Bearfoot, i’m Just familiar with many areas and wanted to check with you guys
     
  5. My lack of knowledge says go with the unit you know best.
     
  6. My problem also, Have hunted elk all over, hard to chose an area.
     
  7. Best chance to get drawn? Probably 10 or that multi unit mess over West of Prescott. 17a, b, 18b etc.
