1st Rifle: Early October
We all know how awesome the elk hunting is in the great state of Arizona. Drawing a tag here is certainly a special event. However, for the more discerning less budget conscious sportsmen, WTA TAGS recommends applying for our Private Ranch Hunt. This enormous, 250 thousand acre elk hunting masterpiece is home to some of the biggest bulls in the country. Also, drawing odds while not easy, are the very best in the state. Whether you elect to apply archery, early rifle or both you cannot go wrong. This ranch will normally produce some of the largest bulls in the state with the highest success rate for WTA TAGS clients. Bulls in the 360”+ B&C caliber are not uncommon. The terrain is completely reasonable and elk numbers staggering. Camp will consist of a mix of 5th wheel travel trailers and wall tents depending on which part of the ranch is being hunted. The food is plentiful and the guides are some of the best elk hunters in the world, who work as a team, to help ensure you have the hunt-of-a-lifetime.
