Late Rifle -(Six day hunts)
Early rifle and archery – (Seven day hunts)
Arizona has long been known as a place to harvest giant bull elk. It is also well known for having difficult odds of drawing an elk tag. For the right hunter there may be another option. This outfitter operates in a game management unit that can be drawn with as little as 4 to 6 bonus points on the late rifle elk hunt. This outfitter has operated with an over 90% success rate, on these late rifle hunts, and each year harvests some of the best bulls in the state. This is one of the hardest working outfitters, we here at WTA TAGS, have ever discovered. His pre and post season scouting is unmatched – he lives in the mountains and it’s because of this incredible work ethic we feel comfortable applying our clients for this tag. On this hunt a client needs to be in good physical condition. Although the terrain isn’t extremely challenging, there can be long days on your feet navigating the checker boarded public/private land mix. Additionally, it is not uncommon in this unit to have a shot of 400 + yards. This is simply the way the country sets-up, so clients that are capable of shooting at longer distances, will have a much better chance at success. In addition, you will also have an additional spotter helping you locate game. This is a critical element to the hunt as elk densities are low. That said, when you do find them they are often bulls of very high-quality. The average trophy expectations on these late hunts is be between 310″-330″ B&C. However, almost yearly, several of our clients take bulls scoring 350+ making this hunt one of the very best values in elk hunting.
Each hunter will have their own wall tent equipped with a cot, mattress and heater. Bring your sleeping bag. Home cooked meals are served out of a large heated wall tent and something to look forward to after a hard day of hunting. As we mentioned earlier, this hunt is not for everyone, but for the right client wanting to have an opportunity, sooner-rather-than-later, at harvesting a great bull this could be the hunt for you. Feel free to give us a call and discuss this hunt in more detail as we have boots-on-the-ground experience with this outfitter.
