ABOUT THE HUNT
Early Season Arizona Bull Elk Hunts:
The most exciting and active hunts of the year take place during the annual Elk rut of mid-September and early October. Arizona Archery Elk Season takes up a two-week section of this time. Following the archery season a one-week Trophy Rifle or Muzzle Loader hunt runs during the prime time of the Elk rut. The rut of Arizona’s Elk is unlike any other game species. Bulls are highly vocal and responsive. Much of our early season techniques are oriented around calling and glassing of large old age class bulls. It is a rush like no other to call in a screaming bull elk to mere feet in the quest to down a giant of the high country. Early Season Arizona Bull Elk hunts are highly sought after with low tag numbers, offering trophy potential in every Game Management Unit.
Late Season Arizona Bull Elk Hunts:
The Late Season offers far more Draw-Potential than early season hunts. Arizona late Elk Hunts take place from mid-November to mid-December. These November rifle tags are regarded as the General Season hunts. Many units have higher tag numbers when compare to the early hunts. Late season archery tags in November offer easy-to-draw hunts but are difficult capitalize on. With much greater success the November/December General Rifle Tags are a great opportunity to hunt winter bull Elk. During the late season bull Elk move off into sanctuary zones. These safe areas typically revolve around steep and rugged country. Long range glassing and good physical shape are a requirement for any late hunt to be successful.

About the Units:
Arizona’s Elk range across much of the Northern high country. Most Elk habitat runs from South East to North West their habitat encompasses the White Mountains, Mogollon Rim, Sierra Ancha Mountains, Mazatzal Mountains, Verde Rim, Anderson Mesa, and San Francisco Volcanic Field, up to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. With a wide variety of topography and habitat structure Arizona Elk Hunting is unique to the world. Our primary habitat ranges from 10,000+ feet in elevation to roughly 5000 feet. The chaparral and ponderosa forests compose most of the well know game management units.
The vast majority of Arizona Elk habitat is a part of the National Forest system. The public lands of the Apache-Sitgrieves, Tonto, Coconino, Prescott, and South Kaibab National Forests encompass the worlds greatest elk-hunting region. Public lands are unique to the West and access rights as well as unparalleled ruggedness of the area leads to old age class elk. The healthy populations are allowed to grow old, facing mild winters and great feed, Arizona’s bull elk grow larger than anywhere else.
Our elk herd is the direct result of hunter-conservationists in the early 1900’s. From Yellowstone National Park in 1913, 83 elk were transplanted into Cabin Draw near Chevelon Canyon in North Eastern Arizona. These elk along with subsequent transplants in the 1920’s grew to establish our current world-renown population. A truly awe inspiring animal, Arizona Bull Elk hunting offers incredible trophy potential with unrivaled landscapes and hunting experiences.
