By now, cards have been hit and dreams have either been made or crushed in the name of Arizona elk hunting. For those of you who were lucky and drew, a sincere congratulations is in order. Whether it was an early rifle bull tag or a general cow tag, elk hunting is something that will get in your blood and never leave. We’re all in for a treat. Yes, I was one of the lucky ones that drew a tag. No, I won’t be enjoying the soothing yet chaotic soundtrack of September, but I will be hunting bull elk with my bow in Arizona. This late archery hunt takes place in November and has really grown on me over the years as I’ve followed along with other tag holders. So, for this piece, I’m going to go through how I personally plan on preparing for this hunt as well as tactics that I’ve seen work in the past.
