2 Big Arizona Bull Elk on the Ground.

Early rifle elk hunts in Arizona are extremely difficult to draw & hard to book hunts for any outfitter or guide.   In 2015, we were thankful to be a part of a couple early rifle elk hunts & blessed to take a couple BIG 380+ bulls on these hunts.

Here is some footage of those hunts which were featured on ORGhunt.com‘s #HuntForMore Video series.

Ryan Homewood is a Colorado resident who has taken many elk, including a 350″ Colorado bull.  Ryan first hunted with us in 2013 & we searched hard for a 350+ bull, but we came up short.  We talked it over with Ryan & both parties agreed on some other elk unit choices in order to help Ryan accomplish his GOAL of topping his biggest bull.

Ryan was as prepared with the correct gear & attitude.

After a short 2 year wait, Ryan drew another late rifle elk hunt in Arizona. Ryan being an avid hunter, prepared himself by having the right gear, practicing, being in good physical shape & having a great mental attitude.

When he arrived in camp, we were ready to take another shot at a big Arizona late season bull elk.  On the second day of Ryan’s late elk hunt, we were blessed to find a big bull so we waited on him all day. When he finally came out of the cover late that afternoon, he was with a new friend and he was an even BIGGER bull. We rushed to the top of the next ridge, before Ryan laid down to take his DREAM Bull, it was an awesome experience for all of us.

Ryan’s hunt was featured on Episode 12 of ORGhunt.com’s #HuntForMore series.

In 2015, Joel Ziegler drew a rare early rifle elk tag in Arizona.  After some phone conversations with Joel, he gave us the privilege of assisting him on his quest to find & take a trophy bull.

It was an awesome morning for everyone involved. We were truly blessed with the privilege of guiding Joel on such a rare trophy elk hunt.

Brahma Bull

We found this bull a few times and decided to call him Brahma. Any guesses on what he scored?
