Arizona Elk Hunt Scouting?

In our minds, there are 3 different types of scouting when it comes to Arizona Elk.

    • Historical Scouting– where you know of different bulls and you know the unit from past experiences.  Each year you check different areas that have held a certain bull or bulls during a certain time period.
    • Early Season-this type of scouting is to just get a grasp on what caliber of bulls are growing and where the cows are pocketed up for the rut seasons.
    • 1 week-the week prior to any Arizona Elk hunt is critical.  Especially, prior to the early Arizona Elk Rut Hunts.  Big bulls will rub of their velvet in mid-August.  These bulls will then travel 5-30+miles while searching for cows.

Below is a big bull we filmed in 2010, this footage was taken during the Early Season scouting phase.  We never found this bull again!
