Scouting is a huge part of increasing your odds on trophy animals, but big velvet bulls are not easy to keep track of. In fact, it is pretty much impossible to keep track of a free range bull. Bull elk can travel 5-50+ miles while traveling to their rutting grounds. Many Arizona bulls will cross over unit boundaries during this transition period.
Keep in mind, mature bulls frequently like to use the same general areas year after year, but it is NOT a given. This is where past knowledge can help you hone in on where to begin your scouting. Factors like feed and water will change from year-to-year, thus changing the landscape for a big trophy bull elk.
