Arizona Wild Fires

Arizona is under siege by the ever growing wild fires. Please don’t be alarmed the areas we hunt have not been affected by these fires. The horse shoe 2 fire is burning in the chricahua mountains but has not burned the lands we will be hunting. As a matter of fact it has pushed more animals into the areas we will be hunting in January.

Arizona Wild Fires

Arizona Is in extreme drought at this time and the wild fires are devastating areas in the south and northern portions of the state. Please don’t be concerned if you have a hunt booked with us .The areas we hunt are not at this time being affected by these wild fires.

2010 Rifle Coues Deer Hunt Success. With More to Come !!!!!!!

Ending the season strong!

The early archery season ended and now were gearing up for the Arizona Archery Elk season. The early hunts took place over the past two weeks, we had a total of four clients in camp two the first week and two the second. Unfortunately none of the clients harvested Coues deer , but they all had shot opportunities , the four clients in camp took a total of ten shots. We all had a great time and made multiple stocks per day. On average we were seeing 20 bucks per day and the best day was 26 bucks

Almost over before it began

I will have to say things have been going very good yesterday we dropped off two clients and picked up one. Larry and I got to camp and he did a bit of shooting , and shot very well, I then decided to take him out for a short trip to give him an idea of where we would be hunting so he would get a feel of what he was in for . I stopped and glassed a creek bottom that we have been hunting all week and immediately glassed up 5 bucks . we began our stalk both of us were in shorts he was wearing a bright orange shirt and I was wearing a almost white shirt so I knew we were going to stick out in the bright green grass. to make a long story short we got within 20 yards to the bucks as they fed in the bottom . we couldn’t get a shot due to the tall grass and they began feeding away from us. we crawled a little closer and got busted by one of the five . At this point I decided we better make it happen I ranged one of the larger bucks 90″+ at 41 yards only to get a deflection off small limb right in front of us . too bad it was almost over before it even began .
