AZ 5b south

Which hunt?

5BS is a pretty good unit. It runs from thick pine forest on the W. edge, then drops down to the East into the rain shadow for more open Winter Range. Obviously you'd need to approach a Nov hunt different than a Sept Archery.

Good luck!

Ahhhh. 5B South, my favorite unit anywhere! Home of what we dubbed "Elk Highway". I sat down there one time and heard non-stop bugling for over an hour. This is the unit where my first bow hunt for elk occured and the first morning I hunted i made every possible mistake you could make. Consequently, at least that morning, I didn't kill any of the 50-60 elk that walked within 30 yards of me by 11AM. Did get one the 3rd day however. Don't have my maps with me but from the Highway, take 93 7.25 miles back in there (VERY rough road. This 7 mile trek will take you a good 45 minutes, and if is is wet you will need 4WD) and hunt the area on the left for the next mile. Have a great hunt!
