I did a quick google search, and found out that they do indeed offer over the counter licenses for elk in Arizona. I was actually surprised about it. Apparantly, they are for a VERY limited number of areas, and there is mostly private land and very low elk numbers in these units.
I could not find any reference to if it was open to non-residents. It doesn't say either way. Here is a link to the website so you can read for yourself.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
