Elk Hunting AZ units 3a and 3c

I have a Bull tag for the late November hunt and have never had the opportunity to hunt in that area before. Anyone out there have any suggestions on where I should focus my efforts?

Elk Hunting AZ units 3a and 3c

Welcome to BGH, I'm not much help for Arizona hunting, but we have a couple of guys running around here who may be able to give you a hand.
Thanks for stopping by!

Elk Hunting AZ units 3a and 3c

I've never hunted that unit, so I can't offe anything specific...

When you get up to scout take advantage of AZ's dry climate. Find water holes, meadows, canyons, N. slopes all away from easy road access. Elk leave such pronounced trails on their travel corridors here that you won't have any trouble figuring out where they move from water, to feeding, to bedding areas...

Good luck, I wish I had a bull tag.

Run the 300 road. It's on the southern border of 3C. Any further south than that and you're on the Apache Indian Reservation. Since the fire of 2001 the elk populations have blown up & the big daddys like to hang out on the res. but they do cross the fence. Find water on the north side of the 300 road and sit and watch. Do not camp on a water hole here though, that is severly frowned upon here by hunters and game wardens alike. Good luck on your hunt. You have my favorite elk tag. I've hunted those units a ton. Thumbs up
