I hunt in this unit a lot (I live in Flagstaff). I am partial to the transition zone between the aspens and ponderosas (ca. 8000 feet). The areas around Kendrick Mountain/Wilderness Area, especially the south side have often been productive for me. No real monsters in this area, but you can't eat the antlers anyway, right? Another nice area is farther north on US 180 toward Valle (but not that far). Red Mountain is on the west side of the road and I've seen some very nice ones in that area. Good Luck!

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....
