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!

Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
