The Arizona Elk Outfitters LLC Team of professional Arizona elk guides and Arizona elk hunting professionals will help you to fully maximize the amazing trophy elk potential that your long awaited trophy Arizona elk hunts offer you. Arizona Elk Outfitters LLC and our expansive team of statewide Arizona elk hunting professionals will also gladly assist you in applying for these trophy Arizona elk hunts every year. If you are fortunate enough to draw a tag for any one of the trophy Arizona Elk hunts statewide, Arizona Elk Outfitters LLC is one of your top choices for premium quality professional Arizona Elk outfitters and Arizona elk guides.

An early season Arizona rifle elk tag in the rut are extremely difficult to draw, for both Arizona residents and non residents alike, but they do offer the trophy rifle elk hunter the hands down finest opportunity available to tag a giant Arizona bull elk with a rifle. One of the main reasons that drops this early rifle rut season Arizona elk hunt down to number 2 on the Arizona Elk Outfitters LLC list of trophy Arizona elk hunts is that by the time this elk hunt rolls around many of the big bulls in the state might have some antler breakage. This breakage on the elk antlers is due to all of the violent fighting and competition that takes place amongst many of the trophy bulls while they are in the very intense stages of the early Arizona elk rut. Also, many of these trophy Arizona bull elk have been hunted and chased pretty hard for 14 full days prior to this hunt starting by all of the Arizona archery elk hunters. With all of the above being said though, tag numbers for the early season Arizona rifle elk hunts in the rut are very low so hunter pressure and competition is light. You will also have the incredible advantage of having a scoped high powered rifle in your hands during this hunt while many of the trophy Arizona bull elk are still bugling and very visible while chasing their cows and defending their harems from other bulls. If you are a rifle elk hunter only, and don’t mind waiting many years or perhaps even decades to draw an ultra premium quality Arizona early season rifle elk tag, these hunts are by far the best trophy rifle elk hunts in the state of Arizona.

Arizona also offers trophy elk hunters a mid-season rifle bull elk hunt that takes place in mid October. This mid season Arizona rifle bull elk tag is much easier to draw than the Arizona early season rifle bull elk hunts in the rut but, the elk hunting is more difficult due to a lot of the bull elk being in the post rut period and the bulls starting to move into their late season winter patterns. You can occasionally get on some elk that are still bugling during this mid season Arizona rifle bull elk hunt but don’t count on it. The tag numbers are pretty low for these mid season rifle Arizona elk hunts so hunter pressure is not terrible but keep in mind that these bulls have been hunted hard for a month straight before this rifle Arizona elk hunt begins and the rut is going to be over for the most part. However, if you do want to hunt Arizona bull elk with a rifle sooner rather than later, and don’t mind sacrificing some trophy quality for hunting opportunity, then you might want to look into applying for these mid season rifle Arizona elk hunts this year.

The last elk season of the year that Arizona offers is the general late season Arizona rifle bull elk hunts that take place in late November and early December. These particular hunts can be very difficult late season winter elk hunts but you still have the chance of tagging a giant bull elk on these late season Arizona rifle elk hunts. Arizona Elk Outfitters LLC and our hardworking team of professional Arizona elk guides have produced trophy bull elk that score in excess of 400 B&C inches on these late season Arizona elk hunts but harvesting bulls of that size on these hunts is an extremely difficult thing to do. Most of the big bulls in Arizona are going to have some significant antler breakage by the time this hunt begins and they can be holed up in some very rough and extremely steep country while they are hiding out and trying to recover from the extreme physical toll that the rut has taken on their bodies. These Arizona late season rifle bull elk tags are much easier to draw than any of the early season Arizona elk tags in the rut but, hunter pressure is higher due to the very high amount of tags given out for this late season elk hunt and the winter conditions can be very tough to deal with during this hunt. You are going to be hunting rifle elk in Arizona much more frequently by applying for these late season Arizona rifle elk hunts but you are definitely going to be sacrificing some trophy elk quality by applying for these late season Arizona elk hunts.
