WHAT IS ZERO GUIDE FEES?
Zero Guide Fees is a simple enrollment fee of $350.00 per year until you draw your coveted Arizona tag. The Arizona Elk Outfitter’s Team will then guide you from 5 to 14 days on a fully outfitted 1×1 hunt with NO additional fees. When you enroll in the Zero Guide Fee option there are no guide fees to pay, ever! However, you will receive the full benefit and quality service that TEAM AEO has provided their clients over the past 25 years. Put your mind at ease by never having to pay expensive outfitter fees when you draw your coveted Arizona tag and unlike traditional guide fees your “enrollment fee” never goes up.
Currently a traditional 7 day fully guided 1×1 hunt with TEAM AEO starts at $6000.00. However when you enroll in our ZGF option you would be paying $350.00 per year. If the average wait was 6 years your total investment is only $2100.00 for a fully guided 7 day 1×1 hunt. So you can choose to do a fully guided 7 day 1×1 hunt the traditional way for $6000.00 or use the ZGF option for $2100.00. As you can see this is the best and least expensive way to hunt giant animals in the great state of Arizona. So don’t miss out join now!

How does the state application work in Arizona?
If you have never applied in the state of Arizona before but are thinking about it here are some things you may need to know.
- You must buy 1 hunting license every year (Non-Resident 160.00). This hunting license covers any and all species for that year.
- Once you have acquired a hunting license then you be able to apply for any of the big game species when the online application period starts. Typically the deadline for elk & antelope is the first week in Feb. and for Deer & Sheep is first week in June.
- Its important that you apply for a species or at least accrue a bonus point. A bonus point (or in laymen’s terms is “putting in more raffle tickets to increase your odds of getting drawn) basically is given to you for the following year if you do not draw for the species you applied for. Every year you do not draw the state will give you another “Bonus Point” or another name in the hat. Eventually once you have enough points built up you will get drawn. You can find more about how it works at https://azgfdportal.az.gov/
- If this is confusing to you and want us to take care of the application/Bonus points for you we can. Just follow the step by step instructions. We will buy your hunting license and bonus points or you so there will be no worries about missing deadlines or were to apply.
Do I have to be a ZGF member for a certain amount of time before my hunt is covered?
No, all members are covered as soon as they pay for their first month or first year. You will not have to be with us for a certain amount of seasons before you become active. It is possible to draw your first time in our system.
Can I hunt anywhere in the state?
You will be given a 1st & 2nd choice these choices must match the Arizona Game & Fish Application that you applied for or will be applying for. However ZGF can do this for you if you so choose.
Can I apply with another hunter who is not a ZGF member?
Yes, you can apply with another partner, a family member or a friend even if they are not a member. We still cover you hunt.
How long will it take to draw a tag in Arizona?
This depends on several different variables. Depending on species, weapon choice, unit choices and number of bonus points will effect how long to draw. The more bonus points you accrue the better your chances.
