Arizona Guided Trophy Elk Hunts

Trophy Elk Hunts Arizona

 Often referred to as the “Disneyland” of elk hunting, Arizona holds some of the highest quality Rocky Mountain Bull Elk in the entire world. All due to high-quality trophy management of our elk herds by The Arizona Game and Fish Department. We are a quality-over-quantity based state. Coupled with great genetics, living in mild terrain with mild winters, our elk have a great chance to reach their full potential each growing season. 

We're "Elk-aholics"

  We pride ourselves on hunting only the largest trophy bulls that we can find each season in Arizona. We are one of the top elk hunting outfitters in AZ and have been guiding elk hunts since our inception in 1987. Our history and understanding of the species and learning the specific Units/Locations that they inhabit have allowed us to employ some of the most knowledgeable guides in the Southwest when it comes to hunting trophy bulls! Our goal is to only offer our clients the highest quality trophy elk hunt that we can provide. We are not as much concerned with the number of hunters that we book, but rather with the caliber of the trophy that each client harvests. 

  Most Arizona elk units are draw-only, which means tags for these units can ONLY be obtained through the open application period that is managed by the Arizona Game and Fish Department. However, Arizona also now offers over-the-counter elk hunts in select units! For drawn tags, the application period opens in January and closes on the 2nd Tuesday of February every year. All applications are submitted online through the AZGFD portal. Please contact us today to answer any application questions and strategies for the upcoming season. 

We offer fully outfitted hunts for all Archery, Rifle, and Muzzleloader trophy elk hunts. We guide in most elk units in central, eastern, and northern Arizona. 

Our preferred Hunt Unit List is below:

  • UNITS:1,3A,3C,5A,5BN,5BS,6A,7W,7E,8,9,10,22,23,27
  • “LIMITED OPPORTUNITY” UNITS: 17A,17B,18A,18B,19A,19B,20A,20C
