They’re hitting cards everyone! We have two elk tags coming for my family! Good luck!
Not an also ran this year!
My wife got an elk tag and my buddy and I got archery pronghorn tags! YES!!!
What time are these card charges hitting for you? Curious if it's still happening or already done?
Pretty much done. But it may be later for your CC company to post pending or credit limit drops
NorCal, mine came in around 9am.
CC just got hit! Wahoo!!!
3 of us got an early archery elk tag......just wondering whether it was our 1st choice or 2nd choice...it is all GOOD !!
Burned my 13 Elk points last year and didn't think lightning could strike twice. Thank god for Loyalty and hunter Ed points. Don't know which unit but all good.
Some of you may have WAAAAAY too much confidence in the AZ system. Don't start loading the truck yet just because of a CC hit. Year before last, I applied for archery elk and pronghorn point only. My CC was hit for the elk tag amount. When the portal information was uploaded, my portal said unsuccessfull for elk and successful for a rifle pronghorn hunt. Again, I put in for archery elk, and pronghorn point only. Final result from AZ Game and Fish was NO tag, and lame excuse that the computer had a glitch.
Congrats Jesse! Nothing for me yet.
BOOM ! Pending charge for $135.00.
See you guys in either 10 or 6A! Woot woot!
Congrats to those that drew! There looks to be quite a few already. I'll check later tonight. Very excited to get out of work and get home..... TODDY
Congrats fellas! No love for me.
No hit. Once again pain, misery, and dejection
Nothing yet....killing me. Should have cashed in on a rifle hunt.
Hope you're wrong pirogue! I remember when that happened though...but i'm putting on my rose-colored glasses at the moment for my rut bull tag.....I'll be p*ssing and moaning if you're right! Let's hope technology has advanced!
NADA....honestly wasn't expecting a hit. Congrats to those successful in the draw!
Proud owner of 1 more lope and elk point. Congrats fellas!
It seems that point creep crept up on me again. AZ hasn't taken any of my money today.
Looks like I drew early archery elk and archery antelope. I'm still skeptical that this is a glitch.
Have to think positive...I did look again just to make sure I hadn't been hallucinating...Lol
Of you’re hit, you have a tag. Not sure what happened with Pirogue but I’ve never heard of that happening to anyone else. I have no doubts it did, but extremely unlikely. Congrats Bowsiters! Don’t hesitate to look me up when you’re in town.
Congratulations to those that dew a tag! Nothing here for us.... WAHHHH!
It's obvious there is a glitch in the system, my CC hasn't been hit yet.
Up to 7 points now....
No way! I just checked my CC......got the big middle finger from AZ again!
Congrats to you sumbeaches who drew!
I’m hit. Likely November, but still long odds. I’ll take it!
Hmmmm, I’m still holding out hope!
AZbugler, I would have thought it was also unlikely, but it definitely happened.
One of those guys, early archery elk w/7 pts. Either 3a-c or 3b! Gonna pick up a lottery ticket tomorrow. Second AZ tag in 6 years.
DPowers, awesome! Congratulations!
Not lookin' good here, I keep telling myself I really didn't want a tag this year anyway.... then I get a slap in the back of the head from the guy on my other shoulder who's sayin' "yeah, sure.... what did you put in for then dum bass...."
It's always enjoyable to get on these type threads in the early AM and see the happy and sad posts.
Happy for all that drew--------->
Good luck, Robb
Zero for me. Always next time!
19 points for me, I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel
16 points ,,,now it's going to be a big decision what to do in the future ,,,do I wait for 5 to 6 more years now for unit 9 ,, or do I still put in for 3a ,I am 52 this year ,,,
Only 15 points for me and I thought I had a good chance this year but no such deal. I will have to enjoy the Arizona Elk hunt through the excellent stories and photographs of fellow bowsiters once again.
bowhunter1 - I'm ahead of you in age (54) and behind you in points (12). Nonetheless, struggling with the same internal debate. I had a plan until AZ put the cap on NR. Now, how long will I hold on? Should I cash in on mid tier unit (hunted 5B S previously and was great) or just rifle hunt? Should I keep going and bow hunt AZ for retirement gift?? Tough decisions
You guys with 15 points are you just applying for the BEST units in the state and that’s why you aren’t drawing? Seems incredible that you still have 5 or 6 more years to go. I’ve drawn 3 tags in 18 years...
you may be dreaming to think you have a shot at 9 in 5-6 years if at 16 points today. Presume you have studied the points to draw trend for nonres. you may be 12 years away if that soon.
Bowhunter1, easy choice if it were me. I’d go hunting! You may have 1-2 years wait for a 3c tag too. Have you considered unit 1 also?
For you dreamers holding out for the big stuff, I had 21 points going into the draw, applied for unit 9 archery and I got............................................0
AZ Hit My Card!
No pending charges for me, on to plan C.... Congrats to all those who have drawn!
Looks like a point was earned this year...
Good luck to all...
Hit for $650... its been a long time since last chasing elk in AZ. :^)
All I got was a 9 tag!!! Yeah Babyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
^^^ Just a 9 tag huh?!? Lol...Way to go G!
I didn't get any hits, but if I IDENTIFY as a hunter with an elk tag, the government run Game & Fish has to allow me to hunt them, right? Otherwise, they're violating my rights.
My hunting partner just called me this afternoon. We were charged Saturday night for a cow elk tag for the 5th year in a row. I can NOT believe it. At our age... 70's we can not afford to wait for a Bull tag. We would rather be hunting elk than roasting in the desert.
well if they are finished with the draw I have made another donation and acquired another point will turn 70 this fall starting to wonder if I am going to pass on before I hunt elk in Arizona. A NR with 15 points now
assassin, I sent you a PM
No luck for me but that's okay, I already drew Wyoming.
I'll still make use of my AZ license and go out and chase some deer next December...
Now I'll just be applying for NM long shots and I'll have to decide if I want to cash in Colorado points and try to draw or just buy a preference point this year...
Card was hit on the 2nd. Looks like I am going to either unit 9 or 5bs for early archery. Totally shocked. Only 7 points. I will be 63 years old. Probably my last chance for elk in Arizona.
Well I waited until last night to check and seemed to have struck out. Now onto "Plan B". Congrats to those that drew! TODDY
bartl17, yell if you need any pointers in those units.
Well another point for me ,was really hoping this year as the years are also creeping up on me ,I know how you feel elk assassin!!!!!
This time of year always amazes me. You guys are getting credit card hits and I haven't even applied in Colorado yet.
The hits are still happening. My wife and her friend got a hit tonight on the cc for $270. I was shocked!
Well thanks creed, you made me look again, only to be rejected a second time! Lol! Any idea when the portal will be updated? TODDY
Hit on my 50th birthday with just 6 points. What a gift!
WOW ! My wife just found out that she drew on a very late charge from Game & Fish. Happy wife....happy life!
Any NR out there that drew unit 9 with 21 points or more?
waiting to find out which unit. I thought we were supposed to find out today. Anyone know when they will update us on this.
Tonight at 1700! :-) Plus, you already know you drew the 'Mid-winter' hunt!!! Lol...Yes, I've been talking to Matt!!!
Sucks for guys who drew the mid-winter hunts, burning all those points to chase bulls after their antlers have dropped....
Dinkshooter; Chubbytuna on MM had 23 points to get unit 9 archery.
Yep! The wife and I are bowhunting elk!
Congratulations to all the guys and gals that pulled tags! Gonna be a damn good year for horns! Good luck and have fun!
