This is my 7 Bull elk tag in Az. as a Solo appl.

Some early date some late date and even 1 Early Rifle tag! Never applied for a Muzzy tag.

Az and Wyo Bull elk tags have been very good to me over the years.

Good luck, Robb

Congrats Robb!

I'm expecting to draw but my card hasn't been hit. I just logged into my AZ portal and it shows my application as pending so I still have hope...

Great stuff Robb, good luck! I have yet to actually apply for an AZ elk tag, but the now 11 points in my pocket are starting to get warm.

Can't wait to hear about your hunt, enjoy!

Rob, I’ve had 5 NR AZ elk tags and I thought I was the luckiest non resident!! What tags have you drawn?? I’ve had a 22 Early rifle and 27, 8, 7W and 5BS archery. Almost forgot U also had a 13B mule deer strip tag. JD

Congrats on the tag, Robb!

Just a thought......maybe you could reach out and see if any Bowsiter would be willing to help you out with some intel on your unit. Maybe even do a little preseason scouting on it. I’ve heard of guys on here, doing that kind of stuff! ;-)

20-Mar-21
Robb, your luck is uncanny. Grats.

My card finally got hit sometime late Friday. I'm in too!

Guys who've drawn, big congrats! No love here! (grin) It's the only state I have points in! No sweat though, I truly enjoy the challenge of OTC hunts! Maybe next year!

You do just fine year-in/year-out in your OTC unit Paul----->!

My portal is updated this early AM and I got my 2nd choice.

Nothing beats knowledge and experience over the years, late date .

Good luck, Robb

Anyone else put in for points only and mildly panic when you saw congrats you were Successful on the mid winter draw only to click details and see it was successful for points only? No? Only me?

21-Mar-21
Congrats Robb!! Have a great hunt.

From: AZBUGLER

Wife and I drew archery elk tags in our favorite unit! Good times! I always put my whole family in separately in hopes that somebody will draw. Can’t believe we both drew the same hunt!

From: JLeMieux

Congrats guys! Points only here but it won't be long before I start applying for tags.

TEmbry, Same here....LOL

From: AZ~Rich

I’m a resident and again no tags! Going on 9 years since drawing for elk. It’s only getting tougher as more and more people want to hunt here. Even with a precious tag it’s looking more like CO with everyone riding ATVs on increasingly busy backroads. Entire extended families and friends are out scouting for a single tag holder is common. Places which were relatively quite are no longer so. Progress or regress? Certainly our hunt quality has taken a hit from what it used to be. Not sure there are any solutions just thinking that’s what we are heading towards. Sad. Good luck to all who drew!

Our clan did well this year. We drew 10 elk tags and 1 antelope tag.

From: Treeline

Was driving back from Texas and my hunting buddy in AZ called to see if I drew. He checked for me and said the website said “congratulations, I was going hunting!”

Pretty excited!

Then, figured out it was points only for antelope:(

Congratulations to the tag lotto winners in AZ! Good luck this fall!

21-22 ? years, I'd have to get into my folder to get the very first year.

Since 2014 (including this year ) I've drawn 3 Bull tags.

Good luck, Robb

From: Wayjames

That’s a tag every three years, very nice!

From: BULELK1

Hey Thanks!

I've caught a few breaks over the years though, 'USO' draw year I had 3* points and the first year of the late date hunts I drew with 2 pts and the first year of the 50/50% tag spilt in the non-ressy pool I had 3* points.......and drew Early Rifle hunt.

I don't have a problem with the late date hunts as we have the Wasatch Front bow hunts that run into December, so I have yearly knowledge/experience bow hunting out of the Rut.

Good luck, Robb

PS~~ *Edit and it's looking like 25 years as I have doc's saved going back to 1997, still not a bad run on Bull tag's.
