Arizona Unit 6A Big Game Hunts
Arizona Unit 6A Elk: Unit 6A in north central Arizona is home to very good numbers of Rocky Mountain elk and is also home to some very extensive Arizona elk hunting opportunities regardless of your weapon or season choice. Elk are found in good numbers and densities throughout this entire unit and all of its different habitat types, terrain, and elevation levels. Approximately 20% of all of the elk hunting opportunities that are found in the state of Arizona are found in unit 6A. Unit 6A is not generally considered to be a highly sought after premier trophy Arizona elk unit but this unit does and will continue to produce some giant bulls. This is a great unit to apply for if you are a resident or a non resident elk hunter that does not have many bonus points built up for the Arizona elk draw and do not want to wait for years and years to experience a high quality Arizona elk hunt. Most of the bull elk that are found in Unit 6A are usually in the 300 to 340 range but hunters who are willing to work hard, put their scouting homework in, and hold out can often be rewarded with 350 to 360 plus bull elk in this unit. Hunters who are lucky enough to draw either a an early rut season archery tag or early rut season rifle or muzzleloader tag in Unit 6A will be rewarded with a very good hunt with plenty of bugling bulls and good rutting activity. Unit 6A is a good sized unit and there are plenty of good areas to be found here were hunters can experience low hunter pressure and trophy quality bulls. There are also some “Quiet” wilderness type areas in unit 6A where all vehicle travel is strictly prohibited even when recovering dead and down elk. These areas can offer some high quality Arizona elk hunting but hunters who are planning on hunting elk here need to be properly prepared to do so. Recovering your elk out of the field can be extremely difficult in these areas and having access to horses and mules is highly recommended to get your elk out the field. Unit 6A also has some extremely rugged terrain that can provide hunters with great opportunities at trophy bulls especially during the late season rifle elk hunt in this unit but hunters also need to plan accordingly if they are thinking about hunting these rugged canyons. Horses and mules are also highly recommended if you are planning to hunt late season Arizona bull elk in the rugged canyon country of unit 6A. Any hunter who is thinking about hunting elk in Arizona is well advised to keep unit 6A in mind when applying for your Arizona Elk Hunts.
Arizona Unit 6A Black Bear: Unit 6A has an excellent population of trophy Arizona black bears and is one of our favorite black bear units in the state. This unit is loaded with thousands and thousands of acres of very high quality black bear habitat and supports healthy numbers of Arizona bears. Arizona black bears can be hunted with hounds or by spotting and stalking. Spotting and stalking these trophy Arizona color phased black bears is far and away our favorite and most used technique to succesfully hunt them. It is very exciting on these Arizona black bear hunts to be able to locate a food source or crop that multiple bears are feeding on and having the opportunity to be able to glass up and look over several different bears from one single location. Once a shooter bear is located the exciting stalk begins. Many of the black bears that live in Unit 6A are found in extremely rugged canyon terrain. Hunters are advised to be in the best physical shape possible if you are planning on hunting black bears in Unit 6A. It also pays to have help nearby in the form of extra people or horses and mules to recover your bear out of the field. Some Arizona bear hunts take place in warm weather and bears can spoil very quickly so be sure to have plenty of help available to get your bear out of the field as quickly as possible.
Arizona Unit 6A Coues Deer: Unit 6A has some excellent trophy coues deer bucks. While this unit does not have the high density and high coues deer populations of the southern Arizona coues deer units, it does have some very high quality trophy bucks that live here. The best coues deer hunt that is offered in unit 6A is the late December rifle hunt. The bucks are starting to rut during this hunt and the coues deer bucks can be very visible during this hunt as they are out rutting and chasing does. Unit 6A is definitely worth considering when deciding on where to apply for your Arizona coues deer hunts.
Arizona Unit 6A Mule Deer: Unit 6A has a huntable population of mule deer but there are very few trophy bucks and hunters can be very disappointed in a mule deer hunt here. Stay away from this unit if you want to do some high quality Arizona mule deer hunting.
Arizona Unit 6A Mountain Lion: Unit 6A supports good numbers of mountain lions and is an excellent place to consider for hunters who are wanting to do some Arizona mountain lion hunting. While mountain lions are taken annually by varmint calling and incidentally while hunting for other species, your best opportunity for success on a mountain lion is to hire the services of an experienced houndsman.
