Default AZ Coues Hunt

In January, Iím heading to Arizona for a coues hunt and wanted to see if anyone knew anything about units 21 & 22? Looking for overall quality and if there were better units in that part of AZ.

Is this a DIY hunt or are you using an outfitter? Coues deer is on my bucket list. How much was the tag and license?

BTW, GOOD LUCK!

As a NR youíre forced to buy a hunt/fish license and I put in for a javelina tag also. The archery deer tag is OTC so, all in itís costing me $575.
Yes, itís a DIY Hunt. A buddy and I are backpacking the country and will camp as needed out there for a week or so.

That's the kinda hunt I'm looking for. Probably would do a rifle hunt the first time though. Is it an archery only area or just late season archery?

Yea, it’s a late season archery season, I didn’t want to wait for a draw. I’ve always wanted to to hunt coues deer and I’m working on the whitetail slam.

Weíll be in my buddies Z71 so Iím not to worried about clearance as much as what type of tire heís running. Iíve had issues in the past with thin side walls and punching a hole in the tires while in rocky terrain.

I was running pathfinders on mine, as long as you are driving cautiously yall should be ok. The area I sent you has roads that you can do 50 down, and some you can only do 10 down.

I'd love to do the OTC but it looks like a super tough hunt for archery. On the list!

From what I have read you can buy your hunting license, OTC archery tag, and then put in for the draw the next season and you dont have to purchase the hunting license again since its good for 365 days. Not 100% on that, but I think I read that right.

The thing to check on is there extra tags that nobody drew on. There is a lot of that, keeps you from buying your license until you know you have a tag. And yes, good for 365 from date of purchase. They also do day license, 20 bucks a day

Take plastic baggies to put your license in, they do a paper license and tag system that is all hand written (unless that has changed in the past two years). I had a tag get destroyed from a leaking water bottle.

Not crazy hard to set up. They have 3 over the counter bow seasons per year. Starts in Jan, then again in August, then again in December. The guys that are going in Jan can go in august or december as well (if they don't tag out)
