Public Land

Experienced veteran guides for A3 Trophy Hunts have been born and raised in the heart of Arizona’s top elk units. Their knowledge of the elk in their areas is second to no one else available. Each guide is a specialist and expert in the units they work in. Our guides hunt Arizona statewide and scout relentlessly to find and harvest the best bulls in any unit in the state. Each year, we apply our successful scouting and hunting techniques in preparation for your upcoming hunt. Throughout our scouting process, the A3 guides work hard to learn and locate the top bulls each year and plan specific hunting strategies to successfully harvest these special bulls. We do not just hit the old honey holes and hope for the best. This attention to pre-scouting has allowed us to book the statewide auction hunters for elk each year—as we leave no stone unturned in our annual search for the giant bulls on Arizona’s public land! Public land elk hunting can be very competitive. Our years of guiding experience combined with our aggressive scouting practices, assures our clients that they will be in the best position possible on opening morning. Our dominance in our year-round scouting techniques carries over into our hunting tactics. Our record has proven our clients harvest more big bulls each year than any of our competitors. In just 2019 alone, A3 clients harvested 54 bulls averaging over 360”! 23 of those bulls were over 370” and our top 10 bulls averaged over 408”! We also killed 2 general season bulls over 430” including an archery bull that will net in the top 5 bulls in the world. A3 Trophy Hunts guide service takes pride in keeping our clients in the know, from the time they book, up until their hunt starts. Our communication to our clients includes regular scouting updates, both video and trail camera pictures, as well as our assessment of range conditions and how they might impact your hunt. By the time opening day arrives, you will have a great idea on the caliber of animals you will be hunting. Our guides have grown up in these units and have hunted them since childhood. They are unreal guides and even better guys. They all possess integrity and honor their word. Our scouting program is longer and more thorough than any other outfitters available in Arizon —guaranteed. We truly do treat every hunt as if it was our own tag. We study the patterns of the elk herds during the summer, including rut and post rut time periods. This knowledge is invaluable to the success for each different season offered in Arizona. Whether you are holding a premium early tag or a late bull tag, let our experience work to your advantage. A3 will help you achieve your elk hunting dreams!

Private Land

We have some of the best exclusive private land elk hunting opportunities available in Arizona. A3 has exclusive access to a private elk ranch covering 65,000 acres that is equally divided between Units 9 and 10 with each side over 30,000 acres. Each season, we will only book 1 or 2 hunters per season on this ranch. The ranch receives a huge influx of public ground elk once the hunting pressure ramps up. The cow elk have been conditioned over time to filter into this pressure free sanctuary leading up to the rut. The side of the ranch in Unit 9 is the only private land hunt available in Unit 9 and huge bulls reside there year after year. This private property is a historic elk rutting ground and this allows a high elk density, zero outside hunting pressure and an intense rut experience for our clients. This ranch have produced bulls up to 414″ for us in past seasons and many over 380”. We hunt our bulls in a quiet and low impact manner and keep our elk on our ranch. We target only the most mature and high scoring bulls each year and allow the younger bulls to grow and replenish the herd. The genetics are second to none and huge, high scoring, heavy frames are the norm, not the exception.

Auction/Governor’s Tags

The Arizona auction tags for elk are the finest elk hunts available in the world today. We specialize in these tags and have been fortunate to harvest multiple bulls over 430”, including a 450+” giant that is the largest bull ever taken in AZ with this special tag. These tags are for the most serious hunters wanting the best trophy hunt that is available. Two tags are auctioned every year. Packages for these hunts are custom to the client’s needs. Please contact us to discuss the possibilities.
