We are 3 days into the early rifle bull elk hunt in Arizona. Thus far, it has been one of the worst early rifle hunts we have seen. Almost no rutting activity, and people everywhere. Anyways, I am about worn out after 30+ days of hunting and scouting. Honestly, I think the archery hunts are way more productive for top end bulls, if you work your butt off.
