From “Daddy Day” to “Bulls Down”: An Epic Tale of Memories Made!

As soon as the Arizona early archery elk season was well under way and I began to see posts online from successful hunters in Arizona’s unit 23North, I began to reach out to some of the successful hunters to pick their brains about the most recent elk movement and activity.  So many of them were so helpful, offering information on the ones “that got away” but that I’d have no problem getting with my rifle.  One particular hunter I spoke to (who shot...
