I am new to Arizona and am looking for places to hunt. I live in Tucson and am looking for areas within 2 hours or so around. If anyone wouldnt mind sharing there spots with me or the basic area where they hunt that would be awesome.

First of all welcome to Arizona.

Not sure where you've moved from, but there is pretty much public land within 30 minutes from town in pretty much any direction. I know its a little vague, but the hunting opps are pretty much up to you and where you would like to go.

First things first I suggest checking out the az game and fish hunting unit reports. They have some nice write ups with suggestions on where hunters can start out in specific units.

Here's the link to the page.

As far as where I hunt, well I go to 34a a lot of the time. I spend most of my time in the northern part with some time in the eastern part of the unit.

If you need anymore help just post again or you could PM also, good luck, be safe and have a good time.

Every bit I can get only helps. Thank you! The past few days ive been walking the Tucson mountains and have found a few deer there but the only problem is there on the next mountain over and cant seem to get to them before they disappear. I was also told of a spot in 36b I will have to check them both out. Just curious but have you ever had any problems with illegal’s?

Not since I've been out. I've seen abandoned camps and packs around here and there, but have had nothing major happen while I was out. Where I spend most of my time I only see sign really.

From most reports they usually keep to themselves, they're trying to stay away from anyone they see. The smugglers are the people you need to watch out for, but they tend to do the same.

As for spots I've seen bucks pretty much all around the unit. Mulies in the low parts and coues higher up.

The rut should be starting up soon, I've heard the mulies are showing a little activity. Hopefully the coues are right behind them.

I'll be going out in jan for sure, so let me know how your doing. I would say your doing ok since your seeing deer. Most first timers in the state usually have a hard time just seeing deer. Keep going and you'll see on bed down and give you a good chance at a stalk.

Keep it up, you going to get there.

OTC Archery Deer hunt for 4A/B begins January 1st -15th. This hunt is for any antlered deer. I am looking for a hunting partner to join me on 1/2/10, 1/4/10, 1/9/10, 1/11-1/12/10. I know the schedule is odd, but its the only time I have to work around my and my wifes work schedule.
I live in Pinedale directly outside of my hunting area so getting to any location within the specified area will be no problem to meet or hunt. I have a quad so we can get to any hunting location on wheels or foot, either does not matter to me.
