Me and my son both drew a Unit #1 Archery Bull tag for 2008, actually we drew one in Unit #1 for 2007 as well. I tagged a nice 6x6 herd bull, after 4 stalks and 11 hours later he finally gave me a 32 yard broadside shot. It was like slow motion when I released my arrow, he spun around and when he did all I could see was my white crested maxima hunter arrow buried to the fletching. When I finally walked up on him I was in awe, definitely hunt of a lifetime. After the drying period he scored typical 331 :wink: Setting my sights on a 380 bull or better this season:eek: Cant wait till September 12.......Below are some pics,the first one is me and my nephew when we first found him......the second is when I got him back to camp......... let me know what you think.

Nice bull and congrats.

I can't figure out why I've put in for 5 years straight with no luck and you draw out 2 years in a row in Unit 1.

You must be living right.

Unit 1

Sure is a pretty unit, really like the high altitude. Good bulls running around up there too. Drawing that tag back to back won't happen very often. You lucky dawg!
Nice 07 bull, only one problem............you need teeth in those photo's, smile! Have a great hunt.

No doubt......I must be doing something right......enjoying it while I can, probably wont see another tag for awhile......after last year I am just considering myself lucky to have a hunt like that and rewarded with a trophy.....if I was to die tommorow......I'm happy and thankful to the hunting gods :)

Now that's Elk country!

That's what elk country should look like. I got lucky and drew a 5bn tag this year. Like hunting a truck stop compared to unit 1.:) Still, it's good to get a ticket to the dance. 390 is definitely possible in unit 1 but not an easy task. Despite all the hoopla surrounding AZ bulls, 390 IS a rare animal. Congrats on getting your son involved, good luck on your hunt.
