The Arizona Strip & Kaibab
Arizona mule deer tags on the Arizona Strip and Kaibab can be extremely hard to come by. Our hunters rave about our Arizona outfitter, and they always go home with a great trophy. If you are after a big mule deer, then this is the hunt for you. Start applying! Hunters can expect a 190″ deer on the Strip and 180″ on the Kaibab, but bucks scoring above 220″ are taken on these hunts every year.
If you are after a large, record-class deer and have the patience to apply for many years until receiving a tag, then this is the hunt for you. ~Russ Meyer
- November late hunt during the rut
- Opportunity Rate is 100%
- Trophy quality on the Late Kaibab and Arizona Strip hunts is VERY good.
The Arizona Strip (13A or 13B) Our Outfitter believes that these two units are the best premier mule deer tags in Arizona. The hunt takes place in early November. It is a ten day season and you can expect to see a 190″+ buck with the potential for a true monster. The density of deer is very low, but the quality is insane. Some days a deer may not even be spotted, but if a hunter is willing to spend all ten days glassing hard, a good buck will be found. If this hunt intrigues you, start putting in. It sometimes takes up to 15 years to draw one of these tags.
The sky is the limit on the Strip. The biggest buck we have gotten on this hunt was 229″
The Kaibab (12A West, 12A East or 12B) Expect to see a lot of deer on these hunts. This is a high density hunt. You’ll see lots of deer and lots of bucks. A buck scoring 180″ can be expected, but the potential for a giant is there as well. The late Kaibab hunt is a ton of fun. This tag is a little bit easier to draw than the Strip hunts.
