One word of caution about Arizona unit 7 east though, this elk unit has some very high elevation elk country that is very steep and can present a very difficult challenge to trophy elk hunters who are not in the best of shape. Arizona Unit 7 east encompasses the San Francisco Peaks which are some of the highest mountains in Arizona and soar to heights that are nearly 13,000 feet in elevation. The San Francisco Peaks are a wilderness area that allows Arizona elk hunters to hunt elk there on a foot access only basis. Not all of Unit 7 east is high altitude wilderness though, there is plenty of flat and rolling cedar country in Arizona unit 7 east that can be loaded with elk. If you are not in good enough physical shape to tackle elk hunting on the San Francisco Peaks there is plenty of great elk country that is not so strenuous to hunt in unit 7 east. There are several different bull elk hunts that are offered annually in Unit 7 East. The early season archery elk hunts in the peak of the rut are far and away the best hunt for trophy elk hunters who are looking to harvest a trophy elk out of Arizona Unit 7 east.

The late season general rifle bull elk hunts in Unit 7 east begin the last week of November right after the late season archery elk hunts end. This can be a very difficult and very cold weather elk hunt as most of the elk tend to be found in some of the highest and most rugged terrain in unit 7 east during this time of the year.
