    You can get OTC tags for turkey that are for archery.

    There are usually left over tags for turkey up on the kaibab.

    I'm think they are still processing charges, hope you get your tag.

    Also if you can put in for fall turkey bonus point , that helps your spring draw chances.

    Ok. Thanks for the info. I know I can get otc jave tags if I don't get drawn so I'm not worried about that one but I was really hoping to get drawn for turkey. I've never hunted turkey before and it will give me an excuse to take a trip to the Sierra Ancha wilderness.

    Great rough rugged country with some nice whitetails.

    If you can get some calls and learn some basic calling, turkey calling is really so much fun in the spring.

    Well my card got hit for $25. yesterday but I can't see for what yet. I'm guessing I got drawn for javelina, but not turkey.

    Anyone hunt 6A archery? I'm looking for an over the counter tag hunt from now to early January time frame. I'd rather not go for javelina, but I might consider it if its a good hunt. I just haven't heard much about any. I've never hunter here in AZ, so I'm looking to get back in to it.

    I've hunted 6a for archery elk. Good unit.
    Looks like archery deer is over the counter Dec 15-31 in 6a

    I would think pigs would be more in the southern part of the unit.

    If you've never hunter in Arizona buy the best optics you can afford.
    It's big country with lots of mountains , valleys and ravines.i


    There is a big buck in there your never gonna see with your eyes or shitty binoculars.lol

    I'll look into it more then. Google earth only goes so far. I have access to 8x and 10x auto focus Steiners and a larger 20-50 spotting scope, and have spent time all over, mostly hiking. Hopefully those are enough!

    I've been dragging my feet about getting my hunt on. I'm pushing really hard to get out before year end. I'll be putting in for draws next year.

    I really appreciate the info! I'm from Tucson, but willing to travel most places for good hunts if I can dedicate some time to it. I plan on being more active in this thread too!

Really having to work hard and scout a ton for these birds though. Did manage to nab two geese combined with the few buddies I was with. Got 2 snows so far (different days and locations). Got a bunch of teal, pintail limited out two days in a row with a buddy, and some other divers. Also managed to get my very first wood duck

    My Mossberg 500 pump finally took a dump by starting to hate the 3” duck loads so I picked myself up a beretta semi. Completely different world shooting that
