Our Annual AES Elk Hunting Clinic is the largest one-day comprehensive training in the southwest, on hunting elk taught by Pro Dan Adler from Diamond Outfitters. Dan is on the Outdoor Channel and speaks all over the country. He is ‘best in the west’ when it comes to teaching you how to hunt elk. Young or old... if you are a new or beginning elk hunter or even a seasoned hunter, this is the event for you. Q&A with Dan, Vendors, Maps, Gear and more!
Our Mentored Junior Elk Hunt Camp is held in October and is a great place for young hunters to learn about hunting elk, safety as well as let our mentors take the kids out with their guardians to give the first hand lessons to help them be successful and instill ethics. We also have several other Youth Camps throughout the year, including Wapiti Weekend and Wild in the City.
Our Annual Arizona Elk Society Banquet has become the largest must-attend fund-raising and networking event in Arizona. Rub shoulders with the Who’s Who in hunting while helping the AES to raise funds for conservation, habitat and riparian restoration, youth camps and our veteran hunts. Great prizes, raffles (approximately 100 guns), and auction featuring the famed AZGFD Speical Elk and Special Buffalo Tags, and the Hualapai Reservation Special Elk Permit.
The Arizona Elk Society is partnering with several statewide conservation partners, including Christian Hunters of America Junior Javelina Camp, National Wild Turkey Federation Youth Turkey Camp and Phoenix Varmint Callers, to host a series of seminars, and mentored hunts for youth, new, and seasoned hunters. These hunts include Javelina, Turkey, Predator and Elk. Be sure to SIGN UP to get notices about these events as they roll out throughout the year. This is your opportunity to attend.
From wildlife conservation, to habitat and riparian restoration, to hauling thousands of gallons of water out to remote areas in Arizona for elk and wildlife, there is no better place to get involved and make a difference. You’ll get the experience in Arizona’s back country, learn more about Arizona’s elk and meet some of the top hunters and guides in the state, in the process. Volunteer today!
With only 2 year under our belt with this new program for disable veterans we have seen huge success in helping them find new purpose in their lives and ‘learn to hunt’ with the Arizona Elk Society. In 2017 alone, we supported and provided hunting experiences for more than 100 veteran hunts. Learn more about Hunts for Heroes.
