Enter 2019. As stated, 2018 was very dry up until July. We did have a decent monsoon that helped the deer bounce back in body condition but this was far to late to help antler growth in the fall of of 2018. This was determined by the prior 6 months. But, the summer did green up well and the animals returned to health by summers end. They came through winter well and heading into the wettest Spring anyone can remember. Which leads us to today and the unreal hunting season Arizona is about to have.
A3 has been pounding the Strip for 15 years straight. We pour our heart and soul into the planning, preparation and hunting of this very special mule deer haven. Over time, A3 and the guides we are so proud to call our own, have guided our clients to some of the biggest bucks to have ever been killed on the Strip. From giant archery bucks to giant general season bucks A3 clients harvest more truly giant deer. We live here and our life is here. If you are blessed to draw one of these golden tickets, you owe it to yourself to do your due diligence in selecting an outfitter. Sales pitches and trail camera pictures are common tactics used by some to instill confidence and get hunts booked. Beware of this. We have always said... "A trained monkey can set up a trail camera and get pictures of big bucks on the Strip." In fact their are a few trained monkeys running around out here! But, it takes a well prepared and seasoned guide to help turn a trail camera picture into a dead buck picture with a happy client. This is where we have proved our worth over and over annually. Year in year out consistency is what you want to look for when selecting an outfitter for your Strip hunt.
We invite you to look through our pictures here, both older and recent, and see for yourself the consistency A3 clients enjoy. We spare nothing when it comes to success with our clients. We fully understand the wishes, desires and concerns a Strip tag holder has. We know that what our clients really want is an outfitter and guide that will treat their once in a lifetime tag as if it was their very own. We have a very long list of happy clients that have trusted us previously and in turn have had their dream hunt materialize before their eyes. The Strip hunt is never easy, even under the best of conditions. Under hard conditions, unprepared guides wither and wilt and their true lack of preparation is on full display. A3 doesn't have these issues. We scout the entirety of both 13A and 13B each and every year. This means that no matter what the hunt throws at us we are prepared to adapt and overcome. We always find more giant bucks than we have clients. Many years we find 5 times the number of giant bucks than hunters we have to hunt them. This means that every client has bucks, backup bucks and backup backup bucks to hunt, all of which are huge. This allows us to switch gears and bucks on a dime during the hunt if for any reason we need too.
