Am I reading their website right? A cow tag costs the same as a bull tag, at $665, on top of the $160 license?

And do they still require that you buy the license to apply?

Yes & Yes Sneaky. You have to have a valid license to be able to put in for the draw. The cow elk tag for Non Residents is $650 from what I am seeing.

Yes on both: you have to buy the license to apply, pay the application fee, and if drawn even the antlerless tag is $650.

Theringworm beat me to it.

I would look at another state if you are wanting to hunt elk cows. Utah has a $10 application fee, $80 non-res license, and a $218 cow tag.

Iím building points in Utah, at the moment.

Reason I looked at Arizona is Iím putting my oldest boy in for a youth hunt, there. I thought Iíd see if I could get lucky in a neighboring unit at the same time. I ainít paying bull tag prices for a cow tag.

Thanks for confirming that for me.

The chance of drawing an Arizona elk tag with no points is low.

There are actually several units with decent to guaranteed draw for cow elk, even for a non-resident with no points.

Arizona juice is probably only worth the squeeze as a non-resident for a bull tag after holding out with points for years and years. However- depending on the dates of the youth hunt for elk and what unit you might be able to hunt some other species... Dependin on timeline maybe a Coues OCT rifle tag.

Heck-- I'd cough up the $160 NR license cost add a $75 mtn lion permit and go spend some time predator calling as well!! When I did my Coues hunt I killed out on the first day. I spent the rest of time shooting fox, coyote, quail etc. Had a blast!!! We saw lion tracks but never got eyes on a live one but they are all over, esp down south.
