Video: Hunting Elk in Arizona in “What Had Changed”

The Mountain Project has dropped a new video with hunters taking on bull elk in Arizona.

From The Mountain Project:

“Hunting is really a series of decisions. And those decisions determine the outcome of the hunt. Deciding when to shoot and when not to shoot is perhaps the most difficult of them all. And is something Cody Voermans doesn’t take lightly, especially when the only shot is a long range shot. It’s an ethical dilemma we all face at one time or another, but having the right tools and the right practice, makes the decision a little bit easier.”

1. Why do you love to guide where you do?

My family grew up in northern Arizona, as we have been in this country since early 1900’s the hunting opportunities are incredible as many folks have no idea how good the hunting really is especially over last 5 years as the drought is over and the populations of wild life have increased with great trophy potential for all species hunted.

2. What is your favorite animal to hunt?

We love to hunt elk like any one but truly the Mule Deer hunting is incredible here in northern AZ. The most over looked hunt opportunity is the Over the Counter mule deer hunts especially being able to hunt them in the Full Rut!

3. What is your favorite thing about guiding?

The opportunity to help others achieve their dreams of hunting trophy animals. As well as the comradery that is developed with life time friendships.
