what is the strip? i hunt with a guy here in MS, jeff graves, sometime and couple years ago he drew a tag for the az strip. killed a monster mule deer. made a magizine i believe.. you can google jeff graves mule deer addiction and read about it.... but i always hear folks talking about how hard it is to draw a tag.. what makes this place so great and where is it located? how big of an area is it?

Far N/W corner of Arizona......West of the Kaibab, North of the Colorado River.........I believe it's about 5300 square miles of desolate juniper/cedar type terrain. Not a lot of deer (2000), but probably the best mule deer genetics in the country. Because of the limited amount of tags issued, bucks have a chance to grow older and reach maturity......add good feed and genetics and you have one of the best areas to hunt giant mule deer.

A dandy for sure.
