I've hunted Arizona for a few years now and I have always found that the time of year is the biggest factor. Meaning whether or not it is hunting season:)

If it is hunting season you have to sit and call them in and ambush them. Your position is determined from previous scouting trips.

Or if you find fresh tracks or glass them during the hunting season then you can do a stalk. Basically stalking is figuring out which way they are headed and cut them off at the chosen (hopefully correct) spot.

They are way to spooked to think that you can follow fresh tracks during the hunting season and catch up to them.

If it is not hunting season and they have not been shot at for while then you might have some luck with following, very carefully, fresh tracks.

Hope that helps some.
