Jeff Penny and his good friend Andy Hampton came from Yuma to hunt with the AZ Ground Pounders Outfitters In January 2011. Cash and Steel knew Jeff had a good chance to kill giant Tom that had been trailed the week before the hunt . On the first morning of the hunt Cash and Steel struck a track that matched the Tom that Jeff was looking for. After a few hours of trailing the Giant Tom was bluffed by the AZ Ground Pounders hounds. Jeff made a great shot on the beautiful Tom and his 2011 Arizona Big Game Super Raffle Tag was filled with one of the biggest Toms ever caught by the AZGP guides. The Lion green scored just under 15 inches and was GIANT BODIED TOM. Congrats to Jeff on his Trophy Tom

Uncle Bill Armstrong as he is known to the AZ Ground Pounders Outfitters along with his brother Jimbo on his 2011 early Coues hunt, found and killed this monster buck. About 15 minutes after first light Jimbo glassed up a group of mule deer bucks. As soon as they could turn to look Bill found this monster 4x4 buck. This buck had good length on all of his points was heavy at the bases. Bill decided that he was the one but he also decided that he would finish his breakfast burrito before he would shoot him. Jimbo and Bill pulled a stalk on the buck and one 230 yard shot from Bill's .257 Weatherby Mag. put the buck down. Both Bill and Jimbo had agreed that the buck would go high one teens to low one twenties but were in for a surprise when they put their hands on him. He scored 131 3/8ths gross. Great job on a monster buck for two of the original AZ Ground Pounders

Levi Armstrong recently took Dani Leas on her first rifle bull elk hunt. The bull ended up being a world class trophy and the bull of a lifetime. Steel Armstrong helped to find this giant. The story was recently featured in Elk Hunter Magazine. The typical 6x6 bull went 386 3/8th and was one of the biggest bulls killed in 2011. Thanks to Mick Paegler and Luke Weisser for helping get the job done. Great job Dani !!!!!!!
