I can't believe someone is spreading any and all secrets of upping your odds to draw a tag to people that are too lazy to do the research themselves. Just to get people to listen to his podcast. That's what's unbelievable.


#794273 Not Closing the Rim?!?!

Posted by bonecollector777 on May 23 2018 - 11:30 AM

Another big problem is that there are a ton of hispanics who love to go camping and on a weekend like this they are everywhere.  Lots of them dont speak english and I highly doubt the spanish radio stations or Telemundo talk about this at all.  So lots of them probably have no idea. 

Racist. .


#794272 Not Closing the Rim?!?!

Posted by bonecollector777 on May 23 2018 - 11:29 AM

the entire rim is closed this morning from camp verde to woods canyyon and from woods canyon to lakeside.

Not exactly true. Woods canyon, willow springs, bear canyon area is still open. Apache sitgreaves left north of 260 open. Might as well start a thread where we guess the date and time of when the fire breaks out up there. Kind of like the draw results post.

I called and asked the forest service in Springerville and they said as long as you have a hunting license your fine. You can hunt

that's for stage 2. If its closed definitely cant just go hunt.


#794122 Wild Horses???

Posted by bonecollector777 on May 22 2018 - 12:23 PM

Yes if any horse gets loose and its owner doesnt attempt to get it back they are breaking the law and it is now feral and if I had legal permission I'd shoot every last living horse out there and then go home and sleep like a baby.

Stage 2 you're fine to hunt. Closures obviously no because you can't even be in the forest so yeah you lose your chance to hunt along with your bonus points. But I'd say if it's still so dry you cant hunt in September then most likely everything has either died or moved out of the country looking for water. So it will save you from wasting your time.

Guess I don't see the connection with cutting your own trees and a kid starting a forest fire with fireworks?

Cant help there. Odds for sheep are tough enough, cant post it on the internet. Jay Scott's doing his best to tell everyone about it though so go and apply for those units he told everyone else to apply for.

Funny how some are fine with denying access to our puplic lands with the hope of not burning our public ands but aren't okay with allowing some other opportunities for people to harvest our wildlife with the hope of preserving ur ability to continue to do the same. Hmmm.... That's a head scratcher.

If you want to know what 22 and 24b offers contact Tim Downs or Bob Khyn. They're in there every week.

The few folks who adhere to policy--Fire Restrictions--should not have an issue being out and about on our public lands . It is the select few moron's-- for lack of better wording--that will change our public lands  for our kid's and whomever just for the fact that they are moron's .
Done venting ----if you are a moron stay the heck home !!!

And how exactly can you decifer who is the moron and who isnt? You cant until it's too late so that's why its shut off to everyone.

If you know you're applying for 22 and 24b why are we even having this conversation? I asked a legitimate question as to how old you are and how long you think you can still hit the mtns. If you're 75 about to die then best be applying for a lesser quality unit. If you're 50 and in good shape and have another 20 years in you then stick with 22 and 24b and you'll draw it eventually even if it takes 10 years. But if all 60 or whatever people with max are going for 3 tags in 2 units you're in for a long wait.


#793720 Stage 3 fire restrictions

Posted by bonecollector777 on May 19 2018 - 07:32 PM

Just burn it all down and let's start over...

isnt it not burning naturally the reason these so much fuel in the first place? Its hard to understand that the small town folks seem to think only they are responsible enough to use the forest. The rest of us are the tax base that pays the lions share of operations and maintenance cost right?
If we start a fire here it burns our house down. It doesnt burn yours down. So naturally those that have more to lose than just the trees are going to be more careful. And were more inclined to want it closed so there isnt a fire no matter who starts it. Also last I checked when the forest closes we all are locked out of it so not like they are letting locals use it and out of towners can't.

That feel when a lady from the valley started the Chediski Fire and the guys that started the wallow fire are from the Gila VALLEY according to you. A better description would have been a flatlander (anyone from south of the rim in AZ)wont follow the rules because the ones that have fires dont give a F because they can just go home and not worry about it.

if i thought i was gonna die and the only way out was to start a signal fire id make a rager like that lady did. lol the gila valley? two 500k acre fires started by small town people, just saying. 
Small town has nothing to do with appreciating the forest and wanting to protect it. And an Indian wanting to make a buck doesnt exactly fall under the category of someone that appreciates the forest and wants to protect it. I'd guarantee statistically most human caused fires in AZ are from people that live off the rim.
