  1. Who do I contact to discuss terms to be a sponsor?

  2. Hey All, I was the lead editor for the 2020 edition of the Records of Arizona Big Game. This was the Golden Anniversary edition since it has been 50 years since the recordbook was established in 1970. This is the oldest running recordbook in the United States and this latest edition is a great one (if I do say so myself!). We decided to do full color and it's loaded with hunt stories, tributes to wildlife conservationists that we have lost since the last edition, several thought-provoking articles and a bunch of great photos of spectacular animals. If you would like to purchase a copy, it's available on the Arizona Wildlfe Federation's website: https://azwildlife.org/Sys/Store/Products/240803 I know several of you collect specific book numbers, and we try to hold those numbers every edition for you, but it's getting harder to hold the numbers as we sell more and more books, so please, if there is a certain number you have been collecting for years, protect it by ordering today! Thanks! Amanda FINAL_WITH_NEW_LOGO_63149_AZ_Wildlife_book_jacket.pdf

    What is with all these spam posts?!

    My software license for spam defense expired due to a credit card I had on file that expired....got that updated last night....seems to have fixed the issue. Sorry for the inconvenience!
  4. Darren Freestone has created another great calendar for us Coues fans! Each month features an excellent Coues Buck photo in addition to moon phases and any Arizona hunt application deadlines. Darren has been making these calendars annually for many years now and they are always great. They make great gifts for your hunting buddies! Thanks Darren for another great calendar! Unfortunately, I am having issues with my regular CouesWhitetail Store, so I put these calendars for sale in my Etsy store for now. Price includes shipping. My Etsy store isn't really a hunting store, but has a bunch of my night sky photography and you might find some nice gifts for your wife there! Hopefully I will be designing some hunting apparel there, but don't have any yet in the store. Free shipping. link where you can purchase the calendar in my Etsy Store: https://moorswildlife.etsy.com/listing/1582691588 and this second link is to my main Etsy store where you can view all my items...in case you are interested. https://moorswildlife.etsy.com

    Tony Mandile - Outdoor Writer

    Tony Mandile was a long-time contributor to this forum. He passed away yesterday morning from complications from COPD, Covid and an infection he got while at the hospital. His wife, Ellen, also got sick about the same time and spent time in the hospital, but is recovering at home. His family says he did not wish to hold a service, but I wanted to share with you all some more about his background. Tony went by the handle Outdoor Writer in this forum as well as other hunting forums. He made a living as a professional write for almost 40 years and he was a wealth of knowledge about the outdoors. I enjoyed my conversations with him and he will be missed. Tony and his wife attended some of our CWT campouts so many years ago. In addition to being a hunter, he was an outstanding photographer and he enjoyed cooking some excellent meals, which he often shared on Facebook. Many of you have enjoyed the book he co-wrote with Duwane Adams, "How to Hunt Coues Deer". He hunted and fished in 39 states and 10 Canadian provinces. He also hunted and fished in Africa, New Zealand and Mexico. Mandile began a part-time writing career in 1969 and has been a full-time freelance outdoor writer/photographer for 38 years. His 30-year active membership in the Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA) included three years on the board of directors. He also served on the board of the Western Outdoor Writers (WOW) and the Professional Outdoor Media Association (POMA), which he helped create in 2005. He was a contributing editor for ARIZONA HUNTER & ANGLER magazine for 10 years, and wrote seven years as the Arizona Editor for OUTDOOR LIFE magazine. Mandile wrote his book -- HOW TO HUNT COUES DEER -- with noted guide Duwane Adams in 2003, and the Arizona Game & Fish Commission selected him as "Outdoor Writer of the Year" for 2011. More than 2,100 of his articles and 1,300 of his photos (50 covers) have appeared in OUTDOOR LIFE, FIELD & STREAM, SPORTS AFIELD, CABELA'S OUTFITTER JOURNAL, PETERSEN'S HUNTING, PETERSEN'S FISHING, AMERICAN HUNTER (NRA), DEER HUNTING, ROCKY MOUNTAIN GAME & FISH, CALIFORNIA G&F, WASHINGTON-OREGON G & F, ARIZONA HIGHWAYS, NORTH AMERICAN HUNTER, WHITETAILS UNLIMITED, NORTH AMERICAN WHITETAIL, OUTDOOR PHOTOGRAPHERS BIBLE, PENNSYLVANIA ANGLER, ROCKY MOUNTAIN SPORTSMAN, WESTERN OUTDOORS, BOWHUNTING WORLD, SOUTHWEST SPORTSMAN, SAFARI, ARIZONA WILDLIFE VIEWS, ARIZONA HUNTER & ANGLER, OUTDOORS UNLIMITED, several books and a few dozen other outdoor, conservation and travel publications. Rest in Peace Tony.

    Coatimundi - Chupacabra!!!

    Had one in our backyard a couple days ago! That was a first time getting one in the yard and we have lived here about 30 years! Probably a young male wandering and attracted to some of the water and fruit we had in the yard. PXL_20211017_164543849~2.mp4
