    Love it. Helped on a private land tag last year confirming a buck was about 30 yards on legal property. He had been hanging out just out of legal range until he made one fatal mistake on day 3. The year before too.

    He is still around. On LRH often. Plus, I text him quite a bit.

    Arizona Mule Deer

    You just missed the AZ deer draw. It would have been good to get a bonus point. Some of the desert hunts can be tough. You need to have good binoculars, a tripod, and practice. A .270 Win w. 10x scope is plenty. OTC archery in Dec/Jan (2022) are great hunts. The Aug/Sept hunts can be brutal, and a lot of the desert units are not open.
  5. I loaded up some 69SMKs in .223 for a buddy to take his, and a couple of kid's friends, on the Jr doe hunt up on the Kaibab a few years ago. 4 shots out to 180, 4 deer. I don't see why they wouldn't work on Coues to 200. But I am with Casey, if you have a .243, I would go that route. I have seen big mulies drop to well placed shots in 6XC, 6x47L, 6 Dasher, 6CM, .243 Win, 6mm Rem.

    12AW snow fall and driving

    Make sure you call Dave. He is a wealth of 12AW knowledge.

    196 3/8". Biggest deer in the house by 20".

    12AW snow fall and driving

    Even rain can make some of the roads impasssble to 2wd. Get, or borrow, a 4wd. No use cutting off 70% of the unit because you can't get to it. Last year in 12AE on opening day, we woke up to 8" on the ground. It got WAY more after day 3. 2wd would not have allowed access to where we were. Snowed 2 days before, and started to melt, then came back in with a vengeance. Ice was everywhere after the morning melt off. Again, 2wd would have been a no-go.
  9. I wouldn't do another 28 Nosler. .280AI, 7SAUM, 7RM, .264WM, 6.5PRC (can't believe I just said that).

    Tag transfer.

    The tag holder's minor child or grandchild. Point guard it and turn it back in. Donate to one of several charities for vets, disabled, sick kids.

    A Bull Elk...in Roll, Az?

    Wow. That is WAY south! Along the I-8 east of Yuma for those that don't know where Roll, AZ is.

    Sad news- Hoghunter

    Holy cow. I went scouting with him a few times for his kid's hunts, helped him with reloading, gave him kids camo, etc. This is a terrible shock. He was a great guy.

    .243 for mulies?

    If you are west side, and want a hand, let me know. I have all the proper tools, and would have no problem helping you out. Home today through next Monday! Nice having a week off work.

    Hunting guide recommendations

    I heard a horror story about a certain guide up on the Bab last year. Not Duwane.

    .243 for mulies?

    Copper works fine if you keep to the distances where you retain the proper velocity on target as required. I prefer coppers to be moving 2000fps on target to open better. If your .243 is a 1:10" twist, you will need to shoot lighter bullets to stabilize them. I know you are 19, do you reload yet? If not, the Barnes LRX are a good way to go. If you do reload, the Hammer Hunters seem to really work well, and are very accurate. Just know this. Shot opportunities up on the Kaibab can be longer than expected. I would be prepared, and that means lots of practice, for shots out to 500+ for the best chances at big bucks. Sure, you could have a 50 yard shot, but sure is nice to be confident and accurate out at longer ranges. Don't take shots you are not comfortable with.
