    Credit card hits

    Was bummed b/c did not get a cc hit yesterday all day. Checked one more time this afternoon and got hit for turkey now I’m pumped. If you didn’t get hit yesterday check one more time b/c mine was delayed quite a bit

    Lower Lake Mary or Ashhurst lake in mid October?

    Ended up going to Ashurst and fished about 3 hours in the morning. Caught 4 rainbows about 12-14" on the chartreuse garlic powerbait. Was letting my 4 year old son try to get the hook out on his own on the last one but he dropped the fish out of his hands and it flipped back into the water and got away. The bites were constant but had trouble hooking them. Going to bring some treble hooks next time I go so they won't keep stealing the bait.

    buck pics in neighborhood

    This buck obviously doesn't mind hanging around the houses/golf courses. Pics taken in a neighborhood in Marana a couple days ago.

    Lower Lake Mary or Ashhurst lake in mid October?

    Thanks for the info guys. Will try Ashurst and Kaibab. We’re all pretty excited about fishing up there, not much water down here in Marana.
  6. Taking my 7 and 4 year old fishing when we go up to Flagstaff in a few weeks. For anyone that has fished both lakes, which in your opinion would be better for trout fishing action for the kids that time of year?

    Leftover tags Tucson office

    Haha yeah that’s what I figured. Wasn’t that excited about giving the g&f more money anyways just for leftovers.

    Leftover tags Tucson office

    Anyone know if there is usually a line of people out the door at the Tucson g&f office the morning they start selling leftover deer tags?

    Activists in the draw

    I mean like enter the draw and if they get a tag then they pay for it and don’t hunt. I’m sure there are plenty of rich liberals out there that do it to make themselves feel good

    Activists in the draw

    I heard that about 20% of tags in the draw are bought by wildlife activists trying to prevent animals from being killed, then they just throw the tags away. Any truth to that?

    Hunting around Colorado Springs

    The springs is awesome, s stationed there at fort Carson for 2 years . Recently visited seems like homeless population had gone up. There are a ton of Mule deer around town seen some big bucks crossing the rte 24 to woodland park. A little too cold for me there though. Winters can drag on into May...

    Would you take young kids shed hunting?

    That’s kind of where I’m at, can’t stop living life because you might get bit by a snake. It’s like a “what if the sky falls” type of thing. Definitely going to keep taking them dove hunting also they had a blast doing that.
  14. Want to take my 6 and 4 year old out in the desert shed hunting in the mornings but am freaked out about one of them steppin on a rattlesnake this time of year. Took them dove hunting with me last September and we ran into a 4 foot western diamondback. Had to dispatch the snake with my 12 gauge but haven’t taken the kids in the desert during warm weather since. I know it’s rare to get bit by one but would never forgive myself if it did happen to one of my kids.
