    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.
  8. 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.

    Still hunting the flats?

    Are you using open sights on your rifle for this type of hunting? The area I hunt sounds similar to what you are talking about, pretty thick with palo verde/cholla, etc. And is mainly flat with some mountain foothills, so glassing is tough. Was thinking I may have more luck with still hunting.

    Still hunting the flats?

    Anyone on here ever been successful still hunting the desert flats? I know sometimes when you jump up a mule deer they will stop and look back at you (unlike coues, they typically just run). Seems like you could possibly get a shot at one doing this method.

    Shooting of a road in AZ on YouTube.

    Flat brim hat or not, the dude still makes some pretty cool videos. Better than any of the production shows on outdoor channel with a million commercials.

    So is it still global warming?

    So there are quite a few scientists out there talking about the next solar minimum that is supposed to start this year. Maybe the beginning of a new mini ice age like what happened back in the 17th century: https://www.livescience.com/61716-sun-cooling-global-warming.html I say bring on the ice age, more snow melt for Lake Mead and the Salt river!
