    Willow springs camping

    There is not any overnight camping at willow springs lake. Day picnicking only. You might be thinking of woods canyon lake which has lots of overnight camping. When I fish willow springs lake I usually take the road to young and do dispersed camping.

    Sunrise 3D Shoot

    I wish they wouldn't schedule this hike to hunt shoot the same weekend as the bowhunter happening. I would like to do both but if I am forced to choose, I will choose the AZ bowhunter association shoot at mormon lake.

    I have better luck when I use them but lots of times I don't have time to set them up.

    spring turkey 2021 status?

    Went out this past weekend and heard multiple birds every morning and they would sound off until 8:00 or so. Only able to call one in but things just didn't work out. Winds would pick up late morning and the rest of the day would be a bust. Never got a single bird to respond to shock calls either at dark evening or dark early morning. First time I can ever recall that happening. Good luck to the guys going on the 2nd hunt.

    Reading yesterday's meeting agenda I noticed this guy had to stand before commission because he was busted for baiting: Ralph W. Dubois 2021-0022 Knowingly Take Deer Over Edible Substances (3 Counts). Possess/Transport Unlawfully Taken Deer.

    Ride Now

    I have always had good experiences with Iron City. Definitely a no-frills experience but that is the way I like it.

    Anyone been out listening for birds recently? Are they talking much? I plan on going out this weekend and practice my calling and try locating some new spots. Good Luck to everyone that has a tag this year.

    Hunt proposal, more limited archery units

    Since we are all just spit balling, maybe do some rotational Dec-Jan OTC mule deer units? Much like they do for Trophy elk hunts. Rotate a unit or two in each region with mule deer. Raise prices on OTC tags to make up any loss of revenue. I still believe AZ should not be offering any OTC opportunities for NR's. Make them apply for a very limited number of permits.

    Hunt proposal, more limited archery units

    I hate to say it but AZ offers too many OTC opportunities for NR's considering we have such a limited resource. We aren't like colorado with a ton of animals or wyoming that only has about 700k residents in the entire state. AZ has a booming population and a very limited resource. All these outdoor shows like Meat Eater don't help either. Where else can you go and have great weather, a ton of public land and buy a deer tag over the counter? I believe NR's are more dedicated hunters anyway. When they travel from out of state they are "locked in" and focused on killing an animal. They are more likely to hire a guide as well. Many resident hunters tend to be very nonchalant about it because they think they can do it anytime. I have no stats to support it but I would say if you took 100 nr bow hunters and 100 resident bow hunters hunting deer the NR's kill more. The bad thing about bow hunts going to a draw is that it will make hunters choose a weapon type. Face it, killing an animal with a gun is easier than with archery equipment. I'm afraid people will end up giving up archery if they are forced to choose. This will not be good for the local archery shops and archery sales in general.

    WTB shotgun

    Have you ever shot a 3.5 inch turkey load? It will not take long before you realize 3" and even 2 3/4' turkey loads are plenty. I literally saw stars every time I shot 3.5" loads.

    19a turkey

    No, but I wish I did. I think even I could kill one in that unit.
