    White tail deer in Arizona deserts

    I was just talking to Marvin AKA stickflicker, a couple days ago about this antler I found in unit 17a on Juniper mesa 17-18 years ago. I have never actually seen a WT there but I know they are there.

    White tail deer in Arizona deserts

    Although fairly common today to see WT in the area, 30 years ago it was not so common. I remember seeing my first elk (cow & calf) in 17a up on juniper mesa in 1986 and thought that was weird at the time. Now it is pretty common to see elk in the unit. Used to be much more common to see a lot more mule deer up north than elk but not anymore. Some species have expanded and improved while others like the mule deer have declined. I was born and raised in this state and spent a lot of time camping and fishing. Started hunting in 77-78 but I didn't see my first elk until 1983. Arizona is constantly evolving.
  3. I hope your "friend" bought a lifetime az license before he moved out of state and then I would do what AZAV8ER said. Report back if any problems arose during hunt.

    Elk identifies as a Ram!

    very unique. Looks like he really had that ear pinned down.

    Finding ammo

    Just purchased a Ruger .357 at the Sportsmans Warehouse Ruger sale a couple weeks. I hope I can find ammo in time for HAM hunt in February. I'm not very optimistic as long as we have hoarders and ammo hogs.

    Sitting around and talking with old HS buddies is worth the trip. The fishing is just a bonus. Go and enjoy the fresh mountain air during monsoon. Good Times IMO.

    Public comments on hunt recommendations

    Cut all cow tags 50% and zero doe hunts statewide. Stop killing all the baby makes. Elk numbers have been on decline since 2006 and dramatically dropped since 2012.

    Terrible news. At least you always knew where he stood on an issue. Another reminder to not take life for granted. God Bless

    Field & Stream Article on Arizona Trail cam ban

    I enjoy running a few cameras and I will miss it but banning the cameras was the right thing to do.

    Finally raining pretty well in NW valley. A friend heard on radio that SE of Flagstaff got 4.1 inches of rain yesterday. That's crazy good if it is accurate.

    Nothing here in North Peoria. Just wind and dust.

    units not managed for older age class would be what I consider traditional units.
