    New Draw

    Rifle January Coues hunts? wow. More tags for more $$$$. Looks like we are going the Utah way. https://www.azgfd.com/azgfd-offers-new-big-game-hunting-opportunities/

    Saw this on Instagram...what’s your take?

    Threshold is the worst option. All the units will end up closing before we even get to the rut. No thanks. Time for a draw. I'd love to hunt all of January with my bow with very little pressure. I agree with mandatory reporting. I'm hoping the e-tag option will incorporate that into a one step process. Punching your tag electronically should be the reporting. This extra draw makes me wonder if they know they will be going to an archery deer draw and need the funds to make up for that loss.

    Towing Question for Toyota Tacoma owner

    I have a 2019 DCSB auto. Pulling a 4 seater ranger on flat ground I get 9mpg. It will do it, but it won't do it well. I tow a small trailer with a quad and it pulls that like nothing is there. If you don't tow much you will really like the truck. A tune works well to get rid of weird shifting issues.

    Was this the buffalo incident everone was talking about

    It's been a problem for years, hopefully the G&F can do something to resolve it. Until then I will keep putting in for Raymond instead. 3 guides in a small area who all think they own spots mixed with DIY guys is a recipe for disaster. Proof here that the issue wasn't cameras, it's the guides.

    Muely or Coues

    trophyhunter's assessment of frequency I agree with, however, I'd take the Coues.

    otc changes--> increase in trophy quality?

    Cutting out a few hunts will always increase trophy quality. More bucks get older.

    how do these otc archery outfitters do it?

    Private land and locked public. Hunting harder than most and being out there more often.

    Threshold would be terrible. I can see each unit closing in December before the rut even kicks in. We wouldn't even make it to hunt the actual good rutting. I'm guessing they will leave it as is, but at this point I'd rather see the draw. I'd love to hunt all of January with limited tag holders.

    Youth hunt velvet

    Saw 18 bucks over the weekend. One had full velvet, the rest were mostly hard horned. Would love to get a velvet one like the one above. Congrats

    Youth hunt velvet

    Last weekend about 1 out of 10 were in velvet. I'm guessing by Friday most all of them will be rubbed.
