    Bull shot... what happened??

    More to do with the angle than the broadhead. My recommendation is take nothing but a broadside to quartering away shot with a bow. People will crucify me for saying that. I know tons of animals are killed every year quartering to or frontal, but that is my rule. I killed a bull in 2013 that I watched come toward me from 100 yards. Stood in a wallow tearing it up 27 yards away, walked to me to less than 10 yards...never better than quartering to. I actually said to myself "Is this really going to happen? Is he going to be this close and I don't get a shot?" I waited and was blessed when he got nervous and jumped. Stopped quartering away at 25 yards. Dead bull. Just my personal rule. I would rather lose an opportunity than wound an animal. Crucifying commence.

    I don't know anything about the rutting activity, but I did see a pic of a nice 7x8 that hit the ground. It only gets better later in September so the archery hunters get the benefit of starting a week later.

    The official I didnt get jack shoot thread

    Honestly. it doesn't matter what the system is, someone will always bitch. The solution to drawing more tags is....put in for easier hunts to draw, end of story.

    I don't want to start an argument here but, it seems to me we hear guys calling for a waiting period every year now. Sure, some people get lucky. But most people that draw a lot of tags are applying for hunts that are lower in demand, the ones that the "trophy hunters" don't want, ie. late archery tags, cow tags, low tier or mid tier units. People that just want to hunt, aren't willing to wait 10, 15, 20+ years for a tag. In my opinion, if you are putting in for very difficult hunts to draw, because you want to shoot a trophy or nothing, you know what you are getting into. Aside from that, tags are getting harder to draw for a variety of reasons. The population in AZ keeps climbing and more and more people are applying here from all over the country(and world) for a chance at a big bull or buck. More applicants = lower odds. My family has had pretty good luck drawing tags, but I do a lot of research and try to apply for easier to draw hunts. If you want an early rifle or archery bull tag in the units that take a ton of points to draw, prepare to wait.

    It took 5 pts to get in the bonus pass, 6 pts to be guaranteed.

    He's an admitted thief and a serial poacher, they better keep an eye on him. Guys like this don't quit. Some just go to other states and do the same thing.

    2020 Antler growth???

    Too early to talk about what we will see this year for antler growth? I am not a weatherman, but so far it seems things are shaping up nicely for another good year. Curious to see what some of you that really look into this sort of thing think.
