    Big Boguillas Gone?

    Lots of conspiracy theories going on here. Could be the ranch wanted to raise the fee's a very small amount. Could be the G&F wanted to change the structure entirely and pay the ranch one lump sum, and the ranch would have less control of who is there and who isn't. Very possible and it could be.

    State Land Shutdown

    Your tax's you pay have no bearing on az state trust lands, they are not public lands. Arizona is lucky the way they grant access to trust lands for hunting and fishing. In many states (including New Mexico) the state game and fish departments have to pay a fee yearly for access to that states trust land department for access for hunting and fishing

    TRAIL CAM BAN UPDATE 3/17/21

    Since i was asked this question by the person that started this topic, i will reply. Again most all of the developed waters(not G&F wildlife waters)are private property of the rancher that has the grazing rights in that area. On AZ trust lands the rancher owns all of the improvements including the road to the improvement. On public land forest service or blm, the ranchers owns the water improvement, not the water but the improvement to contain the water if the rancher developed that improvement. Actually it is trespassing to put a trail camera on the improvement without permission. When cattle come in to drink, and sometime get there salt and or supplement there, they will tend to loaf around the water for a couple of hours before heading back out to graze, and not all cattle come to water at the same time. Depending on the ranch and the cattle, people showing up in vehicles and putting up trail cameras or checking them will tend make cattle leave slowly or in a hurry depending on the ranch and cattle, a lot of places cattle only see the rancher on a horse, people on foot tend to scare them and they leave, disruptions on a continual basis effects how livestock do, be it weight gain, not getting enough water etc. Ranching and livestock is a complicated business, not a sport, recreation or hobby for 99.9% of all ranchers. most of the waters that ranchers have put in in the last 150 years is responsible for the wildlife population increase in most the state of Arizona. Read the book, Man and Wildlife in Arizona the american exploration period 1824-1865, G&F used to sell this book in there offices, not sure now. This is why on the Big Bo cattle have the right of way. Myself i would like to see trail cameras go away. It has gotten out of hand, nothing wrong with the way we hunted 35 years ago without trail cameras. technology has advanced many things hunters use to scout and or hunt, but you have to be physically there on the ground to use them, not so with trail cameras or flying. gone are the days when you could fine a unique animal that no one else possibly has not seen in a unit, now he likely is on someones trail camera. hunting is more interesting without the cameras. Each hunter is responsible for his or her hunting ethics. A few years back there was a business(not sure if they are still in business)that had a website that hunters could pay a fee and join, for the fee you gave them say your deer hunt unit that you had drawn, they would place trail cameras in your unit and send you pictures of the deer in the unit and where in the unit the picture was taken. Human hunter instincts are slowly going away which possibly could lead to the end of hunting in the long run. Just my opinion, but if this group that has spent the money to hire a attorney to write a letter to the Governor and possibly file a lawsuit or whatever, i would bet there motives for doing it is not because they like to just see pictures of wildlife, or they want to show there kids the pictures to get them interested in hunting. Again hunting instincts are slowly disappearing
