    Saguaro Lake

    They are opening up the salt river for tubing on May 16th, but haven't heard a thing about boat ramps. My guess is they will continue to keep them closed, due to lack of common sense of the people in charge.

    Son's first javelina

    My son decided last year he wanted to go javelina hunting. I figured because he has already killed a couple deer with a rifle, I would put him in for the general archery javelina hunt in January. I told him that he needed to start practicing with his bow and be confident out to 40 yards, which he did. About noon on the first morning, I finally glassed up a herd of about 15 pigs. As we started to hike to an area to get up wind, we bumped 4 deer, which proceeded to run right into the middle of them and scare them up the hill. We ended up having to hike up some pretty rough terrain, but eventually got to a point where I figured we would be above them. Not long after working our way down, we ended up hearing them not to far away. After passing on a small one at 10 yards, he finally got a decent sized pig at 20 yards, standing broadside, eating on a cactus. He let the arrow fly and hit it a little back, but was able to get on it again real soon and put a finishing shot in it. Unlike his dad, he didn't lose any arrows or miss any shots. Lol. Rest of the weekend was spent chasing quail with him. Love spending time in the hills with my kids.

    6a Muzzy bull

    Good luck. I will be up there with my son for his hunt as well. Last weekend there were bulls bugling, but they were all very young. Hoping we can find something decent this weekend.

    Kodiak Flex Bow tent and Mr buddy heater question.

    I have a 10x14 coleman insta tent and a heater buddy JR. The temps this last weekend were just below freezing and the tent stayed very comfortable. I would say around 60 degrees. If you get the larger heater and get the hose to connect it to a 20 lb propane tank, it should be plenty to keep you warm. Like stated above, just crack a couple of windows for ventilation. It does have a safety shutoff if it senses carbon monoxide or tips over.
  5. I hear you. I'm going up to help out some friends with a deer hunt this weekend and then my son has a muzzy bull elk hunt after that. I will bring my shotgun this weekend though. Super distracting when there is quail all around while I'm glassing deer. LOL
  6. I have not hunted with a dog in a very long time. I do my best to take good in range shots and spend a lot of time looking for a downed bird before moving on. I lost a few birds due to hitting the ground and running before I get second shot off, but for the most part I recovered almost everything. A dog would be nice to have though:)
  7. Interesting year for birds. Hunted the last 3 days and limited each day, but found that the populations were very spotty. I would find an area that had several big coveys, and then less than 10 miles away where I use to find lots of birds, it seemed that there were no young birds and very small coveys.
  8. Headed out tonight and throwing a cot out in the desert. Hope I get woken up with a bunch of coveys calling:)

    Sons 2019 muley

    My son got it done on the second day. Due to the national forest service extending the fire closure in 17B to the 24th of October, we had to totally ditch our original plans and hunt some new country we have never been into. The first day was pretty rough, we only saw about 30 deer and the only 2 bucks were a spike and small forked horn my son was not interested in harvesting. Gotta give him credit for patience. Day 2, we tried some different country and had not even seen a deer until around 8AM when I picked up the buck about 2 miles out across a couple of canyons. We came up with a game plan, drove the truck down the hill, and hiked into our 1 landmark on the ridge, which was a lone mesquite bush. As we came over the ridge, we spotted our buck still up feeding and got into position for a shot. As my son was getting settled in, he saw another small fork bedded down in the bush right next the the larger buck, but the one standing was a lot larger. He dropped him in his tracks with a 320 yard shot across a small canyon. The other small buck never even got up out of his bed until we started making our way into the canyon. At that point the small buck and 2 other bucks, including a very nice 3x4 jumped up out of there beds and eventually made there way over the ridge. Wish we would have seen the 3x4 earlier, but my son had no regrets with the nice buck he harvested. It was a tough pack out, but my 14 year old hauled the back half out, over a mile through some rough country. I explained to him, they really taste good when you have to put that kind of work in.

    WTB: New, Unused Game Bags For Elk - CLOSED - GOT SOME

    I always go to goodwill and buy some king size sheets. They are cheap there and will cover a whole elk. Wash them when finished and re-use for next hunt. If you know someone with a sewing machine, they can be stitched up to make a large bag, or cut and stitched to make several smaller bags.

    Wife gets it done

    That's awesome and great story. The trophy is in the eye of the beholder. She looks thrilled and I'm sure you're extremely proud. Great job keeping at it.

    Utv

    Check out the reviews on the Yamaha Wolverine X4. It has 2 back seats that you can either move one or both forward, depending on how many passengers or how much cargo space you need. Very comparable to the honda pioneer but the price is quite a bit lower.

    Desert tourtuse found. Pictures added

    I know someone in that area that has a couple like that. I just shot her a text to see if she's missing one.
