    Snake Gaiter recommendations

    I got the True Timbers or whatever they're called at Bass Pro, my Gf was working there at the time, so I got them for like $25, think they're usually $40. I wear them chasing quail and javelina in the cacti and love them, have yet to get cholla to go through them They are definitely hot, I'd give the turtle skins a serious look before I spent the $40 again.

    Cartridge of the Week: .243 Winchester

    I love my .257 Wby Mag! But I just picked up a Howa in .243 Win to serve as a practice/backup/loaner/windy coyote rifle to supplement the Vanguard S2. Can't wait to get the Howa out and see what all the hype is about!

    AZ Black Rattlesnake color change

    Almost stepped on one in 5A about a month ago while walking to the Rim for a pic. Thought it was the shadow from a rock (I was wearing sunglasses) next to a downed log. I kicked the log to see if there was a rattler on the far side before stepping over, that SOB rattled 8" from my leg. It was like 60* at the time, so I think it was still pretty lethargic. It went under the log and out of my life. Worst part was I was ahead of my snake broke dog and Gf, I guess Boone reacted but by the time we noticed him, the snake already my its presence known

    Best 12x50’s (Not Swarovski)

    Never had a pair in my hand, but I'd be curious about a set of Mavens. Their 11x45 B.2's are $1100, and they have a demo program that can save you some $$
  8. I've been liking the outdoor pants by Wrangler, I've got them in long pants and shorts, they're light and breathable as well as wicked comfortable, not a bad mix for $20 For Shirts I've been liking the First Lite Wick 150 with the 1/4 zip (which is actually a 1/2 zip) and it's great for dumping heat on a hike I agree with many that camo itself it overrated, but disagree that that alone should negate people from purchasing some higher end products. While they are camo and that tends to increase the price, it's the materials and design that make higher end hunting clothing nice, not what camo they're in

    What do you carry with your 15x's?

    That was my situation, I went with a pair of all purpose 10ss before getting a pair of 15s

    Dog rattlesnake training, any suggestions East Valley

    We took our lab to the guy at Sportsmans, I'd take another dog to him no problem

    Are there Turkeys in unit 7 ?

    We went 1 for 2 in our camp. Bird #2 read the script wrong and circled behind us and had us pinned before he sauntered away. We then spent 2 more days looking for him but never connected. Only saw/heard 5 birds in 4 day of huntin, and no hens whatsoever

    Elevation/GPS on OnX?

    Not that I know of? I think it only show's the elevation for where you are, but that'd be a cool feature

    Are there Turkeys in unit 7 ?

    I'm with you man, I spent all weekend scouring the E side of the Kachina's and never cut a single piece of sign. Saw a ton of deer and elk, but nothing in the way of turkeys

    Recommend me some books/novels please

    x2 on anything by L'Amour. Also William Johnstone's series' "The 1st Mountain Man" and "The Last Mountain Man", they tie in together. As far as history I really liked The Apache Wars. https://www.amazon.com/Apache-Wars-Geronimo-Captive-American/dp/0770435831 I read it on a fishing trip in Northern Canada while I still lived back east and I loved it, it's 10X better now that I can actually put places to the names. Stolen World is pretty good too, it's about illegal reptile smuggling in the 60's and 70's https://www.amazon.com/Stolen-World-Reptiles-Smugglers-Skulduggery/dp/B00AZ82KD2
