    Az 6a archery

    Hunted the unit several times, be aware if you find a lot of bull’s right now, you better start looking for the cows. Because when the rut gets close they will be looking for the cows, some will come back to where you found them in the summer, but sometimes they come back towards the end of the season. Seen it happen many times. Like everyone will tell you, there are elk throughout the unit. Spend the summer driving roads, learning how to get around. Good unit for lots of action.

    Poor man's Alaska fishing trip?

    Dusty’s right, Waters Edge Lodge is the place to be! It’s addictive. If you know how to operate a boat and enjoy fishing on your own terms self guided is the way to go. Going next week for my 8 th trip, we’ve got the new stabicraft this year and really looking forward to it. Here’s a couple of pictures from last year when we took our 11 year old grandson,Zach.

    Tonto National Forest Stage III in effect. (Closed)

    Interesting, I take the closure as no anything within the forest boundaries, except driving to and from open area ie: the lakes. Includes no walking, hiking, wandering around. That’s just my take.

    Looking for recommendations for a Pellet Smoker

    I’ve had the Green Mountain grill for a couple of years. I think you get more bang for the buck. Control everything from my phone. Smoked rib roast, ribs, pork butts, turkey , ham, fish. Not much I haven’t done. Set up profiles on your phone and let it go. I’d buy it again.

    BUSH FIRE!!!!

    It was reported it started at Bush Highway and 87 at 2:00 pm Saturday. At where it is now, how far in miles has it travelled? Last I heard it was 4 miles from Tonto basin, that was noon today.

    Pop-Up Campers, good or bad idea?

    I liked the pop up trailer till I bought a boat, then went to a pop up camper. Then you can tow a boat or quad trailer. Till you build a cabin, then you hunt around the cabin. Problem solved😀

    5bs Turkey Frustrations

    I had a couple of juniors up there last weekend. Looked at the areas between Starlight pines and Jacks canyon one afternoon, never saw a track. Surprised me, but that’s turkey hunting for you, I’ve seen turkeys in a few areas over the years in 5bs but nothing with any regularity. Good luck!

    Youth Turkey?

    Having fun! One of the grandsons rolled one at 30 yds, just hit the feathers, nothing in neck or head. Rolled then jumped up and flew across the canyon. That was on the second day, today the same grandson had three gobblers appear at 25 yds and didn’t take the shot, I was 4 yds from him and kept saying “shoot” but lots of things going on in his mind: 1- they were gobbling but when they came out of the canyon they weren’t strutting so didn’t know if they were Toms 2-thought the beard was on the chin and didn’t see one till they got close enough to see there chest 3- thought they were probably too far. He says he won’t be able to sleep tonight 😂

    Is Stoneman lake rd open?

    Looks like 5b is opening today. FROM THE FOREST SERVICE TODAY Hello all, thanks to the weather and to our staff, we are going to open some of our roads. Starting tomorrow, we will unlock gates on the north and west side of Hwy. 87. This will open our roads along the Lake Mary corridor, and Hwy. 260 corridor, between Hwy 87 and Camp Verde, plus north and west of Hwy. 87. The roads are still too muddy and wet south of Hwy. 87, and especially along the 300 Rim Road. We will keep checking on those to see when we can possibly open them. Until then, the roads opening tomorrow will be posted on our Forest Service website. A news release will come on Monday. Thank you, and stay safe everyone!!

    Junior turkey tags/where to buy?

    Walmart this morning was no problem getting the tags, I’ve heard they were going to stop selling non essential items. Not sure if that’s true but didn’t want to take a chance.

    Junior turkey tags/where to buy?

    Getting time to pick up a couple of OTC jr.turkey tags, my question is where should I go to buy them. Waiting in line at Sportsman doesn’t sound like a good idea, Maybe Walmart? Any dealers out there that don’t have huge lines just to get in the stores? I messaged G&F to see if they could be bought on line and haven’t heard back, I’m sure the answer would be no. But seems like a good way to get them.
