    2021 Texas Whitetail

    Captivating writing up and better ending. Thanks for sharing. Beautiful antler color and love how those beams curl back in. Headed to So TX mid-Dec and would be tickled pink to duplicate your success.

    Unit 10 early archery *story added*

    Awesome story! Glad passing on day 1 paid off big!

    Heffelfinger on instagram

    I've never met Jim in person but have had some conversations with him. He's smart, impressive as a biologist and I think he's a real asset and lonely bright spot within the AZGFD. That said, his instagram post is rather ironic. I believe without question social media (*cough* YouTube) is the primary catalyst for the increased demand in hunts, not just in AZ but the west in its entirety. We are not the only state losing opportunity, just look at how fast CO is lopping off their OTC elk hunts. It's unfortunate. But Jim making himself widely available on podcasts or to Randy Newberg/Gritty/whoever during their AZ YouTube hunts certainly isn't helping curb the demand. Personally, I wouldn't post a complaint about loss of opportunity if I was a contributor to such.

    Boarder Unit Quality

    I've been down on the border a few times the last 6 months. Usually I get down and back without seeing an illegal; now every trip I see at least one group being wrangled up. I don't really know what effect it's having on the deer and I won't truly get a sense until January's archery season. My hunch is not much though.

    Setting a great example for the kids....what dirtbags.
  6. Thanks for resurrecting. That was blast to read. Best thread I've seen in a long *ss time.

    Elk Arrows. KE/Momentum

    I tend to agree with this. With fixed blade broadheads I have a hard time getting the consistency I do from mechanicals at say 50+ yards. I've landed the last few years on a 420 grain, 4mm arrow, rage broadhead with about ~16% FOC and haven't NOT gotten a passthrough, including elk.

    3 prong or spear fishing

    Crazy timing. I literally just ordered a speargun, wetsuit, mask, snorkel, fins, etc. I'm headed to Hawaii mid-September for 7 weeks hoping to thoroughly dip my toes into the sport and will probably book a lesson or two to shorten the learning curve. I'm moving your direction (Vegas) in Nov/Dec so if you ever want a partner to go explore some waters let me know.

    Non Covid bug going around

    I came down with RSV that lasted well over a week but I guess that was nearly 2 months ago already.

    Anyone have a Raptor?

    Could be worth checking out the new F-150 Tremor. Some crossovers with the Raptor plus the 3.5L Ecoboost

    My Best Trail Camera Spot

    Thanks for sharing. Love video mode on trail cams and wish I did more of it. I just don't check them often enough to keep cards from filling up.

    Field & Stream Article on Arizona Trail cam ban

    Great article. Nice to see a write-up that shines light on this ban for what is vs what the commission wants you to believe or what you see/hear from people uninformed on the situation. Was clearly from the start a personal agenda of Kurt and Todd's and the stunts pulled to make it happen are frankly laughable. I was curious what the final tally was regarding the last public comment period. Surprised to see it was 1,019 opposed to a mere 71 in support!
