    Unit 23 Late Hunt

    The low tag numbers is the best thing about the hunt. The hunters should be pretty spread out. This year I plan on spending a lot of time in the unit during the rut to see what there is going to be as far as the caliber of bulls. But knowing that they will not be in the same locations come the late hunt.

    Let's see ALL the cool stuff you've done with Javelina...

    So how do you guys get the lower jaw to stay open? Epoxy or superglue? I have one that I want to do that to but don't want to mess it up.

    Unit 23 Late Hunt

    It sounds like you have a pretty good handle on the unit if you are very familiar with it already. It is pretty much spending the time behind the glass looking over bulls until you find one you are happy with. Like most of the other units the quality isn't quite what it used to be but should be getting better with the number of tags. You will find bulls pretty much from the top of the unit all the way down close to the river including some real close to Young. I have shot two bulls out of 23 over the years and one was about 10 miles north of Young and the other the same south of Young. Plus I have helped on hunts that have shot them east and west of Young. So if you are going to be all over the place I would camp close to or stay in Young. What is your definition of a quality bull? I just happen to have the same tag so sorry for not being a bit general.

    Dad Passes

    Sorry to hear that Bob. My wife lost her dad a couple years ago and even though we knew it was coming it is still hard. It sure sucks getting old.

    Hunt Party Rules

    If 2 points threw him in the bonus pass for the cow hunt wouldn't he have no chance at the other hunts? I don't know the process completely but that is how I think I understand it. For your sake I hope I don't know what I am talking about.

    Ticks and javelina

    I was wondering the same thing. I have cleaned a couple where I had the dry heaves so bad I thought I was going to loose it because they smelled so bad.

    Wtb cabelas alaknak tent

    It seems to be completely random. I think I paid 700 for the tent and 2 cots. Each cot sells for 100. If your not in a hurry just keep checking the website.

    Wtb cabelas alaknak tent

    Keep an eye out for them to go on sale on their website. I have the 12X12 that I picked up last year and got a great deal plus they threw in 2 of the big Cabella's cots for free. They seem to always have a few of their tents on sale. It's just of matter of when the one you want comes up. Good luck, I love mine.

    Cell phone car magnet mounts - any recommendations

    There was a commercial on the outdoor channel last night for one. I can't think of the name off the top of my head though. It has a magnetic ball that attaches to your dash and a small metal plate attaches to the back of your phone that allows it to pivot where ever you want it angle to.

    Senior trip to Mx

    Great buck. Congrats to you and your son. And I am glad the lion hit the dirt. I wasn't sure after watching the video.

    New Service Fee

    I just do mine online and print it. Easy as can be and no fees. Do the fees also apply to tags or just the licenses?

    Units 36a, b, c hunt #5097

    What unit have you been hunting? I have only hunted 36B and have seen them every time we go out glassing for deer. We pretty much stick to the southern portion of the unit.

    Hunting the gullies in the flats

    We have pretty much started hunting the flats in the unit I hunt down south. We see bucks every time we are out. We are rifle hunting so we can find spots to glass from a distance and take longer shots. We watched the biggest buck I have ever seen here in Arizona cruising through the flats with a couple smaller bucks. They were using the washes to travel and any time that they popped out onto the flats they would run to the next clump of trees or the wash again. Never seen anything like it. And unfortunately we did not see the buck again. We used to also see a lot of great mule deer bucks when we quail hunted. They bed down in the washes and are unseen until we would basically walk right up onto them.

    Cat or Coyote?

    Looks like a cat ear to me. And like someone else said it has a smooth coat.

    5 To 1 Odds.....Why Not?

    I think a good spotter with quality optics are going to be one of the most important parts of this.

    Calling in lions.

    We have called in one lion in all of our calling. It came in at almost the 30 minute mark. We were trying to call in a bear that we knew was in the area. My buddy shot it at about 7 yards and it scared the crap out of him. Showed up out of nowhere. We had an electronic call and if I remember correctly we had changed call sounds a couple times.

    First timer

    I hope that the guys in this thread that are asking the questions are not the ones going down to Mexico this January. I have gone down a few times and always have had everything in order long before the hunt. The one year we may have hit 15 checkpoints on the way back home between all the different agencies down there. The rifle permits are the one that makes me the most nervous. Everything needs to match exactly as it is on your rifle. I have seen some of the officers down there really eying some of the rifles as they are checking the numbers.
