    Love snakes, but not these ones!!!!

    Probably average or below. At a little over 3ft., this snake was just starting to get on the 'big' side. Always glad to safely get them gone. I think someone in this thread said they saw 18 eggs or so in one. That is totally believable in a 5 or 6 ft snake.

    Shooter - Very cool post and pictures. You're more ballzy than me dissecting those eggs. We caught this female a week or so ago. She had nine eggs. Maybe less six inchers come September. Tyler1215 - crazy, but would probably work.

    Results up on AZGF Portal.

    I drew second choice - 1st rifle hunt in 33. The unit 10 tag was my first choice. The best of luck to all hunters. I hope everyone draws the coveted tag they're after. I also hope everyone has a safe, healthy hunt.

    Effects of the virus scare?

    Seeing empty bread racks at the grocery is one thing, seeing ammo shelves being cleared out at sportsmen's warehouse is a little scarier to me.

    I don't want your secret spot, just the coordinates to all of your hit-list buck elk.

    Coverage is definitely hit and miss. The Summerhaven coverage is better now than it ever has been. In all likelihood, I'd expect no coverage depending on where you are hunting. Unless you're really close to Tucson or Oracle Road.
  13. Just a heads up to be more diligent than I. My vehicle was broken into yesterday (Monday, January 20th) while parked on Catalina Hwy. I've now lost my first two trail cameras to thieves, just not in the traditional manner. Also gone: Surface Pro, backcountry tent, sleeping bag and a range bag full of the many hard to account for things we keep in range bags, & many other items. They even stole a gallon of water. Dont give people a reason to break in your car! Hunt hard, stay safe.

    Vehicle Break-In - Unit 33 on Catalina Hwy.

    So far the only positive id has been of the fanny-pack which remains in evidence through trial. Im not expecting anything significant to be returned. Just feels good knowing that there was some sort of...um - er... justice.

    Vehicle Break-In - Unit 33 on Catalina Hwy.

    *UPDATE* - ARREST MADE Sheriff detective called yesterday to let me know that an arrest was made regarding my case. With serial numbers on several electronic items that were stolen, the break actually came because of a fanny-pack. I don't own alot of high end gear, but I did have a nice "specialty" fanny-pack. Not Nike or Adidas but a quality piece of gear from reputable backcountry equipment company. Crackheads dont sport sh*t like that...busted! They said that he was a career burglar, and he's headed to prison not jail. I'll update again with any other details. -Patrick

    Vehicle Break-In - Unit 33 on Catalina Hwy.

    Trphyhntr, I would hope that it wasn't the same guy. That's a large area to cover. I haven't hunted that area since I was in high school. Was and probably still is a great area for quail. Thom, you forgot f'n Jersey. We've been getting unsavory transplants from these places for years. heck, Guiseppe Carlo Bonanno aka "Crazy" Joe retired here in the sixties. Suce a drastic change from that era, makes me think of the movie 'No Country for Old Men' CatfishKev, I remember watching this exact episode when it first aired. They cut a bone chilling scene where one of the detectives told the mother of the 16 year old suspect that she doesn't joke about homicide investigations. There are some other crazy ones from Tucson. -Not ready at this time to address pb & terriers...sounds like terrier-ism. Prdatr, of course we've seen it. That's one way to clean up the streets. I never saw the early Dirty Harry flicks except for renting them at Casa Video.

    Vehicle Break-In - Unit 33 on Catalina Hwy.

    Thanks to all for condolences and thoughts from everyone. Redman, I appreciate the input. Unfortunately, I would bet that this is Tucson, born & bred thuggery. There are bad elements everywhere. Prdatr, It doesn't surprise me that this would happen with some prevalence around the valley. When out in places like unit 9 or 10 I'm always shocked to see in tact stop signs and such. When you go to places on the outskirts of our big cities these sort of signs, really anything along some roads, are shot to heck - riddled with bullet holes.

    I'm glad I didn't see it happening, probably would have been a longer day following the 3xS plan. Why does vigilantism sound so appealing?

    Catfish, definitely no stickers here. I basically have the same sentiment. I've never felt the need to announce anything via sticker. Not on a vehicle at least. I never activated the find-me option. Didn't use it much, only really as a road trip computer. Muley33, it's too depressing. Quite frankly embarrassing. As usual when something like this happens, it's not the monetary value that stings. I've been checking craigslist and offer-up.

    Down East – What a great thread. I really enjoy the thoughtful info and direction that can come from this community. It really is impressive (that there's not even trolling about power lines). It’s not often that I feel that I have anything meaningful to contribute to these sorts of threads, but here goes. Here are a few facts and opinions. -Unit 33 is one of the best units in Arizona for coues deer. -Because you mentioned staying in the backcountry for multiple days I wanted to remind you that you will likely NOT encounter a water source for filtering drinking water. Sorry if this is obvious, but I only mention it because you're out of state. -Hunting in the Prison Camp area is great, but keep in mind that weekends vs weekdays are drastically different on the amount of non-hunter recreation going on anywhere off of Catalina Highway. -With late or later hunts, beware of road closures. Catalina Highway specifically will get shut down with snow or even heavy rains/monsoons. -Buy a lion tag -Come here to scout. If you archery hunt, then reconsider the August OTC season. Good luck with the draw & happy hunting! -Patrick U.T.A.H.camp - Unit Ten/Thirty-Three Arizona Hunt CAMP
