    Covid 19 SUCKS.

    Oh my, Lisa! Very glad to hear the current news on COVID and stoke impact(s). Regarding the jaw and other possible issues resulting from the accident, as mentioned by some above, I really really hope that Bill has solid legal representation! Like some have mentioned, I also am not a huge fan of the lawsuit crazy world we live in. That being said, it appears that Bill has suffered greatly from the accident (negligence) at Home Depot. It is very very important that he is compensated for medical bills and pain/suffereing (and possibly punitive, depending on the specifics of the actual event). If ever there was a time for a strong personal injury attorney, it is with this case, IMO. Try to keep him focused on his recovery and well-being, but also continue to keep the legal steps in mind. Best of luck to you and your family as he recovers! S.

    +1 on yotebuster's comments. I started using OnX a few years ago when my sons and I started hunting pronghorn in NM. Hugely valuable there!!! (Lance, I recognize that spot! πŸ˜‰ ) For AZ, definitely don't need or use it as much, but I was fortunate to draw a bison tag this year and it has been a little helpful with National Park vs. Kiabab forest boundary identification while scouting. Yes, there is supposed to be a fence and markers, but along a fairly significant portion of the border it is not 100% clear. Anyway, BIG thumbs-up for OnX from me! S.

    Hey PRDATR, was an accident at Home Depot. Explained earlier in this thread. Rough rough road for Bill. Accident, COVID, now this stroke. Crap!! ☹️

    Lee's Ferry Walk In Question

    Big +1 on Terry & Wendy! A chat with them regarding flies/technique will yield great info! hired Terry as a guide years ago and learned a TON from him in that one day of fishing. Also, a big big +1 on possible coordination with MULEPACKER!! Keep doing a little homework and network with the folks mentioned (and generous folks like MULEPACKER) and you'll have a great time!! S.

    Lee's Ferry Walk In Question

    My take would be to bring someone along who has experience at Lee’s Ferry to show you the nuances of fishing there. I haven’t been in several years, but the name of the game used to be DEAD DRIFT (strong mending skills...). πŸ˜‰ As said above, rent a boat. One with a guide!!! πŸ˜‚ Seriously though, you will learn a ton for future reference. Good luck!!!!!

    Dating a snowflake?

    Oh boy.... Was in Utah hiking/fishing for 10 days in early June and totally missed this one. Snowflake, Susan, Sandy-whatever, bla, bla, bla... All is good. 🀣 Edge, I would for sure buy you a beer! Hope to get a chance to someday. (Though would have to be an Arnold Palmer for me. Recently picked-up my 6 year chip. ) S.

    Only 1 hour until cards start getting hit

    Yuck. Hopefully next year. Good point (no pun) regarding no guarantees. For sure the odds increase with more points, but at the end of the day it is a lottery and virtually anyone can get drawn. The whole "max points" thing of course eventually comes into play, but for the vast majority it's simply the luck of the draw. I'm generally a glass-half-full guy, but the point of view I have on the bonus points tends to be pessimistic. Seems that the pool gets SO diluted with unsuccessful hunters over time that it likely diminishes the value of any single person having a few points. GOOD LUCK NEXT YEAR!!!! πŸ™

    Bull Elk Tag Transfer

    This. Regulations are clear, and don't mention sibling transfers. Two great tags!!! I hope it works out so you can make the most of it!!! S.

    Toyota 4x4

    Dang! Wish I needed another pickup! I had a 1984 'base' model 4X4 (Zero extras. No A/C, no radio! LOL). I believe that was next to last year they made them with strait axle. I put 250K+ miles on it, and it NEVER let me down once! Just a great pickup! S.

    Good luck on your preference! Seeing your choices sparked my interest, as I grew up in Kearny. Spent many years hopping between 37B & 24A while growing-up! Seems like 37B is one of the few units with both coues and muleys that still has the "any antlered deer" hunt. Fun to know you could go after either species with that tag.

    CC hits?

    Yes, I got a hit for $650. I put in for the first rifle cow hunt (9/25-10/7). S.

    Congrats on your son's youth tag!!! In my experience, you will likely have MUCH MORE fun watching him get his first elk or deer!! If you haven't hunted 36A much (or even if you have), be sure to check-out the youth camp that SCI & team host! They are outstanding with hospitality, food, fun, and also some hunting help! Enjoy! S.
