    Javelina help!!

    So my 11 year old son drew his first hunting tag ever. It is a javelina tag in 17b,19a/b, and 20a. Initially I wasn’t able to get the time off. He was crushed however I am now able to get the time off for the first 3 days of season. Thinking I wasn’t able to go I haven’t done any planning. We live on California and we will have the 2 days prior to scout. Any advice that would help shorten the learning curve and increase our odds for success would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advance Russ
  3. So my 10 and 14 year old son drew this tag this year. They are so excited. This will be the 10 year olds first big game trip. We’d love any advice you have. We are not going to be able to scout as we have a wrestling tournament in Vegas prior and we live in California.

    Great javelina hunt in Unit 18B in 2018!

    Cant wait to take my kids hunting

    They did not. However my son drew a late season muzzleloader elk tag in New Mexico. I plan to apply for preference tags for deer this year. Maybe javelina
  6. Good news!! My son who’s 14 drew an elk tag in New Mexico in unit 51. The bad news is I’ve never been there and it’s far enough I can’t make a scouting trip. If anyone has input as to where to start it would be greatly appreciated. Trying so hard to ge this kid his first elk!!

    Thanks for the input
  8. Yes Hey just throwing it out there. I would like to buy my first longe range hunting scope. I will be placing on top of either a hells canyon speed in 300 win mag or a savage high country in 300 win mag. I’d like to shoot out to 1000 yards. The goal is to have an elk rifle that can hunt just about everything else I am looking at three different brands of scopes which I have the opportunity to buy at a significant discount so I’d like to choose between US Optics, Voretex, Burris, or Riton scopes. Was thinking of some in the 5-25 magnification range. I can not afford their top of the line stuff but a retail price of 1200$. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Can’t wait to take my kids hunting

    My 10 year is good to about 150-200 yards and my 14 is good out to 400. We will spend the summer extending that distance. My goal is to fill our bellies with the lifetime memories we create

    What unit would that be in? Are the youth deer hunts anterless?
  11. Hi my name is Russ. I am a father of three desperate to pass the tradition of hunting on to my children. The good news is my boys want to go so bad they are earning their own money to buy their tags if they are drawn. I currently live in California where there is very little opportunity for youth to hunt. I have decided to apply to Arizona this year. Would anyone

Would anyone be willing to steer me in the right direction as far as a unit and if we are lucky enough to be drawn pointing me in the right direction? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
