    Found a Couple of Deadheads

    I know this doesnt apply to this situation but I had a question. I found a dead bull the other day out hiking and know it needs to be reported so I called game and fish to report it. They said if it died naturally that I could keep it but if they determine it was an arrow or a bullet, they keep it. Unfortunately they found an arrow and said they would keep the head. What do they do with it is my question? It was clearly old, no meat, and all the way to the bones on the skull.

    OTC hunts for 2023

    If we just stopped advertising the "immense hunting opportunities" in Arizona on Youtube and everywhere else this would never have happened 😠

    Draw Results

    No tags for me again, but two youth cow tags in 23 should be a lot of fun.

    To Soon?

    I agree. You have to be a youtuber or a nonresident to get drawn nowadays. Heck, I have four bonus points for TURKEY. I think I'll apply for one of them trophy kaibab turkeys 😁
  6. I agree. Fact is public land is just that. Its lazy to sit on somebody else's work but by no means illegal. First come is how it works no matter what. If somebody is there first you leave and go to plan B.

    2 cows opening day!!

    I love that you hiked, showing them how to hunt the right way. To many people out there driving around in quads and utv's saying they're hunting. Well dona.

    Youth 23 hunters

    Good luck. Both my kids had that elk tag last year. I'll never forget them both tagging their first elk. Enjoy every minute of it.

    2021 Rut Activity

    Man, we were in 1 this weekend and they were going crazy. I called in a 6x6 while in camp with a cup of coffee in my hand and frying bacon in the other and the wind was at my back. If you can't tag out on that hunt I don't know if you ever will πŸ˜„

    2021 Fall Draw?

    I have a question. The last eight or so years I have been applying for the rifle mule deer hunt in 27 in December. Well, that hunt is no longer available so here's my question. I have 11 bonus points for deer but want to use them on a pretty good hunt. What are your recommendations?

    I don't think this has anything to do with other people's opinions. This may sound very silly but as our society advances and technology advances we absolutely are gaining an upper hand on these animals. If we want fair chase then the animals we are hunting should be able to advance in technology and put out cameras to spy on us as well right? Yep, sounds silly. As far as I know you can still use cameras up to a certain time to see the animals in your area and enjoy that, just not during season. If we keep advancing and technology helps us take more and more animals you'll see more and more seasons taken away like we're seeing right now to keep populations at a decent level.

    Go find a water hole during hunting season that doesn't have a camera and report back to me, good luck. Just my opinion but to me fair chase is fair chase. Get out and scout with the two eyes God gave you and enjoy every minute of it, don't let a machine do it for you.

    I'm all for a ban. Fair chase is fair chase. Having 20 cameras to do your work for you just doesn't seem right, gotta hunt hard and earn it, but that's just my opinion.
