    Fire N.E. of Payson

    the rains help put the fire into smoldering mode. about 770 acres with 450 FF on scene. if its rains tonight lots of resources going to be released. i wouldnt worry too much about winds heading south. might be bad for the east and west heads but seems like the north head is biggest and a north wind would slow it down. just an outside observation though havent actually seen much of the fire but my dad lives up in east verde estates and as fast as that thing is moving i would think they would be on alert but again im not actually there.

    they set up a swimming pool looking deal then fill em from the water tenders, then fill up the bladders. also they are probably dipping from any private water source around. any questions call payson ranger district, they will help all they can.

    Are you kidding me?

    loose lips sink ships.... i was thnking the same thing when there were some threads on help for spots to hunt in certain units and then reading the what units i was pretty pissed too. i kept thinking in my head " man theres a personal message deal to use on here". some of you might not want to know what unit so you can strt scouting that unit but those of us that hunt the unit mention we get a little pissed cuz theres more people that read a topic than post a reply. thewhole thing about inviting a couple buddies to your hunting spot is the worse thing to unless you know for sure youre the only they ever talk to or hang out with. you invite 2 friends next thing you knw they invite 2 more friends so theres 6 moe poeple hunting in your spot then those other four invite even 1 friend a piece, i think you get what im saying. i pride myself in finding my own spots to hunt like most here on the site, i learned my lesson when iwas hunting a years ago and a guy came walking up on and after talkin to him found out he was turned on to the spot by a friend of one my coworkers i that didnt hunt and i thought it was ok to talk to him about where i like to go...big mistake....
