    AZ Meteorite

    Thanks Edge, I did the scratch test and it leaves a colored mark when scratched on the dark part but not really when scratched on the inner silver part that is exposed from sanding.

    AZ Meteorite

    I'm a little late on seeing this thread but I saw a flash of light out my back patio doors about 5:30 am on Feb 25th. Only lasted about half a second but it lit up my whole back yard. I went out to see if a helicopter was flying over but nothing in the air . Found out it was on the news and showed up on doorbell cameras in the valley. (I live in Chandler). Has anybody heard if there was a debris field? I found this in my back yard the other day. It was in my rock area by my garden beds and I have never noticed it before despite spending a great deal of time around the garden. It is pretty heavy for its size (approx. 1 1/2"long and 3/4 " wide. It weighs 2 oz. I thought it was lead when I picked it up. I took some sand paper to the side to see what would happen and it is silver or nickel in color. It is very magnetic. I soaked it in white vinegar to see if it was rust coated but it didn't do anything. Could be a broken tooth from trenching tool covered in something beside rust? (I say this because of the shape, it looks kinda man made with flat sides) What , besides rust, would collect to a piece of metal and be fused on? I'd like to think it's a Meteorite? I could be all wet on this but I have to find out what it is. Anyone know someone who is local that could look at it and tell if it is a meteorite?

    Mexico 2020

    Wow, awesome bucks!! Congrats. And that food pic made my mouth water.
  11. Can someone explain how G&F operate the left over tag drawing process? Do they open all the envelopes and deposit your check and toss the app in a bin and draw one app at a time until they fill them? Do they just drop all envelopes in a bin until the 23 and open them until all are filled? What happens if your app arrives prior to the 23, do they not accept it and toss it in the garbage? Any solid info would be appreciated.

    How does G&F handle the left-over tag draw?

    Thanks Eddie. I just got off the phone with G&F. They say you have to try and time the delivery of the mail to the phoenix office listed so it arrives Monday morning the 23rd from wherever you mail it from. If it shows up before Monday morning it gets rejected for the draw. If it gets there Tuesday, it's too late. Hope I'm one of the lucky ones to time it right.

    Your First Big Game Rifle?

    My first rifle was a Ruger 30-06 my dad got me for my birthday when I was about 20. Used it for everything until I won a Winchester model 70 in 270 with the Boss System (muzzle break) and synthetic stock at an early AZ Mule Deer Association banquet in the balloon raffle. I put a Swarovski scope on it (I won that in the Optics Package raffle another year at a RMEF banquet) and had some trigger work done to it. I added the bi-pod to the front. Still use this gun and love it. I also still use the 30-06 for elk (if and when I ever get drawn!!!)

    He scored my first deer I ever shot back in 1985. I remember him as being a really nice guy that was hooked on Coues deer.
