    .270 Win Copper Ammo

    Got your PM and replied. Prefer a trade but retail plus tax and a fair markup will work too. (For AZ CWT members).

    Kaibab Rifle Hunters

    Majority of Arizona hunters do it voluntarily. A higher percentage in AZ do because they are asked than hunters in CA do because they are told (it's required by law in CA). Less lead poisoning in condors as a result. That's something for Kaibab hunters to be proud of and several lessons on human nature.... We have used copper on several Kaibab deer hunts. A buck and a couple youth doe hunts. I have also used leftover copper ammo in .270 for cow elk. All performed very well. Pass through shots except the elk. I recovered that bullet just under the far hide. Expanded beautiful and dropped her practically I'm her tracks. Anyways, all I have found is copper ammo, didn't draw a tag for anything. Folks that drew may want to use non toxic in the condor zone if they can.
  3. The shortage of 12 gauge shells should help them out.... You are ok if you shoot 28 gauge or 16 gauge

    Field & Stream Article on Arizona Trail cam ban

    Report, report, report. And now instead of someone checking their camera while you are in your blind it will be AZGFD investigating reports of cameras.... Let the circus begin...

    .270 Win Copper Ammo

    Anyone hunting California or the Kaibab? Need/want copper? Looking to trade (prefer) or sell 130 grain copper .270 Win ammo for either 150 grain bonded .270 Win or 180 grain bonded 30-06 ammo. I have two boxes - new. This is all I have been able to find for 6 months. Not really what I want but someone will want it for the right hunt.

    New elk roast recipe

    Some one asked about the specific cut - the roast was just marked "round" by Casey's. I usually do my own processing but we were blessed with two tags and two mature cows this year. Two elk in two days was a bit too much to handle. I would guess top round. Very tender and great flavor.

    New elk roast recipe

    Fired up the smoker last week. I always try to fill it and use pellets efficiently. Brined and smoked some elk sausage at the same time as I smoked the elk roast recipe bigorange posted. It's a winner for sure....

    Lafayette, LA food

    Thanks. Plan was to fish from with a buddy's friend. Boat broke down 5 min out. We adjusted and fished from shore. Conditions weren't great. Windy, recent rain had water high and dirty, etc. Caught an undersized red, a small gar and a nice black drum. Not bad for a few hours wetting a line. Ate great at several local places. Oysters at Dukes were huge and awesome.

    First fawn

    I am curious and not picking fights or attacking anyone. Why aren't locals killing the coyotes? Aren't regulations relaxed and night hunting allowed? I am wondering why GF regulation and hunter participation hasn't solved the problem?

    Stuffed Summer Squash

    Stuffed some Zucchini with Dove Italian Sausage (see prior recipe posted link below) and Sweet Potato. I have made this stuffing yellow squash, patty pan squash, cabbage, bell peppers, etc. I have used butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes. Very adaptable recipe. I don't always measure so here is the rough idea. Preheat oven to 350 degrees 1lb Italian Sausage (medium spicy for me) I always use game sausage so add oil if needed. If you use pork, drain excess fat after cooking. 3 medium small Sweet Potatoes peeled and cut into 1/4 cubes (slightly smaller?) 1 medium onion cut into 1/4 cubes (slightly smaller?) 3 Tbs fresh basil chiffonade (minced or chopped small ok as well) 1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded low moisture mozzarella 1/4 cup shredded parmesan 3 cloves of garlic minced garlic salt to taste Brown Italian sausage place in a large mixing bowl Sauté sweet potatoes in neutral flavor oil (i use avocado but vegetable oil is ok) place in a large mixing bowl with sausage Sauté onions until almost translucent add garlic and sauté 1 minute or two place in a large mixing bowl with sausage and sweet potatoes Add basil and mozzarella and mix with sausage, sweet potatoes and onions Slice Zucchini in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds to create boats. Place on cookie sheets lined with foil. Salt lightly with garlic salt and stuff with sausage mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes (longer for bigger squash). Check squash for doneness, should be tender firm and not squishy. Top with Parmesan cheese and bake until melted. Great make ahead meals for busy nights or pack along to work for lunch. They microwave well and might be better that way!!!

    Thoughts on High fence hunts

    Not much different than raising game birds, putting them in a paint shaker and planting them in a field for guys to hunt. Hunting them is not the same as wild birds but its the only practical choice for many and many of us have done it and enjoy it. What about stocked trout? These animals are raised just so we can catch/shoot/consume them, Just saying, we have many examples of similar enough examples that many of us enjoy. Not going to look down at someone that does any hunt that is legal. IMO the antler hunts dredge up the same envy we see with auction tags, guided hunts, expensive reservation hunts, etc. To each his own - don't let the anti's divide us.
