    Tonot NF travel BS

    This is old news. THIS Has Been in THE Works FOR Over 3 yrs. Sorry if they are closing your rds. This is a last draft for possible imput on a few rds. They are also opening some that have been closed and gated since the fire. I petitioned and presented my case on a rd closesure over 2 yrs ago. I m happy to say they closed it. It was a dead end wash trail that never should been open to any vechile as it has numerous dangerous washed out areas. If you can't walk a mile off the road. YOU Probably Shouldn't Be Hunting in there anyway.

    unless things changed firearms pressure will push the elk into res. area. A big edge is hunting restricted area. the herd can grow to 800 plus elk inside. from barricks, you hear bulls scream all night long well into the mornings. lots of elk use to filter off the lookout tower hill into the edges of that big open meadow of the gun range while they were building it! fences always torn down on that corner - lol bottom line your crazy if you have the clearance and don't hunt the limited restricted area !!!

    sitting a tank blind tillcheck the fence line crossings- that will help a lot- I quit trying for the depot as my whole draw would be limited to lesst than 10 tags. a lot depends on the base commander!! he's the law - period ! there are a lot more and better roads than when I hunted it yrs. ago. tanks are always the best places for action. I wonder if any of my blinds still around lol' great tags to have - good luck get a good map to show updated roads as it helps when you are trying to get out after sitting a blind at a tank till after dark -- the shortest route may not be the best. the guards may help with knowing which restricted fence lines crossings are more active. ! good luck - as for a diy hunter staying in the barracks for 15 a night was AAWESOME

    Rrrrrattle Rattle

    I've been hunting in AZ most my life--- never really thought twice about rattlers. Friends wear chaps religiously !! I've never been stuck at by a rattler , other than when I was trying to catch it! Now that gets your blood pumping. going after a rattle with a cresol branch!! if you leave them alone , they usually wont be aggressive. I put on my first chaps this spring as the grasses , desert floral was crazily thick and tall . I didn't encounter a snake , probably my las t time with gators too! the fact that I probably wont hear it gives me a little thought but hey my problem- Nobody I knows has ever been bitten --- lots of people with a lifetime of hunting. I think one time chaps prevented a strike. yes , if you see what damage any venom causes- it's not a joke to protect yourself! watch out for young rattlers- small especially babys- they cant control their venom older snakes have a kill strike where they intend yo kill , eat something - it shows the jaws working deep into the prey. warning strikes aren't as dangerous- lethal usually. wear leggings if you like -just be safe out there either way!

    A little help needed

    Several in around coolidge. Call and tell them situation It's off season so they may make arrangements. Worth a try. Pinal co. Rv restrictions are outdated and suck. Can't park and have someone live in even if you own property. Not even charge the batteries by the current codes.

    Major winter storm to hit high country

    Took a trip out to bartlette. Palo Verdes with snapped off tops everywhere. Looked like someone stomped on them. Weight of wet snow too much for them. Thousands of limbs broken or laying on ground -' just crazy.
