  1. My kaibab 15s lost the gas seal in one tube and the color was off. When I got them back they fixed that problem, completely cleaned them and replaced all the glass and a few other things.They also did all that on a time crunch and got them back to me before a hunt I had coming up. I am very impressed with vortex and will keep buying their products.

    Flagstaff Meat Processing

    Casey's and Bix both do a great job. I made the switch to Bix from Casey's a few years ago though after meeting Dan and his wife. Two of the nicest people you will ever meet. I always feel very appreciated when I go to Bix.

    Time to cross UPS off the list

    Get a label maker, print a label and drop off your package. Eliminates dealing with stupid people.

    anyone see this

    It's sad to say but this is an everyday occurrence. I have buddies in munds park fire and summit and atv/utv accidents are a huge part of their calls. I guess amputations with utvs are also extremely common.

    If you are hunting by walnut canyon you can camp down in 5bn off the winona exit off the 40. From there it's just 5 or 10 min back into 11m and you don't have to deal with the bums.

    Dear Arizona Game & Fish,

    I get it and when it's my turn up that will be a tough choice. I do wish the buffalo were managed to allow more than one per lifetime.

    Dear Arizona Game & Fish,

    I think a good analogy is picking up a hot girl's fat friend at a bar. Easier to get but a lot of regret afterwards. If you wanted the hot chick you should have held out.

    Dear Arizona Game & Fish,

    But that wouldn't put him in the max pool. The guy who sacrifices 15 antelope points 20 sheep points and 20 buffalo points might be max and all of a sudden you have 55 points along with his elk points out of the system.

    Dear Arizona Game & Fish,

    Care to expound a little. I believe this is the only solution possible to combat point creep

    Dear Arizona Game & Fish,

    How about combining species points and letting you use as many or as few per species as you want? If you wanted to hunt early rifle elk this year you could combine your elk points with your 15 goat points, 20 sheep points 9 deer points 5 javi points and 5 turkey points. It would generate more g and f revenue because people would buy points for every species and would also knock loose a bunch of points across all species.

    My Lion mount

    Nice! Brian Fisher is my wife's cousin and a great friend and hunting buddy. He is a top notch taxidermist and a great hunting guide. His passion is lions and if anyone is looking for a guided hunt, he is the man to talk to.

    Got a deer tag unit 7 any tips?

    Don't let the nay sayers get you down. 7, or I should say 7 east, because I have no experience in 7w, is a great unit for both deer and elk. 1000 tags, yes, but split between 2 huge units. A majority of hunters will hunt within less than a mile of a road and most of them will be in higher deer density areas. There are a lot of places you can go and probably see only 1 or 2 other hunter your whole hunt. 7e is a great glassing unit so use that to your benefit. Tons of knobs, hills and vantage points to get up on and cover a lot of ground. Whatever binos you have, put them on a tripod and spend a lot of time behind them. I find it funny how 7e gets such a bad wrap, even amongst the primo guides. It's not that big bulls and bucks arnt there, it's just a tougher unit to hunt. These sheds on a fake skull are from 2 years ago. This buck is still alive and should be an absolute giant this year. The trail cam pic is from Dec. So another buck walking around right now in 7.
