    Draw Odds Question

    Could you explain this please? I can't find AZGFD's take on it. Thanks, RR. This is the only explanation that makes sense to me so far, but it still leaves me wondering how coincidental it is that the same issue occurred with the 20BP holders as well.

    The ever-enlightening Thom. Thank you so much for clearing up the question. I'm not sure where CWT would be without you.

    Draw Odds Question

    In a sense, duh (on me). And thanks for the reply. But, does that mean that the next 5 guys with 20 points did as well? There are that many people making the second choice accidental BP pass mistake? Also, what about the 2, 20 BP second highest holders, they both drew their first choice? Seems like a ton of random for the particular hunt.

    Draw Odds Question

    Can anyone help explain how a 1st choice applicant with the most bonus points for a particular hunt number doesn't draw said tag? I don't see how it is a NR cap when 1 (10% = 1.5) tag is available to non residents and my only other explanations still don't make sense when I look at the next highest point holders. Thanks

    December Coues Success

    Nice story, congrats on your fine buck and RIP to your Uncle Sam.
  6. Interesting, informative, to-the-point article. I always thought if your arrow passed through the animal, the blade was sharp enough to fulfill its purpose. I even thought a dull blade with today's speed bows would do more tearing along the way, increasing surface area for blood loss. I now understand the contrary. Thanks for sharing.

    Please define "desert units" in AZ

    If I get what you're asking and was to be a snobby native for a second, it depends on which species of deer you're after. Not a distinguishable subspecies, but I've always thought Arizona "Desert Mule Deer" deserve some type of designation after living where they do and as old as they can. I picture saguaro/ocotillos with creosote/mesquite/paloverde habitat, somewhere near a dry wash that sees water as often as I do a deer season. Coues are coues, and Flatlanders post summed up the units well.

    Central AZ archery rut hunt - advice needed

    This. Commuting is wasted time. Many people I know have killed a buck in or just outside of camp.
