    Arizona’s Hunt 3096 Unit 3A

    I don't think there is a elk out there on public land anymore, due to the OTC hunts and landowners locking gates. Good luck scouting Your prime time to scout will be 2 weeks before the hunt.

    Toyota Dealer Recommendation

    Well the title of the post is Toyota Dealer Recommendation so yes most are answering the question. I haven't bought a new car or truck in the last 6 months so I don't know what is going on in the new car world. Last year you couldn't be too picky, very limited inventory and cars being sold very quickly, you either had a while to wait or you bought what came in. That being said I agree with eddie if multiple dealerships have the car you want then buy on price. I too have had good luck with Hatch Toyota up here in Show Low but it is a long ways up here Good luck.

    Levi is on the board!

    Congrats young man! Good shooting!

    Vortex Optics Truth

    Well I've owned only 1 vortex scope ever. It was $800+ quite a few years ago and I had it fail so I'll never own another one. I just thought it was funny that casey said almost the exact same thing back on page 1. I agree 100% with him though.

    HAHA deja vu from page one

    Just bought a Traeger and really?

    I did a prime rib this year but forgot to take a picture so I’ll add to this thread by posting one from a couple years ago with a giant Coues next to it. I love cooking on my Traeger, I'm sure there are others that are better or just as good but I've had pretty good luck with mine for almost 10 years now. I did have to replace an auger motor and a fan but that is about it.

    I love the simplicity of a pellet smoker/grill and what you get out of it. It takes significantly less time to clean and tend than my old wood/charcoal smokers. Much better taste than propane, but yes just like everything in life there is some maintenance. Couple of things I have learned over the years of pellet grills/smokers Keep them out of the weather as much as possible either with covers or on a porch etc.. Pellets will retain some moisture and if they start breaking down it really gums up the auger. I usually keep just enough pellets in the smoker so that if they get wet, either directly or through humidity in the air I don't waste a bunch of pellets. There is a sweet spot when you vacuum too much or not often enough If I'm doing long smokes (6+ hours) I'll clean them out every time. If I'm doing quick grill work, steaks, hamburgers, chicken etc... I clean them every 5 or 6 times I use it.

    Opportunity VS Trophy Hunts

    Thankfully I've had the opportunity to kill a decent bull on the late archery hunt, If I didn't have the chance to do other hunts throughout the year the late archery hunts can be fun. There are a few things I did not like about them. After shooting a few elk over the years I don't have a need to shoot a cow elk so my response will be for bull. 1. In most of the units it can be pretty cold. I killed a late archery bull at 0 degrees. Cold can be hard on archery equipment 2. They get into the thick stuff pretty early and can be very tough middle of the day hunting. 3. Expensive .. I always found myself sleeping in a hotel or something, I hate camping in - degrees, just not fun for me. 4. Even the worst bull hunts are getting harder and harder to draw, there isn't much opportunity (hunting every year) anymore. To me I would rather spend my time off doing archery deer, or predator hunting or ducks or going out of state that spend a bunch of cold nights chasing raghorns on the late archery hunts. That being said after I draw my next early tag I'm sure I'll be trying to hunt the late hunts just to hunt until I get too old to do so.
