    Wolves by Payson AZ

    I was out scouting west of Payson and thought I had seen a deer move in the trees about 150 yards in a little bowl below me. Then when out came 2 young wolves. They were running back and forth working their way towards me. About half way towards me they disappeared which kind of concerned me. Never saw them again. Has anyone else seen them this close to Payson? From what I have heard about them, this is bad for us. Eric

    Game Camera Batteries

    Hi Everyone, Game cameras are growing faster then ever for scouting. But Its a bummer when you go out there and your camera batteries are dead. So here is a little game camera battery info for you to chew on. Alkaline batteries are the least expensive but they discharge even when the camera is in sleep mode. The discharge rate normally depends upon how cold or hot it is out side. They also do not have the power to throw the flash or infrared as far as the manufacturer says. In Az where my camera has recorded over 120 degrees, they are no good. Lithium batteries are great, they do not discharge and last well. But are more expensive. Rechargeable Ni-MH batteries are the best. They do not discharge and good ones will last most of us a life time. They do not hold a memory, no need to discharge and can be charged anytime. Good ones can recharge up to 1000 times. Again, that is more than my in life time. But don't be fooled by any rechargeable batteries, look at the mAh (milliampere-hour) . In a nut shell mAh is basically how long the battery will last. Lets look at some differences of mAh and some costs. I tried to average, I know you can find them cheaper but this is what I have found on an average. C-cell Regular alkaline battery 1500mAh to 3000mAh $1.00 to $3.50 each Std Rechargeable batteries 2800mAh $4.00 High Grade Rechargeable 5000mAh $5.00 As you can see there is a big difference between the alkaline and good rechargeable batteries. Again, the other big difference is the power in a rechargeable battery compared to an alkaline is it can throw your infrared or flash further. Get two sets of rechargeable batteries, that way every time you go to your game camera you can change out the old ones and put in the new. Tenergy Rechargeable batteries are the ones I use. Moultrie also makes a "Solar Power Panel" that hooks up to any camera that accepts a 12V barrel connector. I currently use these on some my Stealth cameras. You still need to have batteries in the camera. I currently have one running in the wilderness and it has been going for a year. I have checked this panel on Moultrie, stealth and Wildview cameras and it works. But be careful to make sure the polarity is correct for your camera before hooking it up. Good luck and hope this helps. Eric

    Congratulations John, Sweet Bull.
  19. Looking for one of the best and easiest elk call on the market? Click here for the Steve Chappell M4 Matriarch Cow Calf Call Signature Series Steve Chappell is part of Cabelas Pro-Staff. One of the best Elk guides in Arizona and also a renowned elk caller. Watch the video below, you will understand why this call is the call elk bulls love to hear! This elk game call produces all cow/calf mews and nasally sweet estrus sounds. Can produce and imitate the estrus scream. Part of the Steve Chappell elk Matriarch Signature Series. Also look at the others. The estrus scream is what brings in the big bulls. The cow elk is saying, “I am ready and here I am.” I’ve done a lot of elk hunting and never have I had a call that is so easy. I listen to Steve blow this call and then duplicate, it’s simple. I personally cannot use a mouth reed call and this is the closest thing to it. Steve has other calls that are awesome as well and recommended to have in the field. The Steve Chappell 140 Who’s YRR Daddy Cow Elk Call and the Steve Chappell F1 Trophy Wife Cow Calf Call Signature Series , our number one is the Matriarch. Watch Steve use the Matriarch call. He is teaching how to use it and a bull starts bugling behind him and starts to come in. Watch him on youtube and all the success he has had and you will see why this call is number one. If you can find one better, please let me know. At the time of this article we have this priced at $25.95 with free shipping. We specialize in Premium Hunting Gear and this item is our number one Elk Call, Premium Hunting Gear.
