    Got the call from game and fish

    I’ll be down there with my 14 y/o son. He has the any buck muzzy tag. We will be in a White F250 w Leer cap. Stop by if you see us glassing.
  2. I am looking for a good mechanic to service my 2013 Yamaha 150 four stroke outboard. I also believe my trim motor is going out. Please post any suggestions in the Phoenix metro area. Thanks in advance

    Any spring leftover tags?

    Drawing 2nd choice when there are leftover tags for 1st choice happens when you are drawn in the initial Max bonus point round for the 2nd choice. You did not have enough BPs to draw in the initial max pool for 1st choice but did for the 2nd choice. It happened to me with my son on a youth hunt. Some javelina units you can draw in max round with loyalty point and hunter ed point. AZGFD explained that I needed to put 1st choice unit in both 1st and 2nd slot cause these are only considered in max BP round.

    Youth bow question

    I will have a youth Diamond infinite edge LH bow available shortly. My son is upgrading at Xmas to a Mathew Vertix. The Diamond is highly adjustable as they grow. Plus strong enough to harvest an elk (Sept’18) I would be willing to let your son try LH bow to see if it works. I would suggest a lesson w an archery instructor so they can help evaluate.

    electric winch drag weight vs rating.

    It is cheaper and safer to use snatch block pulley to increase leverage.

    NM Unit 17 Youth ML

    Aziator; My son had this hunt last year. DM me and I will give you details on what we saw. Yes, there are elk all over the unit but activity during that time was concentrated due to drought last year and likely the same this year. We had a great time with screaming bulls and passing on raghorns. We only had three days to hunt due to school schedules. My son took at cow at 10 yards cause she was going to bust the herd on last morning walking right to us. (Youth are Any Sex Tags). He already had an archery 6x6 and a muzzy 6x6 from AZ so we were looking for the big herd bull. He was just out of range behind trees that last morning. My son had not taken a cow elk so knowing we had to leave by noon he took the cow when the bull moved further away in the PJs. A lot of great memories. Not everyone had the same experience. We worked hard to be on the herd and had to change locations when the first area went silent. 2020 was tough rut year.

    How far would you pack out an elk

    https://www.packwheel.com/ Considering a Pack Wheel this year after hauling a cow elk out three miles last year in WY. But it was a special trophy cow elk, so it was all worth it. Joking aside I would do it again. Nothing like passing out at camp ~3:AM after the hike out.

    2018 Gould's and 2019 Merriam's full mounts

    Very nice. Thanks for sharing. I have a Merriam's and Rio mount. Can't wait for a Gould's tag to do something unique like the flight bird.
