    GoldenDoodle pups

    And poodles are smarter than labs / goldens. But the shedding thing, yeah, that’s a game changer. After being around a lab for a few hours my eyes are swollen and watering and my skin itches head to toe. So these critters are really attractive to me. Too bad I have a dog already, and he looks like he might live to be a hundred.

    I’m selfishly hoping it stays a little dry until after the buffalo hunt at the end of the month. Right now we are enjoying the better weather of the Northern Rockies.

    19B Deer tag

    I’d rather have 19B than 23 mule deer everyday. My biggest set of sheds came from near the yavapai ranch.
  4. My son shot his muley doe at 200 yds. I can’t remember what viler we used. I think it was something federal. It worked fine.

    Hit the lottery

    Yeah, that’s real unfortunate.

    Thanks Hector. He’s 11, this may ruin him, but it really couldn’t happen to a nicer kid. He is so excited to kill his first deer. Hopefully we can make it a good one.

    Well our family has made some good memories the past few years. In 2017 I took my first archery bull in 3C. Last year my son Hunter lived up to his name by taking his first antelope in unit 10. I drew a once in a lifetime Idaho Shiras moose permit that I put on a 40" bull. This year Hunter has his own OIL tag as we head up to the Kaibab for a cow bison hunt later this month. I am headed to MT for my first ever archery elk hunt in that state. And to top it off Hunter's little brother Nash will be hunting Mule Deer in 12AW during the late hunt. Yup, we are living in the good ole days . . .

    Sad news- Hoghunter

    Wonder if that kid is about to get a deer tag without a dad to take him.

    Anyone know the family washed away in Tonto Basin?

    So then should the adults who lead a family to Water Wheel for a swim be charged similarly (this was also in Gila County)? There are signs warning about flash floods: https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona/2017/07/16/payson-flash-flood-results-four-deaths/482805001/ How about the family who let another family stay in their cabin that didn't have a carbon monoxide detector? https://www.azfamily.com/news/family-of-found-dead-in-cabin-from-possible-carbon-monoxide/article_eba36f01-89ff-5723-9251-a3e44c1b744a.html To be clear here, I don't hold the county responsible for this and I doubt the family does either. But I do suspect the motives of the county in moving these charges forward. It was pretty dang clear that GCSO was enjoying their day in the sun while the search went on. It was also they held strong animosity for the family and volunteers who showed up to help they refused to even coordinate with the civilian effort which had far more man power and significant resources. And, ironically enough, it was the volunteers who found all 3 bodies. This whole thing stinks to high heaven.

    Sure. How about if every county in America just decides social distancing is great and they tell everyone they are only allowed to go to work and the grocery store for the rest of forever. That would be great protection, right? Wouldn’t that prevent a lot of traffic deaths? And reduce annual flu deaths? So let’s just post a sign that says if you leave your house you are endangering your family, and if you leave, if anything happens we will charge you with manslaughter.

    They post those stupid “barricades” every time there is water in that wash, knowing full dang well that people have to cross there. heck the barricade is nothing more than a portable sign they put on the road. The water was calf deep on Saturday but it was supposedly closed and all 60 homeowners who live over there were supposed to drive clear to the Young road and back to get in and out of their homes. Because of calf deep water. So pretending that they had all this warning and should have known better because of a dang sign is dumb. He should have known better cause he is a native Arizonan and has spent a lot of time in Tonto Basin. But Gila County pretending that they were protecting anybody with their fake barricades is ridiculous. To say you are going to put someone away for decades because of that is crap.

    I, along with about 20 other vehicles, drove around those barricades and made that crossing yesterday. Like it or not, that’s a way of life for people who live there. My 10 year old was with me. I dare the camera hungry jackasses at Gila County to come charge me. They won’t, because there is no media opportunity in it for them. I hope the Rawlings and Sherwoods sue the heck out of them.
