    The NON-SOON this year is really going to spell bad news for mearns. It does look good for the desert birds.

    Unit 1 & 2 Bull Elk Deperdation Hunt

    Many of the areas have multiple houses within the 1/4 mile. I would want permission on that 26Bar ranch!

    Unit 1 & 2 Bull Elk Deperdation Hunt

    My son and I were watching the huge cow herd up in Eagar a couple weeks ago and another truck pulled up and asked us "do you have the other tags?" They explained that there were depredation hunts every week after June 1, 5 tags each week. I had noticed all the elk were getting more and more skittish with time and the depredations hunts explained that. All the elk had moved out of the bottom where the road crosses the Milligan Ditch over to the 26-Bar Ranch (Hopi/John Wayne Ranch) where there was obviously no hunting. Those elk really learned fast as to where to hang out. I suspect the success rate on these hunts is really low considering the spooky elk and the difficulty accommodating the 1/4 mile rule. This last weekend, the huge herd but was with the ~200+ cows and calves.

  13. There are still a few around my feeder but I think most have gone. The feeder would not last a few hours when they were here in force. I still had food left from yesterday this morning. They are pigs of the sky!

    Youth shotgun

    Long ago I got my young kids a super small 20 ga single shot Savage. It was just beyond legal length cut off barrel and with a short stock - perfect for handling by an 8 to 11 yr old. PROBLEM: with full power loads, it kicked like a mule. I got a 20 ga reloader and loaded up a box or two minimum loads and it worked really well for a training gun but the shots could only be 10-15 yards with no choke. Note this gun is only good for about 2 years. Those kids grow but more importantly, they want the 3 shots volley availability!. Awh those were the days.

    The desert sheep in Arizona are in Unit 28. No one knows the area better (both sides of the border) that the guides for Double H Outfitters and specifically Matt Holcomb. https://www.facebook.com/pg/Double-H-Outfitters-Arizona-262297363806994/about/
