  1. If things go as planned I’ll be hunting coues in December this year. Who has hunted this unit for coues and what can I expect? My expectations are to get a respectable first coues to hang in the wall and share the hunt with my Dad and boys.
  2. We won’t be able to make our reservation so I need to cancel. If you want to pick it up send me a message and I’ll cancel once you’re ready to reserve on Recreation.gov.

    Turkey Decoys

    Starting to plan for May hunt. What Turkey decoys do you use, if any? First timer here.

    RV storage

    I lost his number but if you are on Facebook look up Phil Chavez. He owns a landscape company and has a huge lot off of Queen Creek/Cooper. I was going to store mine there until I found a covered spot. I store mine at McQueen RV & Boat Storage. Call Ramiro and check if he has any spots opening up. 602) 751-9293
  5. Thanks for all the personal messages, advice, and words of encouragement. I’m still looking at options before I sell
  6. Considering selling my hunting rifle. I haven’t used it in over 5 years and if I do get out it’s with my bow. Likely going through a divorce and wife is already threatening to use the fact that I have firearms in the house against me when it comes to custody of our kids. When the dust settles I’ll likely pick up something in a different caliber. How much could I get for this combo? Savage Model 110 30-06 (good condition) Accutrigger Nikon Buckmaster II 4.5-14 BDC reticle with target turrets Caldwell medium bi-pod rubber rifle sling

    23 North Early Archery

    I’m no videographer but here is my 23N archery hunt. There are a ton of bulls in the unit. If you want a 375+ you’ll need some good scouting but it’s easily achievable. My only regret is shooting the first bull I had in range on day 2. Wish I would have hunted longer, but I was happy getting my bull DIY with my Dad by my side. Saw some monsters in there. I ran into A3 on day 2 of my pack out. Tried to wave them down to chat and give some help and they instead almost ran me off the road in their Ranger. I later found out 4 of their group of 5 hunters tagged out. The female who was in the Ranger with them did not.

    Note: in some places the Rez fence is little more than a single downed line of wire. The elk also seam to know exactly where it’s at too.

    Thoughts on Chandler road rage shooting

    Dude what’s your problem. My initial question on starting this thread was to hear discussion on the subject in which many members have stated very good points and given real world examples. I think we are all waiting for more information to come out and then opinions may change, who knows. It sucks someone died and there is now another story adding to liberals (real liberals) agenda to infringe on our 2a freedom. I don’t have an answer and was just throwing an idea out there which was shut down respectively. None of your comments have constructively added to this thread. FYI both my wife and I are active hunters and own several rifles, shotguns and as of now 2 handguns. Far from liberals but open enough to hear others point of view.

    Thoughts on Chandler road rage shooting

    Dude, my wife was stating her opinion on lowering the number of firearms and individuals with access to them after seeing a guy carrying out in public. I tried to educate her that the guy carrying was likely not one of the bad guys you read about. Next thing we know we both see a guy DIE. As a married man you stop the discussion. My guess is you’re not married. There is a time when you just let the wife’s opinion stand. On your other question, if you don’t think racism exists in Arizona you’re blind. The guy was Mexican. Read the discussions on Facebook assuming the guy was here illegally and why he isn’t deported. There is a lot of hate out there. This group is not that way and why I enjoy being part of this community.

    Thoughts on Chandler road rage shooting

    I’m not arguing against you. The only thing I can think of is Education. Drill it into the firearm owners head that if you draw your weapon more times than not you’re going to be the bad guy. The guy was a minority, he already had one strike against him. Unlike Sky Islands example above, it doesn’t sound like the guy had a reason to fear for his life. We’ll find out more details soon. I’m not sure what would be better to support our 2a rights, him owning the gun legally or finding out it was stolen or something. On another note, I’m sure lawyers are lining up to defend this guy.

    Thoughts on Chandler road rage shooting

    The thought here is there are some individuals that can be very responsible gun owners(most) but still have the ability to loose their cool once and a while and flip out. During those limited times, having a firearm in your possession is not a good idea because all your common sense goes out the door. I appreciate your opinion.
  14. This incident hits close to home since it was like a block from my house and my wife and I were discussing our opinions on open/concealed carry earlier in the day. First off I’m very sorry someone lost their life. As we drove by right after it happened I saw him on the floor with shirt off getting CPR by first responders. A scene hard to forget. I’m 100% for our freedom to carry a firearm. I would rather a CCW permit be required simply for the training you get laying out the implications you face if you utilize your firearm. For those that did not hear the details, white guy and Hispanic guy are driving up Gilbert and get in a road rage altercation. Once the hit red light on Germann Hispanic guy is behind white guy at the light. White guy gets out of his vehicle. Approaches Hispanic guy and yells out “do you want a piece of me”. Hispanic guy then fires off a few rounds hitting white guy and the car of a nearby family narrowly missing their kids. Guy doing the shooting was booked and is charged with murder. Guy who got out of his vehicle and approached the other vehicle was unarmed. Because two hot headed fools were acting like idiots now one of them is dead and the life of the other is also ruined. My wife making a case for limiting firearms won on this day. Idiots
