    AZGFD paying youtubers?

    AZGF's funding/promotion of AZ hunting on the WWW has exacerbated the elimination of OTC archery deer units and any leftover permits doled out after three annual draws all while filling coffers with NR money. Get over it. Hunt opportunity we had in the past was going away sooner rather than later by virtue of our exploding population coupled with the loss of hunting opportunity in other western states and elsewhere. IIRC, AZGF attempted to put archery deer to a draw in the early 2000's. Resistance was fierce at that time, the proposal was dropped. Don't have a crystal ball but expect OTC deer will be gone in 5 years. As stated by others, units that are still open for OTC deer will see a lot more pressure. The upside to this is NR's who have invested in hunting AZ and accumulated bonus points for other species will likely continue to do so keeping "outside" money flowing. However, NR's will be subject to the up to 10% rule and that will likely dampen their enthusiasm to continue pumping money into AZ.

    Kayaking on Fool Hollow Lake

    ^^^^ This. Spent Sunday morning dredging up a few bass. The lake is very low. Went to Scott Reservoir Monday morning and it appears the lake is being drained. Lake was easily 10' down from three weeks ago. IMO, a fish kill is just beginning to happen. Many trout swimming on the surface, osprey were having a field day with herons pulling up the rear. Anybody know more on what's going on @ Scott reservoir?

    Field & Stream Article on Arizona Trail cam ban

    What is disturbing is people supplying misinformation. Life long cattleman Bill Brake is an avid hunter in AZ and elsewhere. I know this to be true.

    Maricopa County Flood Control has a decent site & map for local rainfall, radar, etc. Tons of rain gauges across the valley. https://alert.fcd.maricopa.gov/alert/Google/v3/gmap.html

    Ticks on deer

    December in 44BS, had ticks everywhere, everybody in camp found ticks on their person. Saw many on the ground. Surprised me that many ticks could survive in the desert and the cool of December.

    Social media is not for everyone. Acidic responses to posts/opinions are part of it.

    Arizona's Mnt Rushmore of Hunting

    Amanda Moor Without her site we'd likely have a Utah style "Sportsmen for Wildlife" organization whoring out a substantial number of AZ's best hunting permits. CWT.com has educated a great many outdoorsmen and women of all ages. Current events affecting AZ outdoors rarely escapes the vigilant members of this site. Backdoor deals usually get sniffed out and are brought to light right here on CWT. Good on you Amanda! Lamel Ellsworth, John Russo, Bob Hirsch, etc., too many to name!
