    Bowtec users

    Can't speak to these models, but my wife decided that after 10 years with my old bow, she wanted to buy me a new one. I'm just shy of 6'4" and very much prefer longer axle to axle bows. I shot the longer offerings from all of the major companies and found the Bowtech BT-Mag to be my bow of choice. Second place, the Hoyt Helix Ultra, was what I was leaning towards going in. But after shooting side by side, it really wasn't even that close. Great service once again by Junior down at Timber Mesa.

  3. I have one just like this, minus the wheels. Great case! I can put 10+ rods in mine and primarily use it to store them safely so my kids don't beak my good rods. Also works great for traveling in the back of my truck so other gear doesn't crush, break them.

    Crispi boot recommendations

    I went with the Guide Non-Insulated. Best boot I have ever used to date. Ross has about as good of a selection as I have found locally.

    Kuiu Katana vs First Lite Sawbuck Brush Pants

    Bringing this back up for any comments.
  6. I know the First Lite Sawbuck pants are just now coming out, but if anyone has a chance to compare them to Kuiu Katana pants first hand, please share your thoughts. I am less concerned about camo patterns and brand preferences than I am about their ability to hold up in our jagged, sharp, prickly southern Arizona terrain. It is my understanding that both were designed with out type or environment in mind. Both appear pretty versatile and light weight with the Sawbucks being a few ounces heavier (which I consider negligible in pants if the overall function is better). I have also heard the Kutana pants run small. Thanks

    Flying with Alaska airlines? Checked rifle costs?

    Not on Alaska Airlines, but flew to Kansas on Delta and home on Southwest this spring with a double rifle Pelican type case (Cabelas brand). It is well over the linear inch max, but neither airlines seemed to care or charged extra. I think weight is of bigger concern to them. They were sticklers on the 50 pound limit for our suitcase. We had to do some major repacking of our big suitcase (it had a whole frozen turkey in it) at baggage check-in because they wanted $75 for being 5 pounds over 50. https://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabela-s-Armor-Xtreme-Tactical-Rifle-Takedown-Shotgun-Case/1318396.uts

    LH Hoyt Ignite youth bow $300

    I think it being a lefty makes it a tougher sale. Good luck. I am sure someone will want it.

    Football Fundraiser - Phoenix Valley Discount Cards

    Thanks Chris. Anytime next week would be great.
  10. Hey CWT Community: My son is trying to raise his own money for his school football fees next year. It is close to $1000 this year! Man have fees gone up since I was in school. Anyhow, there are some pretty good deals on here. I know with my family's DQ addictions, we will get more than our money back at DQ alone. I will post pictures of the front and back of the coupons so you can get a feel for valid locations. Some are valley wide, and some are east valley. Past experience suggests that most locations (even ones not listed) will accept these. If you are interested, please let me know. We will try to find a way to come to or meet you if you are in the east valley. We could also mail them if you don't mind us folding or cutting the card down to envelope size. Payment could be face to face cash, check, or Venmo. $20 per card Thanks

    Glassing Seat/Pad from Phoenix Shooting Bags

    I received my glassing seat in the mail yesterday. Haven't had a chance to give it a fiend run through, but it looks very high quality and should work great! I love that it will clip to my pack! Thanks Anthony
  12. Great point! I almost stepped on a coiled rattler on my son's hunt in mid October as we here hiking back in the near dark.. Didn't see it in the grass and rocks until I was about to step on it. Just about had a heart attack as I jumped back. I hate those things.
  13. I also think that hunt success numbers put out by AZGFD are garbage. They not accurate due to voluntary reporting. Also, people use a lot of points to get December tags and often go home empty handed because they expected that hunt to be something it is not. They incorrectly assume that their late December Coues tags are "rut-hunt" tags, and likewise assume that they should expect to see multiple 100+ inch deer on those hunts. They are not rut hunts. At best they are pre-rut, and in a good year, you might see a little rut activity the last few days. The advantage is fewer tag numbers and a longer hunt period.

    Looking for Cell Phone tripod for picture taking

    I just attach this to my glassing tripod. I also have a bluetooth remote from Phoneskope that lets me take pictures without touching my phone. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072KNBV21/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.phoneskope.com/store/product/2/217/
