    Late season rifle bull in 4A for me and my 20 year old son. His third elk hunt, our first together.
  2. Major sports leagues are becoming more active in politics. The latest is the NBA is participating and promoting a series of anti-gun ads on Christmas Day. The NBA and Everytown USA are running at least 4 anti-gun ads in the middle of the Christmas Day NBA games. I've already sent a message to the NBA and the Phoenix Suns I will no longer support either the Suns or the NBA. Here are the links to contact the NBA and the Phoenix Suns. Let them know you will no longer support them as they want to remove our Second Amendment rights: http://contact.nba.com/contact-nba http://www.nba.com/suns/contact/contact_us.html We've seen recent protest movements of a hundred bring down a university president, imagine what can we achieve if we unite and protest the NBA's jump into politics by supporting the anti-gun agenda.

    January Archery Tips????

    I did some archery hunting 30 years ago and am getting back in to it this January with an OTC deer tag. I have the area located. It is in the junipers on the far north side of the Mogollon rim. Visibility is severely limited. I know where they water. Do I hunt the water hole in January or should I go looking for them? My plan is to be out there 5 to 7 days and I will be setting up a trail cam or two prior to the hunt. After reading through many of the mule deer posts on the forum, I've decided I will get Jim Heffelfinger's book Deer of the Southwest. Looks like it is a good source of info. And I will be contacting the wildlife manager for that unit. Are there any other resources I can look into for more info? Any recommendations from personal experience?

    Any credit card hits?

    Javelina tags for me, my son and my dad. No turkey tags. May consider any left over gobbler tags.

    Opening Day Muzzleloader Buck

    Brian, I never got within a 1/2 mile of this buck. He was always on the wrong side of the fence and up across the valley. I sat up on a vantage point along the fence line and watched him through my scope for hours at a time. I vividly remember the heart symbol formed by the outward lean of his horns and the inward curvature at the top. A true thing of beauty! Mike

    Opening Day Muzzleloader Buck

    Congrats Brian. Gotta love the AZ for goats. Even a unit like this has a few hidden bruisers. I saw this buck two years ago, but he never hopped the fence to public property during my hunt, He will make a nice addition to your wall mounts. Great job on your hunt. Mike

    Snow Update for 4A Rim Road

    I am on my way now. My dad left earlier. He called while still on paved portion of rim road. He said the road was clear and didntdidn't expect any issues on the dirt portion, except some mud. He never called back so he did not have to turn around. Good news to begin the hunt.

    Snow Update for 4A Rim Road

    Anyone been up on the rim road in 4A since the snow? Is it open or closed? Contacting Forest Service later, but eyes on the ground are much better at providing details than a government beaucrat in an office. Leaving tomorrow. 'bout dang time!

    Wyoming 2013

    Put in for Wyoming antelope with my son. Did not get drawn. I am interested to see how this year's WY hunts go. I will apply for WY next year as my son will be a senior in high school and the last chance to take him out of state until he completes college.

    What do you consider a big bull

    Great topic! Last year, my 16 year old son shot is first bull (second elk...cow elk on junior hunt when he was 10). 60 minutes til dark on the last day of the hunt and the bull only had 1 antler. It had 6 tines on it and he had not hesitation in shooting. To him, it was the bull of a lifetime. No idea what a 1-antlered bull would score. On my hunt later in the year, I missed a nice 6x6. I have no idea what he would have scored, but he was symmetrical and looked nice from the front. I then passed on two spikes that were within 200 yards, broadside, and moving very slow. Before the hunt I had decided I would not shoot at anything less than a 6x6 even if it meant going home with my tag in my pocket. Score is not relevant to me so I am not hunting solely for points, but no ragtops either. I enjoy the meat and the mount on the wall. One day I will have a decent bull on my wall.
  15. I've wondered about the Sossaman and Warner location. Never been there myself during season. Agree. Fewer birds this year, still got my limit. My son got 8. Going back out tomorrow morning.
