  2. I plan on being in the Reavis/Apache Lake area of the superstition wilderness. How likely am I to find cell service at the tops of most of the ridges and mountains? I’ve heard from some that only a very few of the very tallest points will have any signal. I’ve heard from others that many of the peaks and high points will have some signal. Anyone have ave experience with this they can share? I use Verizon if that makes any difference.

    Barrel twist question

    I have only shot one Coyote with a 69 smk, it was at a much lower velocity than 22-250. (fired out of a 16" 223). Hit the yote broadside at 250 yards, classic behind shoulder lung shot. Bullet didn't upset very much, small exit wound. Coyote went 300-400 yards leaving almost no bloodtrail before dying. Based on that one experience, I'd recommend a 69 tipped matchking or maybe a vmax, elderly, or ballistic tip. But I'd be wary of the std smk with any impact velocities below 2300-2400 fps.

    I'm hunting sortof near Prescott in mid elevation. I am seeing lots of does in small groups, not seeing many bucks. No obvious signs of rutting yet. Let's all please remember to say roughly where we are, so that this info can be useful.

    Recommend a Concealed Carry Class

    Yup. But if a guy wants to carry when he's traveling to a few other states, having a permit is good. So I'm looking for a class
  6. Who can recommend a good concealed carry class? I'm looking for a simple and straightforward class. Nothing too long or fancy. I'm located in the east valley.
  7. Thanks for the advice so far. Great tips.

    NEW Go Pro Hero 4 Black

    Sorry, I should've updated this. It sold on ebay for $350 a couple days back. Any other CW.Com guys interested could pick one up there for around the same price.
  9. I want to get out and find some more good places to hunt. I also want to be productive when I'm out looking for new places. What do you look for when finding new coyote (and other predators) habitat? What types of water sources are best? How far from water? Close to roads? Far back in? Certain vegetation or terrain? Do you hike around and look for sign? Drive around calling and listening at night? Now that you have found good habitat, what do you look for when choosing locations to make stands? I'm based out of Mesa, so most of the time I'm chasing predators in Sonoran desert type terrain on day trips. I'm not asking where you hunt, I'm asking for tips on the best way for me to find places to hunt.

    Utah Monroe mountain deer muzzy tag

    I've been archery deer hunting in that unit a few times. It's not the easiest unit to tag a big buck in. There's lots and lots of four wheelers and UTVs riding around certain areas. The deer are pretty spread out during the early season. And I can't say I've seen more than just a couple mature bucks. But it's a beautiful mountain with deer all over. My best advice is to do some scouting, and then if you're not seeing deer, change what you're doing or where you're doing it. This year I'll be one mountain south of you, on mt dutton, for the rifle hunt. Good luck.
  14. I'm in the East Valley... So I've tried taking a couple young neighbor kids (12 and 13) out for rabbits without any success. They are as determined as big game hunters going for bighorn sheep. I've been hiking around all over looking for rabbits so the next trip I take these kids on isn't a bust. But it seems like the only places I can find bunnies are subdivisions and golf courses. I've even tried a few spots that are riiiight about a quarter mile from a golf course. But it seems like all the bunnies stick to those no hunting zones like glue. Anybody know of places reasonably near the east valley a guy can go mentor some young hunters? Cottontails or jacks are fine. The boys want to skin and tan them, despite my warnings that desert bunnies may not have very nice fur... So really any rabbit would do for these guys.
