  1. I saw a couple of newly finished Russian bears in a taxidermy shop in Flag several years ago. They were amazing. No idea on price or size or anything else.

    AZGFD Password Reset Issues

    Not sure. I had not had any trouble logging in to AZGFD for a long time. Suddenly I could not login. After multiple calls, it seems they did something to finally fix it, b/c the password reset worked. But I was trying with Chrome, Firefox, IE, clearing the browser cache every time, and none of these browsers were working for me, for awhile. Suddenly it started working.

  8. Looks like his ear is tagged so he may already have 1 or 2 strikes against him? :-( Or maybe my eyes are going on me.
  9. Thanks for sharing. That was crazy!! Both those guys lucky they walked away with only a cut finger.

    Hunting w/Non-Lead

    I realized when I was lucky to draw Kaibab many years back I would need to develop a lead-free load and just stick with it. I have yet to take it out to further distances, but it seems I've read everything under the sun about 1) lead-free loads work fine at distance and 2) lead-free loads work disastrously at distance...If I ever go to farther distances, it may be a concern; I'm not sure what the latest findings are on lead-free loads working at long distance. Need to be able to shoot at shorter distances before taking to longer, regardless.

    Lion attack on my trail cam?

    I also thought at first guess pic 3 is a lion's tail - but could be a leg, who knows. Too bad lion season is closed in most or all places in Az until Aug 24 thanks to the new regs this year.
  12. Thanks all! Yep, I'm amazed at how quick it scavenging happened, and it happens quicker than I thought. A long time ago I lost a knife in a gutpile and I went back about a month later, and noticed a similar skeleton as what rossislider posted. So that being my only experience, I guestimated it happened probably in a month. But above article sounded like a lot quicker. Recently I came upon a cow carcass that still smelled pretty uck and had quite a few vultures on it, but from a distance it looked like it was down to a skeleton already so I assumed it happened maybe a week or two prior. After reading the above article I realized it could have been 24-48 hours, and that I probably should have checked for tracks around it (assuming bear or lion kill but could have just been a natural death) but never did. Thanks all for the interesting stories and info. Lonne

    Recommend me some books/novels please

    I highly recommend Hunting Trips of a Ranchman and the Wilderness Hunter by Teddy Roosevelt, if you have not already browsed: https://www.amazon.com/Hunting-Trips-Ranchman-Wilderness-Hunter/dp/0679602348/ref=sr_1_24?ie=UTF8&qid=1532041238&sr=8-24&keywords=theodore+roosevelt+hunting I have only read sections of it, but it's excellent.
