    Wounding bulls

    0 for 8 is a very bad statistic for sure. I don't think an individual wounded animal means anything necessarily unethical happened. I consider myself a very accomplished bow hunter. When I shoot, I shoot ethical shots, but buck fever and life happens. Quick, clean kills are always the goal and design, but I don't know anyone personally that has killed over 10 animals with ALL perfect shots. Its not possible to control ALL factors in hunting situations, rifle or bow. Hunting is not a simulation and humans and the animals are not robots. If you hunt long enough, you will eventually have some "moment of truth" experiences that will show you the truth too. We try to mitigate all factors possible, but even "good shots" can lead to a lost animal unfortunately.

    Dead Head

    Nice 5. He would have been a pretty nice 6 point on a normal or good moisture year. Could you tell what spelled his fate?

    Lake Powell Houseboating

    Budget $1,000 for non-alcoholic drinks alone, especially if you have kids haha! My suggestion from having gone many times is to keep looking until you find a beach that you will be happy with and that doesn't have too many weeds/sticker in the sand or too many other people close by. But I'm more of a private person and have lots of kids:) Probably goes without saying, but also best if your parking spot can NOT be facing/open to the channel or any big bay as well(less waves, wakes, wind).

    Mazaltan wilderness

    Your premise is often true. But, it can get to the point where the reverse is true in some places. The more dedicated hunters there are that are convinced that further away from roads is better, the more company you will have further away from roads(unless you think you are truly in better shape or far more dedicated than the rest of the hard core hunter population and are willing to go in 6 miles instead of 3 etc). I have seen this trend more and more over the last 5 years through several states, hunts, and just last week shed hunting haha. When I was a kid, we never saw anyone away from the roads and now I seem to see more and more every year. If more and more people are willing to get away from roads, then we may need to flip around and start hunting closer to roads again to get away from people!

    Trail Cam BAN

    Government usually fails when it attempts to fix a non-existent problem. Hopefully they will refuse to take action this time. 99% of the state and hunts and cameras have no issues. Leave them alone.

    15A, 15B, 18A elk hunt (antlerless)

    The elk move around alot and can be in very different places each year. I would just find some nice public land and do some glassing and hiking until you find where they are at in November, keep moving until you find some fresh sign or start seeing some.

    New 1/2 Ton - What would you pick?

    Very few Chevy supporters it seems. I have a 2017 Silverado Z71, 5.3, put aftermarket shocks and larger tires on and it drives amazing around town and my beloved dirt roads of Northern AZ. I have not done much towing though, just our wakeboard boat. Is that where people feel a 1/2 ton silverado lacks? I have never owned a camp trailer but am interested in getting one in the short term. Am I in for disappointment towing with a 1/2 ton 5.3? I really don't want to go to a 3/4 ton because of how stiff they ride on dirt.

    Major winter storm to hit high country

    13 inches at my office in Kingman, measured in the middle of the parking lot. 3,589 feet elevation at 9:36am. Snow still coming down.

    CC Hit

    I was just starting to internally appreciate the department for being more consistent with the draw... then they had the system failure and deadline extension last week, so now I have to wait another couple years to build up trust again:)

    new to shed hunting, advice?

    Nobody really shed hunts around Kingman, density is just so low, I probably average like 1 crappy bleached muley shed per 15 miles here local, come one come all! Elk sheds in the Hualapais are worse than that. The good(and therefore secret) spots are far away. I have actually found in the mule deer areas I have had good luck in that there have been higher concentrations of sheds on the north and east facing slopes of the bigger hills, but I find them all over.

    License Convenience Fee

    Guess it will come down to how far you live from both, how much the fee is, and what your gas mileage looks like. With fees pretty low, gas will cost you more(for most people in the state) than the convenience fee real fast.

    License Convenience Fee

    OTC tags is the problem. I wonder what Walmart will do, which I'm sure is the number one seller of OTC tags and licenses in the state.
