    Duwane Adams ?

    If the AZGFD can conceivably make a baiting charge stick Duwane retiring from guiding won't help his cause. Baiting is a license revocable offense and that would defeat his reason for retiring since he wants to enjoy hunting with his grandchildren and children.

    Duwane Adams ?

    I believe it was 1998 but a young man working for Adams was busted by AZGFD but I don't believe Adams got into any trouble for it himself the guide lived in San Manuel. Haven't heard of any other issues since then. Plenty of AZ guides or guides that work for big name AZ guides have been busted for various violations over the years. Chad Smith, John McClendon, Steve Ward, Jed Larson, Ryan Hatch even Blake Owens worked for a guiding outfit I believe. Where there is big money to be made and even bigger egos there is bound to be some foul play going on. Right now Wade Lemons out of Utah has a couple felony charges over hanging him one of them has to do with a bear killed by Trump Jr.

    It doesn't stop illegals can't imagine it slows wildlife down.

    Rim lakes?

    Knoll lake is barely off the boat ramp and has been stocked twice in the last 2 weeks. Blue Ridge is low but you can easily launch kayaks there and has been stocked with probably 7-9000 rainbows in the last 3 weeks.

    Deer/Sheep Regs

    Far more grandmas, grandpas, moms and dads applying for tags that dont hunt just to transfer a tag than antis hurting draw odds.

    Deer/Sheep Regs

    Antis would have to buy a license and a tag, highly doubt they would spend the money knowing it would directly benefit the exact thing they despise.
  9. It's OTC so "antis" don't have to put in for tags. The reason it hasn't happened for bear and lion is you're required to physically check in your bear or lion. It would take a large amount of man power but AZGFD should have the same requirement for archery hunters with the mandatory harvest reporting.

    Antis at it again. Lions and Bears.

    The recommendations that were proposed are exactly what passed on Friday, so the only spring hunts for 2023 bear are the non-permit hunts listed.
  12. When the department brings the commission orders for deer to the commission in December make sure and send in your comments or if you can show up in person and fill out a blue card. The same guy from the United States Humane society was at the meeting again today and spoke about the lion and bear orders, he's becoming a familiar face at the meetings.
  13. I believe he felt the seasons were to short. The department has made no effort to hide these limited entry hunts as being pure money makers to help meet their $10M in 10 years goal.
  14. Commision approved all the orders, archery harvest reporting will be just like bear and lion, you can either call it in or do it online. Order 30 this year will be much like last year with 4 mule deer hunts, 3 whitetail, 3 elk and 1 goulds turkey. Commissioner Davis wants to see the hunts more like the raffle and auction with year long seasons so expect to see some changes when they are brought up again at the December meeting.
