    Goulds in 31

    After gathering 17 bonus points, I drew this tag! I have never been there but I was extremely tired of waiting. It is crazy to me that even with 17 points, I could only draw the second hunt. There are only 3 tags on each hunt, so it was tough to get drawn but I am so glad I did. This was the only tag I was certain to draw by the numbers. I am an avid spring hunter, 15 years on San Carlos and several hunts on public lands. I have harvested over 25 birds during spring hunts. If anyone has any information on the bird population, areas to hunt, and places to start, I would really appreciate and direction/guidance you may have to offer. I want to shoot this bird with my bow, but will not eat this tag. Very dedicated to achieving the Arizona Slam with my bow. I have heard that game and fish has trapped birds here, and some years the numbers are down. Any help would be great.

    Diamond Infinite Edge Pro LH

    This was my wife’s bow. She shot it maybe 20 times and decided she wanted a little more advanced bow. This is basically brand new, purchased from Bull Basin in Tucson. I’d like to get $200 for it. It’s a great starter bow. Bow is Left handed.
  16. I have a 2017 Hoyt Carbon Defiant Turbo in absolutely excellent condition. I got the bow from Archery HQ in chandler. When I bought this bow I was moving quite often and did not shoot it all that much. Original strings still on the bow but waxed often. The bow comes fully set up besides having arrows and a release. It comes at 60-70 lbs and 28-30 inch draw length. I will help you get the bow set up since I work at a bow shop saving you about 50$ on a tune and full set up. We will have to do it while im am not at work so there is not tie to the shop due to liability reasons. Dont get it confused though that this bow is in amazing condition just had to make that clear. It has a Axt carbon 7 pin sight, Hoyt ridge reaper quiver 6 arrow, Trophy taker smack down with hamskea limb driven adapter, Limbsaver 9 inch stabilizer will have a grip if you prefer to have that. Also it has the peep and just needs to be set to your height. Pricing is very very fair so please do not waste my time with lowball offers. 1000$ for the total package seen here. Look at the items and notice that nothing on this bow is cheap its well worth the asking price. Phone number 480-859-zero zero zero eight

  22. Greetings all: If you haven't heard, the air gun has been approved for use with crossbow permits during archery seasons. R12-4-216 Crossbow Permit The Commission proposes to amend the rule to allow a Crossbow Permit holder to use a pre-charged pneumatic weapon, as defined under R12-4-301, using bolts or arrows for the take of wildlife. This change is proposed as a result of customer comments received by the Department. It's time for the archery community in Arizona to unify together and put a stop to this. Please take at look at the attached document and if you agree with this stance, keep reading. ABA Air Bow Position Statement.pdf Here's how YOU can make a difference: 1 Write a letter to our delegates. Tell them how you feel 2 Tell your friends, ask them to write a letter if they agree. 3 If you are involved in any other hunting/archery organization or community, inform them of the situation by passing along the attached document. Then ask them to write a letter, or public stance statement to show unity amongst groups. 4 Come to the next commissioners meeting April 6 & 7th in Phoenix. Stand behind us as we stand up to oppose this. Send your letters to: Jay Cook - jcook@azgfd.gov rulemaking@azgfd.gov Hope everyone is having an excellent day Cheers

    Feral Hogs in California

    Greetings: I hope to find everyone doing well, and thanks in advance for reading this thread. I've got a buddy in LA area new to hunting. He had his first ever hunt (archery deer in california) last year which was unsuccessful. I had him put in for Javelina in AZ this year and he drew. We filled 3/4 tags from one herd on our third day hunting and I'm very happy to have helped my buddy, a new hunter, successfully harvest his first animal, especially archery harvest. On topic - He has a ton of interest in pursuing hogs in Cali and would like to take me out there to hunt them as well. I've been doing my best to give him general advice about hunting hogs. The basics like using maps to stay on public land, looking for sign, feral hog patterns (based on what i've seen on hunting shows) etc. He tells me that theres a big problem with these hogs in the wine country. My first instinct is to tell him to make cold calls to properties and see if anyone has a problem that he can assist with. Moral of the story - I don't know the first thing about california, but at the very least I'd really like to get him a starting point on where to "LOOK" for some hogs. What do you all recommend? Seeking permission on private land? Hunting public land on the outskirts of private land? Could really use anyone's advice on where or how to even start looking for suitable places that we might be able to hunt hogs. Not asking for GPS coords or anything specific. Just a starting point of where or how to begin looking for an area that we could hunt. Thanks in advance, looking forward to hearing back from you all Hunter
  25. Another January has come and gone, chasing coues deer with a bow around southeastern Arizona. I'm already planning eleven months ahead and imagining how it may go. I had so many plans for this year that just didn't happen, although I can't complain considering the way it turned out. There's always seems to be too much to hunt and never nearly enough time. Unfortunately, some of those canceled plans included hitting the hills with some great friends but I was fortunate enough to spend a little time in the field with my wonderful wife. She joined me on the first day of a three day backpack hunt. I had previously stashed water on the mountain, while accompanying my dad on a lion with my daughter along as well, always a pleasure. All in search of a big buck that barely escaped me last year, on January 1st. Unable to locate him again and having a failed stalk, on a different deer, behind me. I moved down my list of places to hunt. Due to an old neck injury flare up and a broken bow sight in December, I found myself going through the motions and wandering through the woods with a general lack of confidence. Since I wasn't able to shoot as much as normal. I did see some great bucks though and was elated the day I relocated a buck from two January's ago. A buck with split g2's, split g3's and as much gnarly character as I've ever seen. Another really awesome buck I spotted during a storm a couple days before finding my buck. Some great bucks for the future. My buck when I first saw him again this year. Back in 2016 when I stalked this buck, my friend Creed watched from just above a small saddle that overlooked the bowl. The wise old deer busted me well before shooting range and beelined it for the saddle next to Creed. He saw what was happening and hustled to reach a good position. They about ran into each other and both momentarily froze. After drawing on the buck, Creed responsibly refused to rush his shot and it was nothing but a close call. The deer took off and never slowed down until he was out of sight over a huge ridge, far to the northwest. From then on, I referred to him as the buck that Creed passed, always receiving a look and comment in return. Within a few minutes of studying him, this year, I had no doubt I had turned up the same old bruiser. He had lost quite a bit of tine length and body size but his frame with downward turned main beams was unmistakable. We reviewed some pictures and videos later and became more convinced of his identity, with the same color tail as well. So, this time he was about a mile away and the stalk to get around in good position would take hours through rough, thick country. I was pleasantly surprised as I reached my landmark above the draw he shared with a few does, when I immediately spotted him. I had plenty of time and the conditions were doable with extreme care to go slow and quiet. As I was moving forward, I noticed a doe to my right, staring at me. She wasted no time vacating straight towards my target and taking everything with her. I made it to 170 yards and then rushed the final stalk, dummy! A long discouraging walk back to my truck. After turning the place upside down, I couldn't believe my eyes nearly a week later. I watched the same buck disappear over a small rise, right at daylight. Moving into the next big canyon had the result I was hoping for but I had to dog trot up a long ridge to hopefully find him, yet again. I gasped for breath almost an hour later, while admiring my new perch. I could see everywhere he should be, I patiently sat right there for about the next ten hours convinced I'd turn him up any second. Every deer I saw was a heart rush to only be let down that it wasn't him. At least I witnessed some awesome rutting activity form there. I left most of my stuff behind and began the dark climb down, knowing I needed to return before daylight the next day. I felt some hesitation leaving my bow, binos, spotter and everything else for a lone night in the wild but didn't want myself getting lazy the next morning and settling for a lesser glassing position. Also I think it's funny that I left my lunch up there to eat the next day too, focusing on looking for my buck I completely forgot to eat it. Well, it's all about ups and downs and regardless of effort, the next day was a bust. My wheels were turning, I had to figure this out and make some decisions for the next day. Some bucks I saw while trying to relocate my buck. Still not knowing what to do, racing against time as the sky lit up, I moved up the familiar ravine towards multiple glassing options. I decided to move back west where I had originally saw him. It wasn't far for a rutting buck to cruise and it had been a couple days so who knew what else may show up. Agonizing over which spot was better, I finally started out of the ravine to my left. Climbing through the scrub oak and mesquites, doing my best to navigate correctly. I chose the more ideal spot to see more country vs. the better position to stalk from, once and if I had a deer spotted. After a slow morning, I finally spotted a couple does exactly where I had stalked him the week before. My heart took the abuse as I searched for his grand presence, no luck. Getting lost in my binos, I continued to scan. Holding my breath for a break, picking apart every shape. Suddenly, I couldn't have missed him. After having looked a dozen times, there he stood! I began to shake and did my best at a quick,hand held, phone video through my spotter. He was about 600 yards away but, I carefully packed up and snuck backwards out of sight. Knowing I'd be blind for at least thirty minutes I tried to hold a steady pace. Working down the backside of my hill, I reached the ravine and circled toward the other spot I had almost started at that morning. I would have been only 300 yards away and in a better position to begin my stalk, oh well. Stepping above the privacy of the thick cut, I realized he was where I had left him with a quick glance. Showing the patience of an old buck, with his doe a short distance away. I returned to the very bottom of my chosen traveling corridor and eased my way up, closing the distance. I would be below them but the wind was good and if anything, they were slowly working their way towards me, on the thick north facing slope. I checked my position by poking into view a few times and trying to see him again. A couple of the times I got no reassurance but continued on. One last check, a sky lined doe was about 200 yards up the hill and I heard several grunts! I picked out his rack through some mountain mahogany. After careful advance, I found myself in the brush with them. Things weren't really looking good but I had no good reason to believe they had left. With each small, slow step I dissected the vegetation through my binos. I found a doe nibbling the leaves off a scrub oak and my heart started racing. Around fifty yards and she had the same distinct white spots below her ears. This was it! Pounding hooves stole my attention as a doe raced up to my right, with a buck on her tail. She looked right at me and spun around, darting away. The buck remained oblivious as I could possibly have arrowed him. I looked back and the other doe seemed unbothered. She was coming down hill, closing the distance for me. She angled to my left and I picked up movement behind her. As she moved through a slight opening I ranged the best I could and hooked up my release. The movement was him! His rack was all I could see, literally. Floating above the shrubs ten feet behind his doe. I was drawn and hoping he didn't stop and look because there was no shot yet. To my dismay, he stopped in the opening. I split my 30 and 40, my bow jumped! I was waiting for that one thing to go wrong but knew it was over as my arrow disappeared in the sweet spot. Wow!!! All the emotions, hard work, pain, discomfort and everything else suddenly piled up and I thought I might collapse, I was exhausted. He was out of sight right away but I had no doubt he was laying a short distance away. I was standing no more than fifty yards from where Creed stood the day he "passed" this buck two years ago. Haha I found him right away, he had gone about forty yards. I was in disbelief and I still am. An old mature giant of the coues country, in my opinion. This deer was as much as thirty percent bigger bodied when we saw him before. With teeth worn down flat and some missing, I have no doubt he was near the end. Possibly may have been his last January anyway, had he slipped past me. Hopefully I have many more to come. This wouldn't have been possible without the support from my wife. I've said before, the amount of patience it takes to spot and stalk coues deer with a bow pales in comparison to the patients it takes to be married to me. Thanks for reading and good luck scouting!
