    AZ Javelina Hunt (Success)

    i don't eat them. Usually let the guide find a home which is probably the ranch hands. Nic name 'Stink Pig' is fitting. They are funny little critters and per my bother who lives in Prescott they are hard on trash bins and Halloween pumpkins from the porch.

    Sure, Get on water early by 0600 or so. I use Windsor Beach. Try Chrome Black or Blue Rattletraps. Work the points and look for shad/strippers working surface. Swith to bait if you really want to catch fish. Fish the old river bed around trees. Chop and use lots of anchovie chum to get...

    Stripers on LHC

    Been working in PHX and ducking to house in Havasu for weekends. When wind is down, rattle traps and topwater lures have been working early. Bait on bottom after that. On Sunday morning I did see some poor bastard's bass boat high and dry, some 30 feet from water. It had ran ashore on Grass...

    Havasu top water going off

    Got a call from my guide buddy on LHC to point out the fact the stripers have been on the top early in the morning. Chasing the shad to casting and trolling. Some triples on the troll to 6-7 pound range. Most locals release these and take the 1-3 pounders. Might have to mix the dove/striper...

    AZ draw results are in

    No love on the Elk either but was lucky to fill the last bull tag. Did get lucky on the deer draw and scored a tag for muzzleloader. Will have to do the solo thing. A good reason to get in shape and winterize the jeep. Will try the Seven 777 pellets this time.

    Car Thieves in Landings....must read.

    They stole my pick-up at Seaforth a few years back. When I walked up to the office to call the cops and get a ride, the counterman told me they had been taking them out of there all year. My partner told me on his last trip this year there was a person looking at their empty spot as well...

    Run and Gun Bones

    Son and I left Dana Landing about 9:30 for some Bonito action. Avoided the weekend at all costs. Did't bother with bait. Radio check return told me they were catching bones of the tanks area. We ran out there to see the privates crack sniffing the PBs. Thanks to some report I saw on BD we...

    Javalena Shootout in AZ

    This was BLM land. Hunt areas require some scouting. Water is the major thing in the desert hunting. I have also seen them in the Snow during Elk season. Bullets were just the junk Big 5 sells. We have killed quite a few with .243 and .222.
