    gah..i dislike the drive.  i have 19 hours of solo driving..all of my friends over spent for the holidays and they all bailed on me. :(

    so i am eating all the fuel cost on this one.  bummer-city.

    javalina tags are sold out..so it will be all deer.¬† i am hoping and praying for a Couse deer, but i will arrow the first legal buck i see..mulie’s too!¬† this hunt is brutal.¬† i have yet to close the distance on a buck..i’ve done it once, but got messed up by another unknowing passing hunter mid-stalk.
    i have 3-4 days solo until my brother rolls in.  hope to pull it off early so we can focus on his deer.

    i am going to shoot a mechanical head this time.¬† my bow is shooting lights out up to 80 yards..the mech head is a tiny bit of an advantage..even if it is all in my head.¬† i’ll take it.

    i’m sleeping in my truck.¬† haha..Glock under my camp pillow.¬† i HAVE to do this hunt.¬† i buy a point every year, and you cannot unless you buy a license.¬† and if you buy a license, i wont waste the $$ and not hunt it.

    any reports coming out of AZ this year?¬† yet?¬† weather looks ridiculously mild.¬† lows in the mid 40′s…sheesh.¬† highs in the 80′s i bet.

    What part of AZ?

    I reluctantly had to go work in AZ for 9 days and just returned.¬†¬† Wasn’t looking forward to the trip.¬†¬† To my suprise, I ended up in a beautiful part of the state that I loved visiting.¬†¬† Show Low, PineTop, Whiteriver, AZ area.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Saw 6 elk and 4 mulies.¬†¬† I had no idea I was going to be in elk country.¬†¬†¬† Many of the local folks I worked with were active elk hunters.¬†¬†¬† The mule deer looked great standing in the ponderosa pines.

    The drive¬†between ¬†Globe and¬†Show Low AZ ¬†was stunning beautiful.¬†¬† Salt River canyon area, “the little Grand Canyon”.

    Have a great time!¬† Looking forward to a recap of your adventure.¬† Try not to go down any slopes that you can’t get back up, but bring plenty of water just the same.¬† Good luck.
