  1. Small Game
    Hey, as my name implies I like to hunt small game here in az, mainly in Apache Junction where I live. I usually hunt rabbits, quail, dove, and have gone out coyote twice but yet to get one. I'm also interested in duck. I'm looking for a group of people to go with regularly this year on sundays...

    Hey! Quail season is coming around and for the past two years they've eluded me. I was out near my mom's rabbit hunting and I'm hearing a lot of them. I'm also seeing a bunch run along the ground and could have definitely tagged a few. Did anyone want to team up later this year to try and...

    I just ordered a Primos Alpha Dog since the price looks like it came down a bit. I have been using a foxpro spitfire (?) with little success. I was thinking they have heard all of those old sounds so much they know to turn the other way. What are you guys running? Pros/cons, reviews, success...

    Loving AZ so far but the guys I do know here do not hunt. I come from PA so this terrain is definitely new to me. I am not looking for anyone's spots. I have no issues studying maps and scouting but I am looking for some like minded hunting buddies. I brought some of my decoys but got rid of my...

    Mearns opens on Friday this week. Mearns are always harder than desert quail to get population estimates on prior to the season but lets keep our fingers crossed for a decent year. Habitat looks decent. We had a good start to monsoon but it petered out in Aug and Sep so we will see. If you...

    Was down on Buenos Aires NWR this week harassing an endangered species. Was doing it with permission of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. They are getting ready to release some pen raised birds back into the wild and were looking for folks with dogs to point and flush the birds to instill a fear...

  12. Polls, Suggestions, Tips & "How To's"
    I see a lot of new people are joining us on this forum and think this is great. I also see that a lot of new people are kind of lost on how to get started scouting so I figured we could all pitch in ideas on how to scout from your computer before getting your boots dirty. Here are a few tips I...

I have heard they have been seen on the mogollon rim before but i always kinda thought it was an urban legend. It...

    I've been talking to my father in law about taking a trip to hunt some Grouse. Where do we start? I think I found some in 27 a few years ago.
