Hello all, I just found this site. I know a lot of you guys on here from AZOD site. It looks like another good site. For those that don't know me, my name is Scott Buxton. I love to hunt mostly archery and I also hang glide. My dad has been hang gliding for 32 years now. He taught me how when I was 16 years old. I work as a tanker driver hauling gas to most Quik Trips around the valley. I look forward to spending time on Arizona Hunting Today forum.
~Scott~

OK, I know where Carr Canyon is. It is the flying site we call Miller Canyon. Yes, I have flown there twice. I had to goto Google Earth and look up Miller Canyon and I found Carr Canyon right next to the flying site Miller Canyon.

Yup, thats the place. When you come off Carr Canyon you are looking into Miller Canyon that is probably why you call it Miller. You are landing in the field almost in our front yard, as a matter of fact over the past 30 years we have had some land in our front field. We are at the end of the dirt road nestled right up against the mountain. If you ever get down this way again let me know, your more than welcome to come up for a cold one. Also I would suggest that you let your fellow hang-gliders know that they will probably be losing their landing field in the near future, all that property has been sold to a housing developer.....

I hate to see all of the habitat being ruined by our need for housing. I can't cry too loud, as I, and every one of us, is the root cause.

I often dream of visiting not just Arizona but other great states in this country about 100 to 150 years ago.
Does or has anyone ever read Terry C. Johnson's books? Sadly, he died a few years ago of prostate cancer. In my opinion, he was one of the best writers of mid-American (mountain men, trappers, etc) fictional history whose books I've had the pleasure of reading.
Any other favorite authors of yours?

Oh. Excuse me for my lack of manners... WELCOME!!!
