Thanks guys, I honestly don't feel as bad about it now. I will head out there and give it a shot at filling my freezer. I need to start doing some research on where to start. With a couple of other trophy hunts ahead of this one, I guess I have put it on the back burner.
Unfortunately AZ does not offer any options for a mistake made other than to donate the tag or to give it to one of your children. $600 is a lot of money to me not to mention the loss of bonus points! Don't get me wrong, I love hunting in AZ. I drew a Kaibab 12AW deer tag last year and had a wonderful hunt. I didn't kill, but saw and experienced some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen.
Catahoula, any help from your hunt would be greatly appreciated.
Also Catahoula, why not Boquillas ranch?
They started charging money to access the ranch.. Kind of a user fee I guess..
Grand Slam #1005 + 2: Dall (1986 Yukon), Fannin/Stone (1987 Yukon), Bighorn (1988 Colorado Unit S-26), Stone (1995 British Columbia), Desert (2001 Nevada Unit 161), Bighorn (2009 Wyoming Unit 5)
Catahoula, Have you gotten back from your hunt? If so, how did you do?
C'mon, let's see some pics?
