    After reading about and talking to several guys who had their apps screwed up by the pro app services and get $20 gift cards as compensation, not sure why anyone would continue using them. Heck almost every F&G makes it so easy with online apps these days.

    That being said, must have been one hell of a division to break up the HF crew like this. Curious to see how HF quality is affected.

    I apply in 7 western states myself. Tell me what state, weapon & animal. I'll tell you what unit for free! Apps are not hard. The MRS section Eastman"s has is all you need to look at!

    If all you're doing is applying, Eastmans might do it. If you want to draw a tag you best look a few other places.

    for me it has mainly been sheep tags I am applying for. I missed some deadlines a few years ago, and didn't want that to happen again, so I went to the tag service. mainly desert sheep

    Question, did any of the app services ask for your point totals when applying to AZ and then give you a list of the only hunts you would have any chance to draw?

    Haha all you need to do is sign up for free at HunterAlerts.com and they will text message you reminders 5 days, 3 days & 1 day prior to any application deadline you specify. That is what I do. Free is a hellofalot cheaper.

    HF has already made one mistake. Creating a forum, but making you pay $100 extra to access it? Really? There are like a thousand free hunting forums out here. Charging any fee creates a barrier to entry that will highly restrict participant numbers, and thus usefulness.

    I received advertisement from the HF last week. Couldn't believe they want customers to pay an extra $100 to use the forum and some of the other benefits you use to get for the $100. I always used the HF as a way to weed out units rather than picking units to apply in. The top five units they pick almost always have astronomical odds. Can't afford the landowner tags they peddle so I stoppped subscribing. Not bashing the HF, it just wasn't right for me and Eastman's fits my needs much better.
