'morning All,

At least with all this Heat, we are sweating off those extra pounds!

I just had to go down and do a scouting/hiking trip on my Az. Bull elk tag unit.

Thanks for taking the time to view All

"Is the drought as bad as they say in AZ".... no, it's worse!! Horrible conditions right now. The monsoons need to drop a couple feet of water anywhere and everywhere!

Might want to keep up on the news. Coconino National Forest will go into complete closure starting 8am Wednesday. I expect the other forests’ to follow suit. Fires are forcing evacuations throughout the Rim country. Communities just south of Flagstaff are now in the “set” status for a fire that blew up. Your scouting trip might be cut short.

I like to hike up one side of a big draw ridgeline and then come down the ridgeline of the other side glassing and covering as much ground as I can on that type of 'U' scouting hike.

Over the years of hunting this unit of and on, I found this nice water source down in the bottom of this 'hole' draw.

It's so steep and rocky that the rain really goes down into this bottom area.

There’s nothing like having an archery bull tag in your pocket! Glad you had a good trip. The timing was perfect. Now everything is closed and we must wait until it rains. A LOT!

Hey Thanks Dan.

The Airbnb gal that I stayed in has text me saying they are getting some good rain in the afternoons and her brother lives by the South Entrance to the Grand Canyon and he can't get up his driveway from the flash flood water!!

Good luck, Robb

Yes sir! Yesterday was our first “real” rain over much of N. Arizona. It poured rain for a couple of hours here in Prescott. It’s an excellent start!
