Man I’m jealous. I went January 2004, swore I’d go back before I got too old. I may waited too long at 67. Hunted Chiricahua Mtns, close to Portal. We all 3 recurves had opportunities at both we just couldn’t seal the deal.

Hoover, better than we anticipated. Last second wind changed at 50 yes busted my buddy. He could have closed the deal at 30 or less. Other buddy had a big muley fast walk in front of him broadside. Just as arrow was getting there slight elevation change just enough arrow slipped over inches. For me I had a rutting coues chasing 2doe. Smart buck stopped 20 yds from me with a fat cedar bush between us. He just calmly walked straight away. Best hunt we’ve ever been on.
As for recurves...patience and practice.

Have fun, be careful and good luck! I was supposed to go last January but I broke my back the week before we planned on leaving. This year I planned on going this upcoming Wednesday but my wife and I came down with Covid so not going to happen again. Looking forward to hearing about your trip though. Excited for you.

I just landed back from their after visiting my daughter in Scottsdale. We took couple hikes and even went to Sedona yesterday.

Bucket list is to hunt there one day. I just need to rekindle her archery bug, so she can host me!

Good luck and keep us posted!

Cold night last night. Truck said 13 at daylight. Went to drive up on ridge to glass and saw a buck and a bunch of does 200 yds from camp. Jumped out and made a play. Cody got to 100 before a side side came in and ran them out. Back on the hunt for more deer now. Found 5-6 cous deer doe but no other bucks so far.

Should have been there Sunday the 10th, but due to work I had to cancel. Deciding if we are to brave the early season now.

Looks like Exo packs?

Heading out when we get most things wrapped up at work. The Arizona boys scouted some today for us. Not looking forward to that drive but it should be a good time. Probably buying a deer tag as well. First time trying it out there so we will see.

Had a slight delay a hour away from our spot . A buddy was driving my truck and got pulled over. Highway patrol told him and showed him a pic of a giant muley killed just south of Drake.

Keep at it!
This would have been my second hunt with my pack as well. I have the 3200, it great for days hunts and up 3 days backpack hunts, but I kinda of wish I would have got the 4800 for longer backpacking hunts.

Had a great hunt. In deer every day but unable to close the deal. Memories made were worth more than any tag on an animal. Will definitely do it again.
