NOT happy right now.....

Scheduled to leave for my first ever pig hunt, on a 270,000 acre, no fences ranch, next Friday.  I get a text over the weekend to check out their website.  Not what anyone wants to see.......

OK, now take your hammer and

OK, now take your hammer and hit your big toe as hard as you can.  You will soon forget that they canceled your hunt. :rotest1

 

It's too bad that they don't have any javelina tags left in the unit that I am going to be hunting or else I would invite you to Arizona.

That would be cool sometime. 

That would be cool sometime.  Vince (BikerRN) invited me to go coues hunting with him this fall near Tucson, which is something I always wanted to do.  Maybe I will use the $500 that I was going to use on the pig hunt, and instead plan a couple day trip over there for coues.  I have a couple months till the deadline to decide.

Sorry to hear about your cancelled hunt. You always have an open invite if you like to hunt Southern NM or West Texas.

Wow, that sucks for sure.

Wow, that sucks for sure. Sorry about the misfortune, but at least it looks like you have plenty of options if you want to travel somewhere else.

If your serious about hunting in AZ you better check the dates with Vince. He's going to be hunting goats in Wyoming with me looks like the 3rd week of October. I wanted to get down there for the deer but with my hunts here and the later than planned goat hunt it will probably have to wait till next year.  Still not out of the question though.

You are also going to need a few points to draw a coues tag.  Those are a premium tag for down there.

Due to the proximity of the border in the unit he hunts there are actually usaully leftover tags. Seems nobody wants to deal with the problems.

After taking a quick look it appears that unit 36 has hundreds of unspoken for tags in the draw. I'm not sure the unit that is hunted though.

I have a friend that used to

I have a friend that used to do a lot of hiking down in the area south of Tucson.  He gave it up after he returned to his truck one day and found some of the immigrants from south of the border trying to break into it.  A couple of shots with his .45 scattered them with no damage to his truck.  He did like it in that he would bring home a lot of backpacks that were left by the immigrants.  He would give them out to school kids to pack their books in every year and he still has a couple hundred left in his garage. 

I read one thread where Vince said that he wasn't bothered by the problems in the area but I guess that I am getting old.  I just as soon not have to deal with them, and I would be almost scared of what I might do if confronted by any of them.  There is even a area here in Colorado that I have hunted and a friend still hunts that I won't go back into because of a problem that I had with a outfitter in the area.

Well, considering that's my field of expertise Wink, I think it'll be okay.

Yeah, Vince said that I should be able to get a tag.  If not, no biggie.  Worth a try though.

bad deal

OUCH! I'm very sorry to hear that bad news Sean. I know how very much you were looking forward to that hunt. Perhaps you'll need to take a trip and join our group in Georgia some time. You'd fit right in with the retired military and DEA agents among us.....lol.  Thumbs up

Sorry to read about your hunt.  That is a major bummer!  At least it sounds like they are refunding any deposits that you might have already put down.  I would be more worried if their website disappeared completely, and you couldn't reach them to try to get your money back.  Atleast now you can divert those funds to a different hunting experience instead of losing out entirely.
