OK FOLKS

MIKE AND I TALKED

We are thinking about Feb 02

I am open all weekend. But Saturday seems the best if traveling far.

Anyone interested???

I know this is VERY SHORT NOTICE....

Plus it is not the same time frame as the Dark Boards hunt.

If people want motel rates and all I can get them for anyone who needs.

Now we were not thinking of cooking or anything like that.

But there are some good places to eat and we can set up places and time when we get a better idea as to how many will make it and all.

So lets hear it form you NOW....

Where at Kevin. Wickenberg I could probably do but way down south is a little far for me (no funds). I understand you cant please all the people all the time, only some of the people some of the time. And thats cool with me. Let me know where the plan of attack is going to be held at and I'll see if I can make it. Lance

OK, I'm interested but where are we going? and how far is it from San Diego?

I would like to do the week-end, as a long trip for a one day hunt dos not make much sense.

Onefoot & Mike, let me know if I can help you guys out in any way.

Details will be forthcoming.
But, just so you guys can put a pin in your map, the hunt will begin in Benson. That's on Interstate 10, about 50 miles southeast of Tucson.

No extra curricular activities are scheduled at this time. Just a day of hunting. And it ought to be some fine hunting if the weather cooperates.

Stay tuned....Mike

Ok folks

Kevin Lukens /Joe and I went out north of Benson.

Man are there allot of coyotes out there.

Even with the full moon we still seen and heard many coyotes.

I will be posting more.

But one thing I will state for those that travel if you want to hunt Sunday too you are more than welcome to stay and hunt.

I and Mike will be posting a larger posting on where and when.

But I can tell you that there sai allot of great places that not many folks have hunted for years.

I will be posting more shortly..

It's getting to be crunch time. Any more Info? Im really going to try and make it. Thanks for the offer Mike McD. I'll probably take you up on it and I will probably have a traveling companion.

Okay Guys,
I see the natives are getting restless!

Who ----- All registered Predator Masters members
What ----- Predator Masters 2003 Mid-Winter Hunt
When ---- Saturday, Feb. 01, 2003 (And Sunday iffen ya want)
Where ----- Gas City, Benson, AZ

The "Mid-Winter" hunt will commence from the parking lot of Gas City. Gas City is located at Exit 302, the intersection of I-10 and Arizona State Hwy 90. The exit signs will say Sierra Vista and Fort Huachuca. The exit is located on the west end of the town of Benson. Benson is approximately 40 miles SE of Tucson.

We'll all meet at Gas City at 6:30 A.M. This place is a full service truck stop / store/ A&W root beer /pizza hut /etc. Located directly across the street is a KFC, Taco Bell, Subway, and McDonald's(gagggg!). Anyway, you can fill up your trucks and get a cup of joe in your blood to knock the last cobweb out of your eyes before it turns seriously daylight.

We'll circle the wagons on the south end of the big lot that the tractor trailers park in.

We'll pair up and hunt until noonish, meet back there for a midday meal/b.s. session, then pair up with somebody else and hit it til last light.

The day's activities will be whatever you feel like doing.

The following folks are familiar with the area and are planning on pairing up with the guys from other locales. There is plenty of prime coyote country available, so you probably won't run into anybody else you know during the day. Cochise County is the size of Rhode Island and Connecticut combined. Only 40% of the land is privately or corporately owned. But of course, some of the 'good" land is private. So goes it.

Mike McDonald
Kevin Bowler (Onefoot)
Kevin Lukens

If any other locals are available to guide, let us know. (Tiogan??)

Some of the other southwest hunters will probably be comfortable enough to strike out on their own with just a quick map consultation.

Anybody planning on staying over Saturday night to hunt on Sunday is more than welcome to do so. Onefoot and I will both be available to hunt on Sunday if guide type services are needed.

As is always the case, there is no fee for anything at a PM hunt. Just good hunting and good times.

If anybody is planning on staying at a motel during their stay, be advised.....Tucson is hosting the world's biggest Gem & Mineral Show during the period we are going to be hunting.

That means if you want to book a room in Benson, you better do it soon. Rates will not be discounted during that time and they are going to be filled up in the next week or so.

Sierra Vista is only 25 miles down the road, so you still have that lodging option if you need to exercise it. There should be plenty of rooms in S.V. Prices will probably be less in S.V. too.

I checked on the rates at a few of the motels in Benson. All of these are 2 to 10 minutes from Gas City.

I-10 Exit 302 Motels

Holiday Inn Express
630 S. Village Loop - Benson
1-888-263-2283
$99.99 per night
(some discounts are available, ask about them)

$72.95 tax included, single or double occupancy

Super 8 Motel
855 N.Ocotillo Rd - Benson
1-520-586-1530
www.super8.com
$58.46 single incl. tax
$67.30 double incl. tax

Best Western Quail Hollow Inn - Benson
699 N. Ocotillo Rd
1-520-586-3646
Toll free - 1-800-322-1850
For Reservations Call 1-800-528-1234
Single - $71.86 Incl. tax
Double $77.39 Incl. tax

If anyone is planning on bringing a camper (Barefoot), I can put you up at my place, and Onefoot has extended the same offer. I have an acre and a fenced backyard with an RV gate. Power is available, just bring an extension cord and you will be set. The house (kitchen, bath, etc.) is, of course, open to you also. As I mentioned, Onefoot has also extended the same invitation for his place, so the choice is yours. (P.S. Onefoot has about 15 kids. ) We both live in the county, so it's not like you are are going to be camping on Main St.

Terrain --- 3500 in the valleys to 10,000 ft mountains. Most areas will be mesquite mixed with yucca and grass lands. Mostly rolling hills with terrain getting more rugged as you approach mountain ranges.

If you are a ladder shooter, there are plenty of areas that would lend themselves to those with that particular fetish

Most roads are pretty good, and 4WD is not necessary for mere mortals.
There is public land consisting of BLM, national forest and state trust land. Some private land, primarily ranch land, is accessible and clearly marked as such. Some private land is posted.

Here is a link that will give you a general feel for the area. I think you will really like the area if you make it down for this hunt. Cochise County, Arizona

Weather could be anything from 20 degrees with blowing snow, to 70 degrees and sunny. Dress accordingly.

If there's anything I need to do, or if anybody needs additional details or assistance, just give me a shout at mmcdonald38XXX@yahoo.com (take out the XXX to send.)

Here's a bold prediction for all of you that are vacillating about whether or not you are going to make it to the hunt.

I PREDICT THAT THERE WILL BE MORE COYOTES PUT DOWN ON THE 1ST OF FEBRUARY THAN WERE SHOT AT LAST YEAR'S TOM MIX HUNT AND THIS YEAR'S GLOBE HUNT COMBINED!

If you bust loose for one hunt this year, this is the one you want to make it to.

Guy's

I have to concur with Mike that there is allot of great hunting areas down here.

I know we will get allot more than the last Mix and Globe hunts.

Coyotes and bobcats abound in all areas.

So plan the date os the 1 Feb. 03 and if you can spend one more day for allot more fun.

All this talk of hunting has me fired up. If I hadn't drawn a javelina tag for NM (2/1-15/03), I'd be swinging over your way. Oh yeah, I'm expecting my first kid on Jan. 28th Can't forget that!!!

Hey Desertram, how's this for a teaser?

I rolled through the security check point at the East Gate of Fort Huachuca this morning on my way to work. My wife was looking out the passenger side window and says "Hey, check that out!" I looked over to see a big ol' javalina bumming scraps from one of the Tennessee National Guard or reservists that have been called up to active duty and are pulling security guard duty here.(Thank you, Tennessee!) The guard was standing about 3 ft above the javalina on a raised porch in front of the trailer they are using for an office tossing what looked to be bread.

Does the southwest rock, or what?!?

How far of a drive is that from New Mexico? That would be a good opportunity for me to hunt with some veterans (so long as you all don't mind a 16 year old). I have an F-150 set up to sleep me comfortably, so that would save me the $$$ on a hotel. Thanks fellas.
