Our annual Globe hunt isn't a contest in any way, more of an opportunity to get to know the guys we've been talking to on the board all year and to have some fun. For many of us, me included, the hunting was secondary to the rest.

Having said that, here's the place to post what and how many.

I saw 6 coyote, several javelina, scads of beautiful country, and many old and new friends.

Shot one coyote but not recovered, and had a GREAT time.

I saw 2 coyotes but never fired a shot. My hunting partner shot 1 and missed a fox. I saw a lot of beautiful country and made some new friends that I plan on seeing again next year.

Saw a total of 7 coyotes, called 3, killed 0. Was surrounded by peccaries several times, but only had a solid visual once. Saw 2 eagles and a few roadrunners. One night I saw "BAR" "BAR" "BAR" on the machine I was playing. If I had bet "5" quarters instead of "2" I would have won five grand. But I'm not a gambler, so I can't complain.

I didn't hunt alot, but can't complain. Bill and I hunted together for the first time while at the Globe hunt, we usually hunt together but this is the first time on a PM hunt.

Thursady we got in 2 stands:
#1 - A bunch of javilena well several bunches really, they came in a sort of wave.

#2 - Bill called in a big coyote that I killed at about 100 yards.

Friday we got 4 stands in:
#1 - After looking on the wrong ridge for a lost call from Thursday night I called in a coyote to about 10 feet, yes feet. When I thumped her she turned into a ball and FELL down an extremely steep ridge line, ran dead for about 75 yards, jumped into a bush and got tangled, the first coyote I ever killed that was actually off the ground. It was a wasted shot she was walking dead. We returned on the correct ridge and found the lost call, always a good thing.

#2 & #3 - Blank

#4 - I called and took a bobcat

Saturday - after a late start we hunted most of the day but called nothing ... well except for the guys that called the exact same stand we just left. I'm sorry, who ever you were, but you weren't working a coyote, you were working another FoxPro.

Sunday we didn't hunt.

I made 2 stands with RagnCajn before the egg shoot, with nothing.

After the Egg shoot, I made 3 stands with Jason El Paso, but still nothing.

On Friday, I hunted with Crapshoot and Rustydog all day. About noon we had 2 coyotes come in, one of which I hit but ran off, and I scrared the other with 3 shots. Right before that Lance called in about a dozen javalina we saw from the truck with the FX5.

Saturday morning I hunted with Crapshoot again, and the first 2 stands of the morning, Lance killed a coyote. We heard a few more before noon but did not see any.

After lunce I went back with Crapshoot and Nikonut. First stand after lunch we had a gray fox backdoor us with no chance for a shot. Later that evening we say anther coyote about 300 yards, but he never presented himself for a shot.

Sunday I didn't hunt.

I saw a total of 8 coyotes, 1 bobcat, and 1 grey fox. Missed 2 of the coyotes AND the bobcat...twice, and my assigned egg. It was a good weekend but would have been better if I could shoot.
Besides the whiskey, we'll have a little respect.

I hunted with Jimanaz, Bob C. and G B on Friday and shared in a couple of coyote sightings, shots at bobcat and nailed one fox. We had javelina close enough to hit with rocks in one canyon. On Saturday linked up with Rustydog and shared most of our spots we tried with javelina hunters. He did a great job calling, but we didn't have any sightings. I went out Sunday to try a canyon for cats, but did not notice any responses. I think the javelina hunt had a great deal to do with the PM guys' success. But, I met a lot of good guys, kicked off some friendships I hope to grow over time and consider the event a resounding success. As my first PM gathering, I would recommend coming to Globe to anyone.

I would like to add to the glowing comments on the experience I had during the Globe Hunt.

Due to some unusual circumstance, my partner for the hunt had to hunt with some other people. This left me "high and dry" without a ride on Friday and Saturday. Here is where the spirit of friendship really pays off. I hooked up with Crapshoot and Yellowhammer on Friday, and spent a very enjoyable day with these two highly experienced and successful hunters. While we were a bit "light" in the production department, we did share a lots laughs and had a wonderful day (I only hope I didn't hold them back too much. (I'm almost double their combined ages!! Lol!) Thanks guys!

On Saturday, luck struck again and I hooked up with CruiseAZ and had another memorable day. Today however, we had a good excuse for our lack of game. The javelina hunters, both tribe member and non-members, were everywhere we went. This hurt our efforts, but not our enthusiasm. Thanks Rich, hope to hunt with you again soon!

Called and killed one on Thursday, first stand. Didn't see diddly after that.

With Jason on Friday, had four that came in to one stand--after 35 minutes. Sight of the truck didn't bother them, but they took off to the next zip code once the lead started flying.

Saturday, with Jason, had one that showed up less than 200 yards south of us. Didn't show himself but he barked and howled at us. Didn't see anything else but saw a whole lotta cat and dog tracks.

Now that I've had a little time to recover !, My dr. had changed my blood pressure meds and told me the increased altitude "might" have an effect (understatement) , I thought I would enter a few comments of my own...

As a relative "newbie", it was pleasantly interesting to be able to put faces with many of the names I've seen on a regular basis on the forum and to witness the comradarie between those that have been involved for a number of years.

While the "hunt" didn't turn out to be as productive as I had hoped, I'm a "flatlander" (I'm not used to climbing hills and especially muddy ones ), so I didn't get to be as active as I would have liked. It was great to meet everyone, now if I can just remember which face goes with which name

I was amazed at the locale and some of the stories from previous experiences from the experts. I thought the staff of PM and the other volunteers did a wonderful job of putting on the event and would like to thank all of the presenters for their efforts. I learned a lot, just listening. I think they all deserve a huge round of applause.

The first day I was not sure where to hunt so just cruised down the main highway 60 headed east until I saw terrain that looked good which was at Yellow jacket trail I turned north and hunted in about a 5 mile loop a called up 3 mule deer and 1 javelina. That afternoon I finally called up 1 coyote at dusk and he got in and out so fast that I did not get him to stop until he was 200yds out and I shot over him.
The next morning I went to the same area except on the south side of the road next to the river and spotted two coyotes as I was setting up but one had seen me so we got into a howling contest which I lost and they moved off. Well I hunted once again until about 1 hour before dusk with no luck. Then I called up a coyote to 25 yds and got him and hurried to another area about 1 mile away and called a bobcat to 30 yds and got him right at dark.I figured out that getting out and just walking from stand to stand was not productive because you could not cover enough area unless the wind was really howling and your setups could be close together.I mostly used the Foxpro playing either Lightning Jack or Dying Jack.
I changed tactics the next day and cruised the backroads looking for likely spots. I would stop and call at every third or so spot thinking i could backtrack and hit the other spots. This sure was easier on the legs and even though I got in more setups I did only slightly better. I called up two coyotes and one more bobcat but only got one coyote.I had a great time and it was neat putting faces with names and next year if I can get back I look forward to getting out and sharing some actual hunting time with some folks.
