Got another DANGEROUS GAME tag in AZ!!!

Sounds exciting right. The only problem is I'm the prey in this dangerous game. I drew another tag right on the border of Mexico. Been down this road many times before. These tags are the only tags I can draw consistently anymore. The hunting is good if you can avoid the massive war going on around you. I'm excited but as always a little nervous too!

Its not a massive war as you described it but you do have to be careful. Are you hunting around Douglas, Sierra Vista or Nogales? Its more dangerous on the Mexican side for sure (closer to a war). I just wouldn't camp out there at night time. I would stay in a hotel and then move out from there. Your most dangerous time is going to be night time because that is when the guys that will harm you are actively moving. In the day time you should be looking all over anyway since you are hunting.

I've both seen and heard gun battles between border patrol and uda's. Black hawk helicopters, snipers, automatic gun fire, etc. Happens all the time yet main stream media doesn't talk about it. A few years back they shut down the entire buenos aires wilderness in AZ which is a huge chunk of real estate. They were flying C-130
Gunships over the area firing down into the desert with every pass while automatic gunfire was being returned from the desert floor. They hauled them out of there by the busloads.
In my opinion that's a war. I don't want to turn this into a political debate just sharing my experiences. I am planning on backpacking in on this hunt because it is the only practical way to hunt it. The last deer I killed in there I hiked 9 miles the day I killed my buck and another 7 miles the next day to recover him. Adding an hour a day of driving to and from a hotel room is just not practical. I will also most likely be solo on this hunt. Like I said it's a dangerous game. I really love hunting!!!
