With this crazy spring weather about to end, many local boaters and anglers will be once again taking to the water of our local lakes on the Colorado River.
The last couple of weeks I have been writing about some very serious things Arizona sportsmen are going to be facing in the next few months.
As I am sure you are aware, one of the hottest topics for many Arizona sportsmen is the proposal by the Arizona Game and Fish Commission to prohibit organized coyote calling contests.
What we didn’t expect was when literally thousands of 3 to 5 inch threadfin showed up and started circling the boat.
The first step for Martzen was to get some of her friends to agree to help her with the event, which does take a lot of planning.
When I got the first of several calls from friends, some of whom are members of the Mohave Sportsman Club, I couldn’t believe what they were saying.
Many years ago, when I was president of the Mohave Sportsman Club, I organized and put in place a program in concert with the Arizona Game and Fish Department and the Navajo Nation that recognized that we as sportsmen were only privileged to hunt on those lands.
The Big Boquillas Ranch encompasses just over 729,532 acres of land. It includes about 491,432 acres of deeded private land, which is owned by the Navajo Nation. The ranch also has 238,100 acres of state trust lands within its borders. It is the largest ranch in Arizona.
One of the longest running overnight striper tournaments in Mohave County is in danger of not happening unless someone steps up to take it over.

You knew it had to end. The father-son team of Ray and Donnie Scroggins didn’t win the Kingman Bass Club’s fourth tournament of the year.
If what I’ve heard is correct, the Arizona Game and Fish Commission will open for comment Friday a proposed rule that will all but end coyote calling contests where entry fees are charged and prizes, whether money or other items, are given away.
Last weekend, 27 men and women, who ranged in ages 17 to 67, came to the Mohave Sportsman Club’s 7 Mile Hill Range. Their purpose was to take an advanced class in hunter education that would result in them obtaining a permanent bonus point that will assist them in drawing big game tags in the future.
After winning the KBC’s first two tournaments of the year, the father-son team participated in the club’s third tournament of the year, a two-day event at Alamo Lake.

This story is about Kingman residents Sara Alearin, who while hunting with her uncle, local sportsman Steve Nueberger, bagged her first javelina while on a hunt in game management Unit 18B.
Having just spent the past two weekends on the Handgun, Archery, Muzzleloader (HAM) hunts in Game Management Unit 18B, I am really concerned by the lack of javelina herds seen.
Hunting javelina for the first time can be a daunting task. Matter-of-fact, many new javelina hunters will go on average about four hunts before they take their first collared peccary.
The last of the spring 2019 javelina seasons is set to open Friday, but with the continued unsettled weather, hunt success this year may not be as high as in past years in units favored by local sportsmen.

One of the questions I’m often asked as a Chief Hunter Education instructor is, “How valuable are bonus points when it comes to helping draw a tag?”
Every day, somewhere in America, there are anti-hunting groups who are working to take away our rights to own firearms or our privileges hunt.
The first tournament on the Kingman Bass Club’s tournament trail was held last weekend at Cattail Cove on Lake Havasu, and for most of the nine teams that competed, they found bass fishing tough.
