i hunted south of tucson. I took a nice bow buck once within 1/4 mile of the mex border. I have seen lots of 175+ bucks down there, but the sparse cover is a bitch to stalk within bow range. I often seen the mexicans sneaking across the border down there too, pretty intersting place. The gila mosters are so cool, they have skin like the small tight beadwork of a womans purse. They are a poison lizard but dont move very fast, so to mess with them was pretty safe. I remeber the time i brought home this pretty ornery snake to show my dad and he looked it up in the reptile book to find out it was a copperhead!!!! He took it away and let it go.
