Show low area?

Postby MIAZquacker » Tue Sep 28, 2010 5:26 am

Does anyone know of any lakes in the show low area (within an hour or so) that are open to hunting? I was just looking around and came upon Fool's Hollow lake up in that area, does anyone know if its open to hunting? Open to basically anything within 2-3 hours of phoenix for a couple nights camping and some duck/predator hunting when I get back from my deployment in a few weeks. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

First thanks for your service! :thumbsup:

Fool's Hollow is a very cool lake with some resident geese at the very back of the lake. I was there last month and if you could get to the back of the lake it would be great. I have not checked with game and fish to see what the restrictions are but since there is camping everywhere I would guess you wold have to go to the back.

Check the game & fish website there are a lot of places to go and they list them out pretty well. Jacques Marsh or Pintail would be easiest for you but you need to see if they have flooded Jacques or it is pointless. Oh by the way the coyote calling oppty's up around Pintail or just past Jacques are very good.

When do you get back into town?

Thanks for the info, I get back sometime around the middle of Oct, they haven't given me a date yet... Definitely looking forward to getting back. If I can't find any ducks hopefully I can at least knock down a yote or 2.

When you are calling allow more time than usual and you may get a bobcat to show pin those areas. Good luck!

That would be awesome, have only ever seen one, and that wasn't while hunting. A Bobcat would be a nice little trophy in my book.

Still on my list as well! I have seen a few but not with a gun in my hand.

I did call in a mtn lion which is now a rug on my wall, probably the 2nd best trophy I have.

Best place for a lion is probably the San Carlos reservation where I shot mine. Not very big, around 90 lbs but I have lived here my entire life and only seen 3 of them. Saw a huge one last year on the res but it wasn't sticking around to see what we were going to do.

#1 has got to be the desert big horn I shot about 5 years ago. Amazing animals and an amazing and difficult hunt.
