    Default As out of state hunting questions

    I am a Cali hunter.
    I have a lot of family in AZ.
    They are asking me to come out and hunt varmints.
    I looked at the the AZ fish and hunting state web site.
    It looks like they have a $20 a day license for varmint hunting for out. Of state hunters.
    Sounds like a good deal to me.
    The family is all around Phoenix area.
    Need some advice on varmint hunting in this area.
    Any and all comments are welcome.
    How about varmint night hunting.
    Do you guys use lights or what do you use.

    I hunt there regularly, buy an annual license, do spot and stalk for ducks on water sources, always carry a lion tag and hunt the ever elusive javelina. Drew an alk tag this year as a NR w/ only 2pts for the Kaibab. AZ rocks! Big fat bobbies like this there too. Haven't hunted much at night there.

    Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

    The U.S. city with the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, Washington, D.C., has the highest murder rate at 24 per 100,000. The state with the most unrestrictive gun regulations, Vermont, has the lowest murder rate at 0.48 per 100,000.

    Up to you on the license. If you will use it several times then its way more cost effective to buy the annual license.

    Other than that, lots of yotes, fox and cats to call in. They get hammered pretty good so they are very call savvy in most spots within an hours drive of the bigger cities from my experience.

    I make 1 trip a year there for about 5 or 6 days and I will hunt for 2 days, so I am thinking the daily might be the best way to go.
    I will be hunting out of the Suprise area (suberb of Phoenix)and willing to travel up to 2 hours each way.
    Any suggestions for coyotes, squirrels or other varmint shooting?

    Not really. I probably spend about 25-30 days per year hunting (OTC deer) mixed in with a little guiding and some predator calling, but all well north of the area that you are describing. Its not rocket science. Just got out and find some contour with some varied terrain....ie, valleys, canyons, thick desert flats and give it a rip! Make sure to get your wind and sun right too! Call for 10-12 minutes and be STILL!! If nothing comes, go to your next stand! Make it fun!!

    For $20 why not give it a shot. If you like it, then buy a full lic next season and put in for different species to build points. I saw a lot of coyotes out there when deer hunting.
