Really, no leg holds on public land in AZ!!! I can't believe that state has become wussified that bad. Too many so. Cali people and other "citidiots" moving in there. Unfortunately, AZ is mostly public land. There's some private irrigated farmland but almost all the shrub and grassland is various forms of public. Most of AZ is empty of people. Too bad a couple of big metro areas rule the roost :evil: !!

I've done a little trapping in Arizonia, and ya the no foothold thing is a bummer, or so I thought at first. Since I got into cage trapping I have enjoyed it more than footholds. Im not sure if it is the actual trapping or the design my own cages but it has been a blast and sometimes very frustrating. So if you like trapping fox or bobcats its a good place to be, just not for coyotes, unless you enjoy calling them.

The same thing happened in Colorado.

Well, there's a lot of pretty empty places in both AZ and CO where the granola munching, NPR listening, New Age and/or toy dog carrying, $500 purse or high heel shoe hipsters never will see. There may still be some steel getting planted in those more remote places by people who don't think the folks of Sedona or Boulder speak for them ;--) !!

I trap northern AZ, in the Prescott area.
I generally run cages during the week close to home, and have permission to trap private land near ash fork.
Im just getting my wheels under me trapping wise, and only have a couple traps, but its still a rush.
In time, i am sure my results will improve.
As for the reasons why we're limited on tackle for trapping, the bunny huggers and granola muncher hipsters migrated here after they buf'd up CA, and decided it wasnt buf'd up enough for them, so they helped us buf it up.
However, the repercussions are being felt....the azgfd just opened up some sections to night hunt predators.
Lately, the urban sightings of yotes and cats have been increasing substantially.
I have heard of 3 in the past month alone, and the way this winter is heading, its going to get worse.
Guess they dont realize the benefits we bring until their $2500 dog becomes yote scat.....

That is a good idea....sometimes you need to get a feel for how the TOP DOG feels so you don't waste time trying to work your way up to that point just to get shot down.
