You may want to think twice before being so specific on locations of wild things. I’m the one listening to the gunfire starting at 3 a.m. in a residential area after the mule deer photo was online. Calling the sheriff’s office has been a waste of time in the past so if we want to continue to enjoy these animals, we must protect them the best we can.
Editor’s note: According to the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s website, Apache Junction and Gold Canyon are in hunting area 26M, it has an archery-only deer hunt in late December and January and that hunters are required to have a valid hunting license and a non-permit archery deer tag.
