You got to be joking. Do you have mule deer, desert bighorn sheep, rocky mountain bighorn sheep, bison, three species of quail, whitewing dove just to mention a few different game species. I can understand a love for your home state but your reasoning for not wanting to leave just doesn't jell, at least not for me.
we only moved out there back in the late 80's looking for work. didnt like living in the city. too many people. did like the lottery system used there then. i did like working in the sportsman's store in Mesa back then. it was called The Sportsmen's located on southern and stapley. i thing it has since closed.
