Interested in seeing some of eastern Arizona this summer? I'm hoping to put together a trip or two out into this area for those looking to see something new.

Re: Bighorns being released into the Catalinas

@Jim_HGame Dept said they pulled these bighorns from the area around Canyon Lake. If you watch the video closely, you or someone else may be able to make out more exactly where they were.
