    Last trip we had some very brazen midnight visitors. It is wise to pick up your trash in the evening, rather than in the morning.

    But hey, when it is dark and you are fishing, you get kind of lazy. :embarassed:

    Just wondering with those skunks running around did you have any luck or was it just the skunks that had all the luck.

    :smile2: I know one at Bartlett a little too personally. I'm glad i sleep in my boat now and not the ground anymore. Between the skunks and scorpions it can get real interesting sleeping on the ground. How was the fishin?

    I don't know much about scorpions, but i know i have seen two different kinds at Bartlett. Some are the orange/tan ones and some are kinda clear with a green tinge to them in the light. Really hard to see unless they are moving. They shouldn't bother you in a tent. I was just throwing a sleeping bag on the rocks and sleeping in the rocks. Prolly not the best idea, but have done it all over Arizona countless times and haven't been stung yet. Just keep your eye open. When the sun comes up they hide under the nearest object so check all you gear real good before loading it up. I have found serveral under my water jug, sleeping bag, lunch and tackle boxes.

    We were at Bartlett. A couple of smaller cats and several carp. Nothing big and no flatties. The water level dropped quite a bit over last weekend.

    We shall try again this weekend and see what happens.

    I was at bartlett one night and woke up to two of them things trying to drag my bag of chips and my camera case off. One of them was about 3 feet from my face. Thank God it was one of the few times I didnt take my dog. It would have been a stinky ride home.

    I really like the pictures. I see shunks every so often and I always like seeing them because they are such a neat critter. Just never spook one and you're ok.

    When theres nobody around I usually give those cute little camp marauders the shotgun. Just make sure its a headshot for instant kill or you'll be moving to another camp in the middle of the night.
