Setting out controls for the Early-O at Greasewood Park. Normally I like to put out most of the controls the day before but I was a bit worried about leaving stuff out (especially our brand new BSF-9 units) at this park overnight. The problem with leaving it all for the morning is that first starts were 6:30am. That doesn't leave me that much daylight, and the family logistics were a bit tough with only one car. Jeff Brucker came to the rescue, picking me up at 4:45 and putting out the northern half of the controls. We were done at about 6:15, calmly ready for the first arrivals.
Saw 1 coyote, 1 bobcat (!), 1 jackrabbit, and innumerable bunnies and quails. The saguaros are blooming. Amazing that they do that even with how ridiculously extra dry it's been.
We had two offerings today, a score-o and a dogbones score-o using the same controls. Neither were particularly difficult but the dogbones offered something a little different for people looking for a bit more challenge. Livelox
