I have never hunted that far north on the River. Rice Quaker mentioned it on the previous post what do you guys think about it for Upland Hunting ?

We use to hunt Dove and Quail quite frequently on the CRIT until they raised they got greedy and raised the License Fee. We've had some good dove shoots on their land but haven't hunted it for 3 years now. I think the license was $70 or 75 when we said no more.

Concur. If their intent was to limit hunters they succeeded. Me and a mob of friends used to go there all the time. Prices went up and we went away. Plenty of good hunting an hour or less from home so why go there? Didn't they also reduce the limit from the AZ 15 to the CA 10? That was the last straw for me.
But I will say that when I was down there regularly I had a Win. Mod. 42, one of several I've had over the years, that was a peach and I did some of the best shooting with it. Not so much anymore. :-) But great memories. A library full of 'em. I could fill a book nearly I think.
Then there was the time, now that I think more about the CRIT, when I noticed my dog laboring. Stopped immediately, threw her in the truck and flew to the nearest irrigation canal. Threw her in and she swam around for about 60-90 minutes cooling off. That really scared me into paying closer attention.
Oh, and they got some of the most ill-tempered rattlesnakes I've ever run across. Maybe they didn't like Californians coming into the state.

Just curious, does CRIT mean one set of hunting regulations or does each tribe have some rules of their own? Also, is CRIT separate from the Indian lands around Somerton?
DUE TO THE PRICE INCREASE ON AMMUNITION...
DO NOT EXPECT A WARNING SHOT !

The CRIT is (or was) one set of rules. The name implies more than one tribe, but IIRC, it functions as a unified government. Without a map, I can't answer the Somerton question. The CRIT website used to have hunting information on it, but I couldn't find any when i looked recently, though they still refer to hunting as a recreational opportunity.

Vic, I am planning on being buried with my M-42, cause you know there will be great hunting in heaven. Other than a giant leap of faith about getting there, the only things I am concerned about are ammo availability and where do I pick up my dogs?

Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it's still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators.

I've got a nice map of the CRIT and the southern boundary is well west of Quartzite and north of the 10 Fwy. I'd say definitely separate. Oh yeah, there are NO birds out there.

Do CRIT shoot times for dove end at noon like the rest of Arizona and does anyone have the phone number for their FG office? I checked the CRIT website and found nothing.
