The following information comes from a Arizona Game and Fish Department news release:

The Arizona Game and Fish Department Operation Game Thief program is offering a reward of up to$1,250 for information leading to an arrest in connection with the killing of a doe at approximately 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28, near Madera Canyon Road.

A poacher using a rifle killed the doe off U.S.Forest Service Road 488. He is described as a white male, age 30 to 35, 5 feet9 inches tall, weighing 165 pounds, with short, light brown hair and wearing camouflage.

He was accompanied by another white male, age late60s to early 70s, 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 175 pounds, with short salt-and-pepper graying hair. They may have been part of a hunting party camped in the area.

    The Forest Service said Tuesday’s high winds, coupled with dry vegetation and low relative humidity – is a formula that can create massive wildfires. Like the Aspen Fire on Mt Lemmon that burned 84,000 acres in 2003.

    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.
