Sounds like you might have some additional influence with their decision making- I always take the path of least resistance when confronted by anyone armed, right or wrong.

Often, I'll suggest that I'll be out of their enforcement area by going forward rather than back.
Nice pic. We'll have to see how far we make it through AZ.

I've never had a problem with any BPAs from the AZ/NM line over towards Nogales. The ride over Montezuma Pass is outstanding.
Thanks for the pic, glad to see there are cattleguards along the barrier and not gates everywhere.

A U.S. Marine Corps permit is required for entry to the Barry M. Goldwater Range and is available from the Marine Corps Air Station, Yuma, Range Management Department (520-341-3402). El Camino del Diablo continues through the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge. A permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge, Ajo, Arizona) is required to travel on the refuge (520-387-6483).

Thanks for the info. Apparently there is some mating season going on for the North American 2-toed speckled gay pronghorn and it gets nervous if you drive through its area and won't mate to save its species even though they are over-populated. (Thanks Sierra Club).

We may have to modify our route...
