The OP might. I counted them once but I lost interest when I saw 4 guys armed with automatic rifles and backpacks full of whackyweed meandering through the desert near Why.

Yes, I did really.

People smuggling drugs up from Mexico happens, every day.

I really did see those 4 men.

I have also seen plenty more in other areas in southern Arizona.

One time, down near the Beunos Aires Refuge, I had spotted in my binoculars a group of people smuggling. 4 guys were carrying a sled or tray of some sort, over their heads. On it were as many trashbags as could fit. One guy was running back and forth giving them water and pouring it on them to keep them cool. There were 4 armed men 2 in front and 2 in back as well.

Edit: Get on Tanque Verde road, and head east. Eventually it will turn into Redington Pass, keep going until it turns into a dirt road. Follow it until you get to the first cattle guard. There you will see a sign identical to this one:

Thats 15 minutes outside of Tucson city limits.

Note that this picture is not the one on Redington Road, its just the same sign.

I was actually deer hunting. I initially spotted them with the scope of a rifle.
