    Youth deer 58 private access

    My son and two nephews drew this after just passing hunter safety. It’s eswtd, and it’s each of their very first tag! We have an idea of where to hunt on public land. I’m looking for a landowner that would grant access as another option. I can pay a fee. I want them all to have a good first...

    Results Today!

    Anybody think they will hit today? Part of me thinks there is no reason they should take longer than this to run the draw and audits. The other part thinks there is maybe more to it than I understand and we have another week to wonder..... The weeks before are one of the best parts of the...

    Best in America

    I love living in New Mexico, but enough is enough. If you were looking for a better home where would you look? For me, the primary criteria would be a safe and conservative (I know that's redundant) place. I like our weather here and would not want to go any colder, or somewhere that is too...

    52

    I will be helping a friend with a November cow hunt in 52 this year. I've hunted 51, 53, and 55, but never 52. He just moved to NM from the south and this will be his first elk hunt. We will have his son and two of mine with us (ages 6, 9, and 10) so need to find elk that aren't too difficult...

    Bow Sight: Fixed or Dial?

    It's the time of year when I dream of all I will draw and what new equipment I want for the hunts. Of course, it's usually all red and I won't need new equipment. But, just in case... I've been looking at new bow sights and like the idea of an adjustable pin. I like the ability to practice...

    Antelope Ranch Map

    After striking out for a dozen years I finally drew an antelope tag. What's the best way to get an accurate map of the ranch I've been assigned to? Should I try to get one from NMGF or should I contact the ranch via the a plus listed number? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cory

    16D vs. Valles Caldera Archery

    Which is a better 2nd archery hunt. If anybody has experience with both I'm trying to decide between the two for a top notch bow hunt to apply for. I've already used up my VV OIL and am trying to find a bow hunt that can compare. Cory

    16B...How far in?

    My app group and/or our friends have done 16B for the last 6 years. It seems like 90% of who we see are camping on the road and not back in. It's definitely the minority of vehicles that are just left at a trailhead with the hunters camped back in. It seems like very few of these guys would...

    1ST ARCHERY SCHEDULE

    With the new season structure I've been wondering who will hunt when. I fall into the group, like almost all of us do I think, that won't be blocking out 15 days to be out hunting. With Labor Day falling when it does it seems like I lot of guys will be out from the 3rd or 4th until the 7th or...

    PRIVATE LAND BARBARY

    The draw was not good for me so I'm looking to do some OTC hunting. Has anybody ever done any private land Barbary hunting on an inexpensive ranch. I'm curious what's out there that costs less than Felix or Hondo but has a real chance at shooting a ram. Lets hear it. Cory

    2C Deer

    My Dad is one of the lucky 20 who drew a 2C Rifle Deer tag and we are trying to put together a plan. He lives just outside of the unit and worked in the oilfield in and around the unit for over a decade so he knows it well. He plans to spend plenty of time scouting. However, any tips and...

    Unit 61 Elk

    I plan to move from New Mexico to the Montrose area next year and have been studying the CO hunts. What makes 61 so much more desirable than all of the surrounding units? I have been up a couple of times in the last month and have seen a lot of elk all around the area and thought someone could...

    NR DIY'S: READ THIS!!!

    I think there are some misconceptions about the new quota system that has some NR's on here swearing off New Mexico. Let me first say that I disagree with the outfitter allocation tags and think the tags should be divided only between residents and nonresidents. If someone wants to hire an...
