Howdy! I was curious if any of you have hunted the Sandia's (Unit 8) for turkey in the last few years, and how you felt the quality of the hunt was? My daughter drew one of the turkey tags in the Sandia's, and I'm looking forward to hunting them a little close to home. Just curious about people's past experiences. No locations needed, just a sense for if it's a decent hunt or not. Thanks!

There’s a bunch up there pretty much anywhere you go. Anywhere you can pull over and call you will likely get a response up there if wind provides. They are pressured so little they respond a lot but are still can be tuff to bring all the way in for bow shot. I can’t seam to draw this dang hunt! I think they should give out more tags especially archery only.

In fact I wish they would make first two weeks of April archery.

Cool! Thanks for the input! I agree that we should have an earlier archery season as well. Good luck in the draw!

I feel the same way about the deer hunts . Tag wise anyway.
