I hope to find one soon also!
Most of the state is open year 'round over the counter for Barbary sheep.
Makes a nice spring hunt.

Re: New Mexico Barbary sheep

What do the tags cost? What are the success rates?

Coues man,

Have you hunted them in the Lincoln National forest down where the Guadalupe Mts. are ?

I was told by the N.M. game and fish there are some really good rams there in the more rugged areas . You guys down there in New Mexico have some really good hunting opportunities !

Did you get Troy Floyds ( the ranch where Scott and I hunted ) phone number from the Roswell G&F ?

Re: New Mexico Barbary sheep

Screech ,

The rifle specs are as follows :

Builder - Chris matthews -Longshot
Rifles
Broughton 5c bbl. 28"
11 twist
Remy accurized action
Jewell trigger 14 oz.
McMillan A5 std l.o.p.
Badger base and rings
Leupold mk 4 8.5x25x50
Of course it is pillar and skim bedded . This was my first custom rifle and I doubt I will ever top it . It has been a solid performer from the beginning . Load developement found many very accurate loads with different bullets and powders.
