It is a fun hunt. My son has taken 1, my wife has killed four, and I was lucky enough to use my .338 on a hunt a year or so back. Shots can be 80 yards or farther.

You really don't need an ATV if you quarter it up on the spot like an elk.

I'm amazed at how many people have hunted these critters.

As said before, if you think of any questions, PM one of us and we'll try to help.

I've been on a 3 off range and 1 on range hunts, and all were successful. Closest shot was 150 yds and farthest was 300 yds, but none of the hunters were prepared for LR shooting.
A 338 AM ough to put one on the ground, I can't wait to hear a report.

The only suggestion I have is cut the darn thing in half in front of the last rib as soon as its gutted. Moving half one around is much easier than a whole one. And half one can be set up for pictures later too!

Good Luck!

Here's some pics to get your fever rolling.

Oh, SWHunter,
If the NMDGF rule proposal goes through, to make off-range OTC, I'm gettin a big LR boomer.
Probably a 338 edge.
And I know exactly where I'm gonna be on opening morning with most of my friends and family. We'll hunt until everyone fills out!

Some nice looking animals.

My buddy who is guiding me says he has a goodun picked out. I am just looking forward to visiting NM again and hanging out with some great guys. Anything else is just a bonus. I will definately let yall know if I score. If I get skunked I will be scarce for a while
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.
