Gearing up for Barbary Sheep in New Mexico

Time is ticking closer for my hunt for Barbary sheep in New Mexico area 30. I have been lucky enough to draw for the 2012 year in unit 29/30 for these critters. Any folks wanting to chime in on these areas...? Good ,bad or ugly...Sleeping bags on the ground is the current plan... Any folks have knowledge of the temps and wind over there in the beginning of February?

I have the same hunt. A friend of mine went last year and said it was cold. Low teens at night. Some snow.

Congrats on having the same hunt...Well I guess we can plan for the coldness and hope it will not be too bad egh..? I will handle the wind, which I am sure there will be as long as it will be in our favor .

None anywhere close to my knowledge...but I have not even looked.
I plan to stay with "Hunt Along Inn" that's were ever it is parked that evening. I understand all the fresh air one can afford is offered there too...

Be ready for anything! Gettin stranded back off in some of those parts can be pretty awful! Bring plenty of water can be a scorcher during the day and freez all your water at night.

Game manager for the unit told me to bring everything you will need, including fuel, because there are no services close by.
