Re: Gearing up for Barbary Sheep in New Mexico

Due to the mileage between the points of interest... I have chosen to bring the truck with better mpg and a can of fuel. Closest fuel services are in Carlsbad,Artesia,Pine Springs and Del City, Texas. I was told there is no cell phone coverage either.
The packing trip list is complete with some extras if needed.It about 3/4 packed and stacked already in the garage. Leaving the kitchen sink but taking the wash pan....

Driller 54, per chance do you have knowledge of the prevailing wind direction down there? What about when a front comes in, it can change from bad to worse pretty quick right?

Desertbull, How long are you going out for?

I'd be more worried about the mpg on the best pair of boots ya got cuz that's most likely what it's gonna take to get a good ram not sure on the winds though sorry

Boy is there truth to that...
I have plans to bring 2 pairs of quality broke in boots out there for the terrain and weather, just in case...Quality optics are going to play a big part in this hunt too. Along with the correct hunting garb to help with the fluctuation of temps with out carrying the dresser in the pack.


Hunting hard and smart,staying positive...good things will happen.

Re: Gearing up for Barbary Sheep in New Mexico

Evening, So our plan is to be out there for no more than 2 weeks.
I do think we can find and stir up at least 1 good one with in that time frame...

Driller54, I will PM you

Desertbull, Not sure of the actual date of our departure from there, but no later than the 12th we will be returning home. By then I might have some information for you if interested.
