    Yippie-Kay-Yay, Elk 16B, Mule deer, and Oryx off-range. All gun hunts. I'll be staying in NM for several weeks!

    I was finally able to pick up a mule deer tag in Northern NM and my first elk tag after years of trying to draw either of these in NM. Elk hunt is a late archery hunt and will be a tough hunt but at least I'll have the opportunity to hunt.

    At age 77, this is the first year my brother-in-law and I have failed to be drawn for any hunt! We applied for rifle hunts for deer, elk, oryx, barbary sheep and antelope.

    I applied for deer rifle. No luck. I’m sure all the Texas applicants drew though... (no offense Texas, my beef is with NM game and fish. Glad you guys drew)

    I’m in Texas. I didn’t draw anything. Kind of frustrating that some didn’t draw at all and others drew three or four tags, but that’s how the system works. Good luck to all who drew.

    Congrats to all that drew! I'm still on cloud 9 myself... I drew the Valles Caldera 1st archery.
    If anyone has hunted here or did a tagalong... I'd love to here some input... like depending on where they put me, do I hunt wallows, water, etc??? Any and ALL is so appreciated

    Yeah, same outfitter as two years ago, U-trail elite gila hunts. Using Rocking Zia outfitter for deer and oryx hunts. They both have been excellent for me.

    Tough hunt. Like hunting bighorn. Lots of spotting - and walking. Bring a good spotting scope among with your binos and take your time.
    Never hunted there though.
    Good Luck!!!
