Well, since Ghostingrey posted a thread on it I figured I would too. Although I don't have a trophey to show off
Brian & I went on a cow elk hunt up north, purchased a couple of landownder tags (won't ever do that again!) and it was a bust. Hunted out asses off climbing mountains all day every day and only saw 4 elk. 1 bull and 3 cows and never had an opportunity for a shot.
H O W E V E R,
we did see 42 deer. Most I've ever seen in one area in all of New Mexico. Mostly doe, but saw 10 bucks, 8 were legal and 6 of these were "Wall Hangers" where the rack extends beyond the ears. Just couldn't belive our damn luck! Put in for a Elk Hunt and see all the deer. I can see why that area only allows for 15 tags, but you can bet your sweet ass I'll be putting in for the area next year.
Going out Sunday to hit the river and scatter a bit of steel shot across the water. I'm hoping some ducks fly through my pattern while my gun is going off.
