    Looks like we might have gotten drawn for a new mexico mulie hunt this fall. Results not posted yet, but got the congrats email. we put in for a limited draw area, muzzleloader only, no in lines, no scopes, no pellets, no sabots:eek: Gonna have to break out the ol hawkin and buffalo bullets again. still gonna be hot in southern NM that time of year, will probably be hunting water holes. there are some fires in the area right now so there might be some good greening up on some edges by then.

    Maybe you will see one of them Orynx that they have in Southern New Mexico, last time I checked, they were out of control because they don't have a natural predator to keep them in check. Them suckers are just as big as a horse.

    Meador,

    yea, he has the field office and the range cons keeping an eye on the deer in that unit already:D

    riverboss,
    just one. My brother lives/works out there and checked out all the draw odds on the hunts. we picked the three with the best odds (the limited entry old school ML areas were the least applied for) and got lucky.

    Colorado Hunter,

    One of the field biologist in my brothers office got drawn for one and killed the 11th biggest Orynx currently on the books.

    Good for you Pentail! That's awesome. I hope you go out there and smoke an absolute monster mulie! Sounds like a good time.

    I've been tryin' to get drawn in NM for an elk tag for the last couple of years, and next year I'm just suckin' it up and I think we're gonna pay for a landowner's tag and head on out.

    talked to my brother last night. Looks like my sister in law got drawn for a cow elk rifle and mule deer buck rifle as well. Throw in coming back to KY for deer rifle season and they are gonna have a busy Oct./Nov.

    We did not draw NM or CO. We did draw Montana. Waiting on the special draw to see if we drew Bull tags for our area.

    What unit are you hunting? We have hunted 16, and 37 for deer, and also 52. My buddy killed a nice 3X3 in 37. Slim pickings in 16, and only small bucks in 52 ( which is kind of a migratory hunt). We put in for 2B and 5, and were unsuccessful. Good luck to you.
