2010 NM Pheasant

Well... seems like 2010 was year of the skunk for me. No pheasants were harvested on this trip. Hopefully next year it'll get better for me. I did have a great time and hope to come back soon. Below you'll find pictures of the hunt, the Guadalupe Mountains and a closeup of the massive rock face of El Capitan (eighth-highest peak in Texas) and the Guadalupe Peak (highest point in Texas, with an elevation of 8751 ft) at the Guadalupe Mountains National Park.

Once again, I hate to hear

Once again, I hate to hear you didn't have any success on your trip. But you know what they say, a bad day of hunting is better than the best day at work. Maybe next time out you'll have a better trip.

I'm glad you included the pics and facts about the peaks in Texas. I never knew Texas had any peaks that high. I thought the NC mountains would have been higher than any peaks in Texas. I guess I was wrong.

Thanks for posting! Good luck next time! Thumbs up

Hey PR, sorry you didn't get

Hey PR, sorry you didn't get into any birds, but at least you got out there.  I have not been able to get out for birds at all this year.

I have one more deer hunt, then I will probably hang up the bow until turkey season in the spring.
