I got a bow tag for Antelope in Unit 30 and was wondering if anyone know of a good place to start. i have been down in Unit 30 before, but on a deer hunt and didn't pay much to antelope and where they where.
yes i am in New Mexico. I have hunted this unit for Deer a few years back but i never paid attenion to the flats for antelope. i know they are there in the unit 30, but looking for help on where to go in the unit. i don't have time to scout. i leave almost 300 miles away in northern New Mexico and my busy work load won't let me get away tell the day before my hunt starts..
As Critter said find you a good water hole . Iv seen some real nice antelope around Burrow hill and around the Marathon plant and back on in to box canyon are. A buddy of my e and 2 other friends of his killed 3 nice ones 2 years ago around that area . Good luck
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
