I can't help you with the area, but wanted to say congratulations on the draw. I've hunted in New Mexico once about 5 years ago for deer.
Good Luck.

Hello runner1,

I'm a bit out of my league here, but I think the Valle Vidal is part of the Rio Castillo Cooperative Livestock Association meaning you have to get access to certain portions through them. I have their phone number as: (505) 586-0542

Good luck on the hunt, sounds like a nice area there in northern New Mexico....

Hello,
I put in for that area but did not get drawn.My guide tells me that it was on fire, I am not sure which part?I dont know much about NM, this is my first time out, HOWEVER my guide has guided that area for years and he says there are some huge bulls in there.
Good luck and congratulations!
I hope your part wasn't on fire.

My dad hunted the via vidal two years ago. Once-IN-A-lifetime hunt. He was hunting with a muzzeloader. He was able to get off a couple of shots but he said that the country was so thick and rough, idealy a high powered rifle would be the weapon of choice. He did see many bulls that would have scored in the record books. The hunting conditions can really change in a days time so be carefull.
