Just got back from unit 30 in New Mexico, saw alot of hunters and does. all in all it was an awesome hunt with 75% success rate. There was four in our group with FAD tags and we killed 3 mule deer. Two fork horns and a very nice 10 point. Extreme hunting in that unit from mountains, cliffs, foothills, rolling hills, sand hills, and prairies, we hunted all of them and had a blast. This was the first real mule deer hunt for three of us that shot deer so they are all trophies in our book. My buddies father, a seasoned mule deer hunter, was just as happy to see us kill deer as anything. We could not get him a shot, but the ones he got close to were huge. Our hunt was 8th-12th how did everyone else do?

Thanks Bird, I know you hunt coyote alot out there, we had a huge grey and red one call out about 50 yards away from where we were sitting one night. Then it walked right up to me at about 20 yards in the open and stared us up and down. Thought about shooting it but wasnt too sure about having the right license for that. Do you have to get a small game or varmint license for that type of hunting?

Coyotes are a NON-game animal in NM. you can shoot them any time no permits required.

Hunted unit 2B from November 8-12. Saw a lot of bucks, I missed a nice one opening morning. We were headed up to an area to glass and he was standing in the middle of the road!!!!!!! My brother shot a nice tasting forkey though. I dont think the bigger deer have moved in from Colorado yet. Most of the deer we saw hanging were younger deer. Time to start thinking about next year
