We run hunts there, to say it's rugged is a under statement, very tough hunting terrain and tough animals to stalk. We use to run these hunts from a motel stays now we set up camp as it takes quite a bit to get up and down those mountains daily as it's not a great area for horseback.
Had a friend some years back that lived in Demming so he thought he would get an off mountain tag. He never got to see one and he had all the ranchers around call when they saw any off mtn but by the time he got there couldnt find em.
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....
