I pulled this from somewhere else dated 2009. A few guys on the longrangehunter forum have hunted there as well. Sounds like a tough hunt.
"ive hunted unit 30 for sheep pretty much every year, shoot i live close enough to see the mountains from my house, but didnt put in for the draw this year. i know when tags were over the counter unit 30 was full of hunters and that made hunting hard. that does mean u cant find sheep ive seen sheep 7 out of 8 years i hunted killed 2 ewes and a 33 ''ram they are there,just really scatted. First thing u should do is get a game unit map for unit 30 from the game and fish department before u scout most of 30 is public land. a few places i know hold sheep is on the rim, little dog canyon, look out, and soilder spings look for these on the unit map and good luck"
Just curious if you saw anything or were lucky enough to get one. I've been wanting to do that hunt for years. I did hunt the Guadalupes for Babary and the surrounding area but never saw one. Lot's of little mule deer though.
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
