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.
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted. This is not novel information. Any hunter who has consistent success in the field knows this. I have tried a couple different techniques for keeping track of the wind. Here are a couple.
The most simple and obvious is to just stay cognizant of it. It is amazing how slight of a breeze you can sense if you just pay...
