Re: New Mexico GC Considers Hunting Rule Changes June 3rd
Thanks for the link!!! I totally agree on the early grouse hunting. I had an elk bow tag last year in Unit 45 and couldn't believe there were shotgun hunter's out there. I was in camp and they drove up asking about the area. Granted, I was getting ready to head on out anyways. I had already been there 4 nights. And just ran into a search/rescue team, driving the service road, in the recovery mode for a hunter that went missing the weekend before I got there. I knew he was missing before I left but what were the odds of him being in the same area I was headed. Due to the nightly cold and daily hail they had already called off the search and rescue by the time I got there. Wouldn't you know it I camped 1/4 mile from where he went missing, was camped. But having put in for Unit 45 again this year for bow and muzzleloader, this is good news.
All of us, at one time or another have gone on a hunting trip and had what we call “Blue Bird” weather. Warm evenings and almost hot days. We hunt in our t-shirts and enjoy the sunshine. We are way up in the mountains and have a whole week to hunt. How could it get any better?
That is, until we score on that big buck or bull. We work to get it out of the field and skinned as quickly as possible to cool it down. But try as we might, we just can’t get...
