NM 44/45 Mule Deer

I drew a Mule Deer tag for Unit 44/45 this year. I have never hunted there and was wondering if anyone had any tips. Not wanting your private honey-hole location, just any advise for first timers. Drove around close to Las Vegas and decided that I would scout elsewhere in a couple of weeks. From looking at the maps and Google Earth, I am interested in the area West of San Pablo. Any info would be appreciated.

NM 44/45 Mule Deer

Rafterh:
Talked with a guy that works for me and grew up in Penasco NM, has hunted 44/45 most of his life to include last year. His suggestion for an area to look was the Tres Rotis area off SR 518. To the south of this area, no Monsters but a lot of solid bucks. If you have question please ask.

I heard the same,quality animals but not monsters. I was looking to do same, and try for elk also if possible(dream hunt), wound up w/ Bull tag.Poor me. I here a lot of locals hit Las Vegas area hard 'cause of access. I'll be keeping an eye out for bucks for next years draw and will let you know what I find. Hank4elk& muleys

NM 44/45 Mule Deer

Thanks for your help. I will do some scouting around there. Another are I an going to look at is around North San Ysidro.

Being from Texas, hunting the mountains is new to me and my brother (he also drew the same tag), but we are pumped.
