I saw a 30" + 6X6 buck in

Thanks for the info JSmitty, I'll be headed that way next month and should have 2 days to hit the hills in the early morning.

Unit 30

Drew out for Unit 30 archery season.  I have been going to that unit off and on for the past 13 years.  If there is anything I can help you out with just PM me.  Never been during the rifle season, so I don't know what the deer patterns are like with the extra people out there, but I am familiar with a lot of the terrain.  The other three in my group will liklely be going for a few days in September for the early season, maybe I'll have a little more info. then as well.

Unit 30

Thanks DWV015, talking to a few hunters on this forum and around Albuquerque, most say stalk the canyons around Last Chance Canyon and west of Sitting Bull Falls.

6c

Both kids drew 6C Bull tags, they've never drawn a tag for elk since we've been putting them in for hunts.

First time poster here...

First time poster here... I've been stationed here in NM almost 5 years and just got my best draw yet... oryx on Stallion, muzzleloader antelope on MacGregor, first rifle deer hunt in unit 30, and barbary on MacGregor.  Last year, all I got was barbary, which I managed a successful hunt up in the unitized Felix River area... unfortunately I got nervous and was tricked by body size, shooting a nice ewe instead of the 25" ram.

I am way open to suggestions on hunting unit 30... I really enjoy hiking so I don't mind getting a ways away from the roads.
