Hello everyone. I need your help please. Does anyone have experience in unit 24? It will be my boys (11 yrs) and I first time in NM for mule deer. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Tips or good area's for a successful hunt? Thank you!
This info was given to me a while back from another forum member. Hope it helps.
"If you like the area throughout the Mimbres Valley, you can try the Royal John Mine Rd off of St. Rd 61. Its private for a few miles but right after you enter the forest there are some good meadows. Further north on HWY 35 you can try Mcknight Canyon Rd and Powderhorn and all of the forest roads around Lake Roberts. Also try Little Walnut Picnic area further west through Silver City. The deer are used to people and there are a lot of them. Its close to town also."
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
