Sheep near Socorro, NM: unit 13

Does anyone have any information on the Desert Bighorn herd in the Ladron Mountains near Soccorro, NM?  Things like the size of the herd, how big of ram are in the area, where they might hang out,  etc.

Thanks

they are a very small herd

they are a very small herd and would look at some other place in the state before that hunt area.  i saw the group 2 years ago and i didn't see anything that made me go damn i should hunt that.

Thanks

I decided not to put in for bighorns this year.  According to the G&F survey there are 3 class IV rams there but there is a lot of area, much of which is the sevellita wildlife refuge.
