Unit 15 for Archery Antelope info For NM

I have Hunted Elk in Unit 15, but not Antelople.  This Year i got a antelope archery tag and was wondering if anyone has hunted or knows of anyone hunting this unit.  I have heard this is a true trophy unit for Antelople.

I live just north of 15, but

I live just north of 15, but never hunted it. But I've seen some great antelope bucks in there. Check the BLM lands south of hwy 60 near Red Hill. Biggest problem is the big ranches and the outfitters that control access or think they own it all. I'll ask my outfitter/guide buddy that is a honest guy. I'll pm you with what I find out. Good Luck,someday maybe I'll get a chance at a speedgoat in NM.

Unit 15 Antelope Hunt

North of Quemado on the right side of the highway is a good place to start. I had seen some monsters there. Also out in the flats east of Luna. Be aware of private property. Good luck.

North of Hwy 60 and Quemado

North of Hwy 60 and Quemado is unit 12, 15 is south. The Luna Rd. south of Red Hill has lots of BLM and goes into the Apache forest. But I saw a big BC buck 2 days in a row on FS land near Aragon last weekend. 15 is a big unit. Good Luck!

Sorry about that, I was not

Sorry about that, I was not sure where the boundaries were but I know those bucks are back and forth right in that area!
