I'm being told to expect the line going in to Mexico at P.N to be 10-12 hours starting Wednesday -Saturday as everyone will be required to fill covid form and temp. AS we all know historically the line from Mexico to the U S on the Sunday after Thanksgiving is horrible. Plan accordingly

A top 10 typical free range whitetail in the world..... Iíd assume the largest typical ever in Mexico. Not that, any of that matters to us. Just perspective.

A lot can be accomplished when the thought process is what can you give vs what can you take....

Wow what a buck, there was a buck killed on the Waggoner Ranch thursday that looks similar to this buck, from the picture I guessed him to be 190, once they get past 160 I am pretty much lost on scoring them.

Crossed this morning in EP at 8:30 and checked rifles in. Was in and out in under an hour. No wait at all. They were checking my temperatures of everyone once you got into PN at the new bridge but only a few cars in front of us.

Much smoother than anticipated.

Two years in a row now, my hunting buddy has killed a deer of a lifetime. Jake slid an arrow in this old LF stud Saturday morning. Grossed 176 1/8.... I think itís time for him to sit the bench and go on cull patrol for a while .... Super proud of him. Good times south of the rio!
