Default I got drawn for Devils River SNA Del Norte?

I was lucky enough to draw the unlimited exotic with the long gun!! Any advice would greatly be appreciated. I looked at some of the old threads already. My dates are Jan 24-27. TIA

It's def a fun hunt. Take plenty of ammo, at least a bipod or a shooting tripod. Good hiking boots and glass.

Yep kill everyone you see, I’m not gonna say it can’t be done but out there a 26-29” ram is a pretty good ram. There is bigger in certain parts of the property but Don’t pass up a good ram especially if you have glassed good and sure he is the biggest in the group.
I killed the biggest during our hunt that was brought in I believe and he was about 27”, some bigger were seen and shot at but not recovered. Saw pics and video of them and they were in the 30-31” range.
