Should that read: leaving Florida for the mountains soon?

The only mountain I can think of in Florida, they do not allow hunting at all. While Disney does all they can to please people and make dreams come true. Hunting. Hunting during park hours is not one. Now, you could go all East Texas on them. Sneak in at night. But I would imagine the security is tight. Good Luck!!! Hope you all the success

Best of luck to the hunter and the hunting party. Make sure and take enough water, tea, lemonade and beer. That is some dry and dusty environment.

Due south of Deming all the way down to the border is a town called Columbus. There isn’t much out there whether you go east or west of Columbus. I had the pleasure to work the area east and west of Columbus, between there and Santa Teresa for a short time last year before I retired. That is some wild and desolate country. There is a lot of craziness going on down there on the border.

Yes Sir. I didn’t have much time to look around as we where just driving through but we made a pit stop. That town had a feel like an old western movie type feel to it….

I saw a sign that stated the Pancho Villa raid and history. Have you been/visited that area?? I would love to go back at some point and visit the area.

I grew up in that country. Lived in Playas/Hachita area. We went to Columbus/Palomas from time to time. I would imagine that it has changed alot as I was in the area in the 70's.

I sat here at base, watching these animals walk walls, defy gravity, run, chase each other, materialize out of no where, then disappear like they walked thru a wall...not even spiderman could follow these animals.

Way cool. Freaking expensive tag but would be awesome. I have a buddy who killed one up there with a bow. I know the number of successful bow hunters there is way low. Hope y’all add a number to that total! Good luck!
