Default Headed to NM for Mule Deer!

Myself and Honk441 started our trip to NM this AM. We will be hunting a private ranch near Folsom. Started off with a good rain storm in Stephenville. We are about 60 miles from Lubbock and itís 47 degrees! Monday shows a low of 9 degrees and a high of 22. Iíll try to update If service allows

Appears to be about a sixty percent chance of snow here in the Albuquerque area Monday. Probably higher in your hunt area.

Have fun.

We hunt that area every year for pronghorn and elk. We stay in Folsom and hunt sierra grande mountain.

Good luck!

Well if I wanted to kill elk, whitetail, Turkey or coyotes I could have. Saw 9 bulls but no mule deer. Wind was blowing about 25mph this morning but it has laid now. We will see what happens this evening.

Rough morning, 9 degrees and blowing snow with about 4 inches on the ground. Not much moving but a few elk and one doe. Did get to see a nice 6x6. We will see what this evening brings.

The ranch is 36k acres owned by a friend. We hunted with the ranch manager and a hand. Service was bad the past few days but we are headed back to Texas. We saw 2 bucks first thing yesterday and about 10 min after spotting them, wind started blowing 30mph with heavy snow leaving visibility to about 50 yards. I saw a 160 class 4x4 yesterday evening but it was On the neighbors. Needless to say we are coming home empty handed as far as deer go but we had a great time, made some new friends and will definitely be going back next year!
