I drew two good Mule Deer tags this year (NM 2A rifle and CO 75/751 3rd season) and was hoping someone could offer some advice on where to start looking. I have never been to either unit and won't have time to scout. The NM 2A hunt is a drop camp with San Juan River Outfitters; the CO 75/751 hunt is DIY. I have been focusing my research on the CO hunt and am looking at the area around Vallecito Lake, but am not sure if the bigger bucks will still be there or will have pushed to winter range near Bayfield. Any comments would be much appreciated.
Send me a pm when you get a chance, I have some info that may be of help to you. I have the same unit in nm and co except for archery.
