    New Mexico GMU 37. The past three years were up north in the Carson & Santa Fe National Forests.

And the struggle that ensued while trying to capture a picture of one that wasn't a complete blur. But the most memorable moment was sitting on the side of a mountain from before sunrise until after sunset watching the way the world reacted to the movement of the sun. Turkeys, coyotes, squirrels, birds of all types. Unfortunately not one mule deer showed up but it was worth every minute.

    Ya, going about 35 miles south of Jackson. I have griz spray and a .357 magnum just in case!! I was told the odds of seeing a grizzly are slim but there is that chance. So we will see I guess. You ever have any closer encounters with any ivorytip?

    Sounds great. I used to live in Carlsbad when I was a kid and love it there. I always wanted to get a trip planned to go hunting there but time just moves way to fast!! Good luck Ammo!!

    Sounds like you have learned to love the journey not just the hunt and like most have said just double and triple check and I am sure you will enjoy the ride with or without a filled tag. Good luck and I hope you take a nice one!

    Powerman,
    I don't remember from your other thread if you are going alone or not ?
    I think you said you were. If you want, take a small, radio, a fully charged phone and a solar charger if you have one, a book or something to fight off boredom and lonelyness. Hope you sleep well after first night. Keep the bear spray handy. Take lots of pics and hammer a biggin' !

    Thanks WYODon,
    I plan on getting in their two days early and use the two days before season to scout some more and take alot of pictures. I was actually thinking about purchasing a SPOT locator. They seem like they would do the trick to send an OK message and also call for help if needed. I never thought about the book thats a great idea. I am pretty pumped just to say I did it!! I am hoping to shoot a nice one but if the opportunity does't present itself then oh well, it is just going to be an awesome experience.
