    NM Unit 36 mule deer question

    So I have the opportunity to get a mid November rifle mule deer tag for unit 36 in NM. Is this a decent unit for deer? I'm not looking for honey hole coordinates, ( though if u want to help locate them that'd be awesome) I'm really just hoping to hear really quick if it's a unit that will give good odds of success. I have to let my friend know by tomorrow if I want the tag so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    This unit has fairly high deer densities but the trophy quality is marginal. Really good elk and turkey unit! Beautiful country as well as good deer numbers. Should be a good tag if your not set on killing a 170.

    How feasible would a 150ish be in 2.5 days of hunting?

    The best area to begin in my mind would be the Lincoln natl forest near the border with the Mescalero apache indian reservation. Some nice bucks are taken in the forest each year. O yeah and remember this is billy the kid country so watch out for the outlaws!

    I would say it is very possible. In my limited experience the buck usually top out around that with a few exceptions. Lotsa bucks in the unit though.

    Good luck! I wouldn't go unless I could hunt the whole 5 days.
