    I have no idea where 16B is but I'm betting it is in the northern part of the state....perhaps close to Santa Fe. To me that is one of the prettiest areas in the country....and the food there is outstanding (but hot!!!)!

    Congrats!

    Congrats bud...what guide you using? I was unsuccessful but did a 16B hunt three years ago---cool stuff with primitive only equipment and horses/wall tents.

    Congrats on the draw....Now get after it and get in shape.. :D. Some range time may be in order not knowing how far or close you can get to one for a shot. And you want to make that first one count for sure.

    Great outfit and great tag Greg! I didn’t draw elk or sheep in NM this year but good to know someone that did. Lookin’ forward to the Fall hunts and to see what kinda bull you bring outta 16B.

    yeah, already started. this was the incentive that will push me to get back in shape. it's been a few yrs since i did a serious mountain pack in hunt so i need to drop 25 lbs or so.

    i may end up staying out there for a month if they'll put me to work, elk early Oct and couse deer early Nov. in unit 22, or my Az outfitter buddy told me to come over and glass for his hunters between my hunts. the wife goes on a lion hunt the first week of Dec with Chapel.
