New Mexico, 2013, 2B Mule Deer
Since 2006 I have been putting in for a New Mexico tag in Unit 2, next to the famed Jicarilla Apache Reservation. Finally, this year I drew a tag for the third rifle season, November 2 to November 6 in Unit 2B. I was really lucky. The odds were so small, somewhere between 3.39% and 7.41% using last years draw odds. To be certain, I am lucky and blessed. I never gave up the dream of having the opportunity. Like any hunter, I hope I have a shot opportunity on a great buck. May God keep my health intact until I get there! It's simply a great opportunity and privilege in a great unit to go as hard as I can and try to turn up a great muley. Turning 60 a month after this hunt I'll be hitting a milestone. I still believe the best is yet to come!
