    New Mexico desert sheep

    I intend to enjoy every minute of the hunt. The peloncillos are in unit 27, just across the border from the chiricahuas in Arizona.

    New Mexico desert sheep

    I drew a tag for desert bighorn here in New Mexico this year. The hunt is not until november but I have already mad several scouting trips and located some sheep. I thought I would start a thread about it here and post some pictures of some of the sheep I have found and keep it updated throughout the year.

    25 creedmoor anyone?

    20 moa base will be plenty to get you out to your desired range.

    High BC, Fast Twist .257...

    I think I would stick with the 7.5 twist. I'm assuming the recommendation for 7 twist from hammer bullets is so they could be shot at lower velocities from smaller cartridges. As far as the weatherby freebore my guess would be that they shortened it up so handloaders can get the bullets closer to the lands for accuracy purposes.

    I am running the 131s in a 25 creedmoor with a 7.25 twist. 7.5 would be fine at weatherby velocities. I'm running them at 2980 fps

    First coues

    I left new Mexico headed for Arizona late Friday afternoon. We arrived in camp around midnight and after a short four hours woke up to begin the hike in to the hunting area. Daylight found us hiking up a sign covered ridge to get a vantage point to glass from. After an hour we had turned up a doe and a fawn so we decided to work our way further up the ridge for a little different view. As I was wading through the shoulder high grass and oak brush I spotted a deer slipping across the ridge in front of me. I eased forward hoping for another glimpse and made it to the end of the ridge without another glimpse. I sat down on a rock to contemplate which thicket he had given me the slip in. Just then I caught movement in a header below me and saw a deer walking at 150 yards. I set up my rifle and got behind it while my cousin inspected the deer and confirmed there were two bucks with the front being the largest. I quickly picked up the deer and with the shooting window disappearing I settled on the deer and squeezed the trigger. The deer dropped on the spot and rolled down the hillside. I got him quartered and the meat divided and the packout began. There was a fair amount of slipping tripping and cussing but two hours later we were back at the truck having a celebratory beer. He is not a big buck by any means but he does have some character and a really cool deformation on his left antler. I am happy to have taken him.

    The quality and high demand designation is based completely on how many people put in for a hunt. Lots of people put in for the really good hunts so those are the ones designated as Q/HD
