          i recently zig zagged thru NM on my way to CA. i had zero luck. i spoke with several local business owners about hunting there. they all said the same thing-lots of points around, all on private property. one gas station owner pointed me down a dirt road to a dry creek bed. i drove down there and saw about 10 signs saying trespassers will be shot. i could at least one really nice point sticking out. the base was still stuck in the creek bottom. i left before i did anything stupid and kept going til i hit the Pacific. i also tried some farms that had freshley plowed fields. no luck. i also took my kayak out on a few reservoirs and trout streams. i found some very promising areas-clay river banks and bottoms, some sandy and gravely shorelines where the water had just dropped and some mud banks. (at least they would be promising in TN...) I hope you have better luck!

            Thanks everyone! It does look like mostly Indian land and private property. I have found some nice public land with hiking trails that we have been on but that’s about it so far.

              You’ll need to look on private land in NM.
