My friends and I are looking into trying an odd unit into our apps this year (due in a few days!) and keep pondering unit 26 due to decent odds to draw and fill. However, I haven't found many online recaps of hunts there, and the ones I do include a lot of concern about illegal immigrant activity, land access, border patrol, and what sounds like a pretty tough hunt.

Anyone here ever try it?

Can't say I have. Have you called a game warden or biologist down there? Any units right on the border with knows illegal/drug activity makes me very nervous.

I have only antelope and javi hunted in that unit. Never done deer but there is some good ones down there. There is a lot of checkerboard and weird property boundaries. Hoping to draw an archery antelope tag there this year again. Send me a pm if you need more info. I know a lot of this unit like the back of my hand. If you pull deer tags I can send you in on some public that most hunters ignore. No promise on getting a deer though
