Well a week from today I am planning to head down to my unit in New Mexico for a scouting trip. I’m flying down renting a truck and spending 3 days in the unit. Hunt isn’t until October. I have spent plenty of time e-scouting the area. A very small section of the unit was burned in the hermits/calf canyon fire but right now a good majority of the unit is closed by forest service because they are doing remediation work on fire lines they cut in. I spoke with forest service and the local biologist. Both seemed to think that it will re-open before the first archery season. Am I stupid to still go down considering 4 of the 5 spots I planned on scouting are inaccessible right now? I can still hike into a few areas and get a general lay of the land. I plan to have two days of scouting before the hunt starts also. Am I wasting my time doing this august trip and should I just add a day or two ahead of the hunt if I can swing it or should I just stick to my original plan???
