Also someone with experience to help me do things right. I know plenty of areas and not asking to show me yours spots. Just want people to go out with pack hunt and help each other become more successful. I deer,bear,elk when i get tags, predator and small game hunt as well as fish. I dont plan on doing any trips past 2 nights at first.

Hello, I am not experienced hunting by any means, but I will nonetheless be hiking out into the western section of unit 34 in the spring for over the counter Barbary sheep. My schedule will limit me to weekend trips. I do have a fair bit of experience in the outdoors and am very confident in my land navigation skills. I wouldn't limit myself to that area, it just allows me fairly quick access from the El Paso area so I plan to try there first. I don't have a problem sharing learning experiences if you had the time to join me. I will be using the OnX system, but I also plan to get the topo maps of that area as well. I will be using the MGRS style maps because that is what I am familiar with, and I can teach you how to use it. April is a ways off, but hit me up if you are interested.

I use trekking poles in unit 34 for barbs. I really try to trim the weight off of everything in my pack, and my body lol, so that I can endure the beat down of going all out for a few days at a time.
