Drew my first lope tag. It’s in eastern NM. It happens to be a pretty tough tag to draw, in a quite a large area, with only a few tags issued, and only three days to hunt. As such, there’s a reasonable chance of a good being in the unit. I’ve seen pronghorns, but I’ve never hunted them, and couldn’t even begin to cover the area in three days. Is there anything I should be looking for that sets one area of flat country apart from another? There are some irrigated agg fields that I’m sure will have some, but is that the first place people look and thus the worst place for a good one? Water is semi limited. Is there a distance from water that is too far to be worth looking? Any tips would be appreciated.
