New Mexico’s Unit 4 consistently produces the largest and most robust mule deer in New Mexico and the Rocky Mountains. The Timbers has been awarded a special incentive tag for its work and performance in increasing the habitat for this awesome animal. We only take one hunter per year on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to potentially harvest a mule deer for the record books. This hunt offers the hunter any five days of hunting during December or January for a very special deer. This is a No draw hunt and only the very serious mule deer hunter should inquire!
