"Tom's New Mexico Muley"
Photo provided by: Tom Armendariz

Tom Armendariz writes, "This was my first hunt ever and I only had two days to hunt. We hunted on Nov. 8th and 9th. My partner tagged a small 4-point buck the first morning. I only saw one buck the first day and it was too far for my .270 to take a shot and it was moving away. We were in unit 34 of New Mexico. The next morning I took a shot at a small 4-point buck, but could not find a trail of blood or a dead deer. I kept walking around a small canyon and this huge 4x4 with great brow tines jumped out in front of me (about 15ft). I walked up on him bedded down. I took an impulse shot, without even seeing him in the scope (too fast to react)...well he went down near a tree about 10 yards away. I took one more shot to kill him and it is amazing how large he is!"
