I am going to New Mexico with my wife for a conference and we are planning on flying in 3 or 4 days earlier for a last minute vacation. We plan on flying into Albuquerque renting a car and traveling around the state sight seeing mostly nature and wildlife plus stopping in towns to eat and such making a route that ends up back in Albuquerque. I've never hunted NM or spent any time there other than passing through on the way to Colorado, but I figured this would be a good time to see the state and check out some areas to get a better idea of where I'd like to put in for and come back and really scout in the future. Any recommendations on things to do or places that we should see that are in/or passing through areas with decent public hunting access are appreciated. I'm not looking for anyone's spots or anything like that, i just would like to see some areas in person before applying and to make a non hunting trip a little about hunting. Feel free to PM me any advice for this trip.
