Yes it is a hard state to draw in and got harder for the NR last year. In either 7 or 8 years I have drawn two tags, a third choice deer hunt that was basically a meat hunt and and rifle antelope that was good. I really considered giving up on NM last year when the NR percentage changed, but ended up sticking with it because I would really like to go after a Oryx.
If you were to apply for all the critters, you are talking about tying up some serious cash for a short term, especially if you are applying for two. Right now I think I might give it up in NM, but more than likely come application time next year I will be submitting. The application game is almost as much fun as the hunts.
