I drew a December mule deer tag at Matador WMA. Im pretty sure the compartments are drawn or assigned but there are only 10 tags and its 28,000 acres. If anyone has any info or suggestions please let me know.....

Congrats on the draw. After orientation, they will allow you to pick your compartment in the order that you were drawn. The best compartments for mule deer when I hunted a few years ago were the middle and the western compartments. Each compartment is huge, most several thousand acres. In fact, most compartments are larger than most entire WMA's!

Good luck!

I'm headed up for the first whitetail hunt Nov 9. I'll try to post when I get back. PM me at that point and I'll let you know. I haven't heard much from the guys on here about it. Sounds like a bad-A place.

Pretty sure we had the "Ox" pasture. Wide river bottom with a high overlook at the north end. Neighbor had a green field and the deer would funnel in/out of the bottom to and from the green field.
We killed a 138" 10pt WT and 153" 11pt WT from that spot. Had numerous monster muley Bucks feed by in route to the green field. It's an awesome draw hunt.
Best of luck!

Are they still bow only or can you gun hunt? Spent a couple of fun weekends out there in the early 90's when I was at Tech.

Make sure you come with really good glass, range finder and shooting sticks.

Practice taking 200-300 yard shots. Good luck. up

Let me know where you see some does. I'm taking my boys who were drawn for the Antlerless hunt in Dec. Also would like to know if 4wd is absolutely necessary. I don't have a 4wd so was hoping the pastures closest to HQ may not need 4wd.
