I've got the regs from last year and corresponded with a person that copordinates the draw. I came away with the impression it is a waste of money. They issue a couple tags and only get a few applicants. Since you cannot scout beforehand it would be tough. I'm not even sure they know how many of these critters are actaully running around. I'd love to be wrong though.

According to the big game NM regs. they are considered to be a non game species and require only a small game license to hunt. MTG

Yes, but since the population (if there is one) resides on the Laguna Pueblo reservation, they run the drawing and can dictate fees, rules, etc...

Default Laguna Pueblo Game Unit 8 at Old Mt Taylor Game Ranch

Hi All,
New to the forum. Have become interested in the Tahr after completing a forest inventory contract for the Laguna Pueblo on their game unit east of Mt. Taylor. I was not allowed to remove any antlers, etc while working but took this photo in Water Canyon on the east side of the unit. That is my wife modeling the horn in question. I didn't consider that it may be a Himilayan Tahr horn until I discussed trying to hunt one with my boss. Is this a Tahr horn?

Unfortunately, no that is not a Tahr horn, they have a base similar to that except they are much shorter with no curl to them. They are about the length and curve of a mountain goat horn. That is, unless they grow funny in New Mexico.
