Sanctuary Cities

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 19-04-2018


I read on the internet this morning that 80% of American do not support having sanctuary cities. Wow…..80%….I find it hard to believe. I read the Albuquerque Journal every day and based on what I read there it’s more like 80% support sanctuary cities. I suppose it depends on where you are, who you are, and what your readership base is….Well, they do have to sell papers and advertising  I reckon….Now that could be a part of the problem of this web site. ….Nah, I couldn’t do that. Sanctuary cites going against their own government is not right. No wonder we have so many problems in this country, we just ignore the laws, or pick and choose the laws we like….I would imagine about 80% are against same sex marriage also and about the same 80% against abortion. So, I should not be surprised or shocked that the 20% kicking up the fuss is getting their way.

Persian Ibex….New Mexico Hunts…Only Place in America to Hunt Ibex

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 14-04-2018


Tags for Ibex hunting is by draw for a once in a lifetime tag. Muzzleloader, rifle or bow. The following information is from Kiowa Hunting outfitters who’s information is shown at the bottom of the Page. Go to  info@kiowahunters.com for more information.



Our high success on the hunts is due to stratigies we have developed from decades of analysis of ibex behavior and specifically their different behaviors during each type of hunt along with differences due to weather changes. As of December 2017 the SCI record book credits our management and guide staff with bow kills numbered 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 14, 15 and 16. We took number 14 in 2014, number 5 in 2015 and number 3 in 2017. Only numbers 12 and 19 are credited to other outfitters. Across all record book weapon catagories we have exactly 80% of the New Mexico ibex entries that are credited to currently operating outfitting companies. That is why people choose to hunt with Kiowa.

The ibex inhabit public land on the scenic Florida Mountains from just above 7000 feet down to the desert shrub at the base. The herd is currently slightly over populated at about 800 animals, with a sustainable portion of mature billies. In fact, the SCI records show that the highest scoring rifle killed and bow killed billies worldwide came from New Mexico. A mounted billy is a stand out in anyone’s trophy room. Our success is well above 90% with rifle and muzzle loader. Since our first bow ibex kill in 1988 our archery success is right at 22% which is more than four times as high as the average success for bow ibex hunters.

Hunts occur from October through January with a youth hunt during the school Christmas break. Licenses are issued by drawing. On average a non-resident is about 2 ½ times more likely to draw if he uses our outfitter number on his application. Not surprisingly, the bow tags are the easiest to draw. Most of our bow kills are at ranges under 70 yards and usually in the 35 to 40 yard range. You must come prepared to shoot out to 60 and 70 yards for your best chance for a successful hunt. The two billies pictured on this page are from our recent hunts.

  • Cost of hunt includes: Use of our outfitter number on your application, hot breakfasts and evening meals in comfortable surroundings plus snacks & drinks to carry, courtesy transportation during the hunt, the most experienced ibex guides & spotters in New Mexico, assistance with retrieval of your animal, and caping for trophy preparation.
  • The hunter is responsible for: Applying for the license with our help, lodging, a daypack, hunting gear and transportation to and from the hunt near Deming, NM.

Gun Control…This e-mail From A Friend Down In Texas

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 05-04-2018


As you read this history of guns, remember when you vote which party in this Country wants to take away your guns. 


In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control:
From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control:
From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend
themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938:
From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935:
From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Guatemala established gun control in 1964:
From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970:
From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956:
From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


56 million defenseless people were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control.———————–

You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
With guns, we are ‘citizens’; without them, we are ‘subjects’.
During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!
If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control
message to all of your friends.
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.
The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.
I’m a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward this. If you’re not a believer, please reconsider the true facts. This is history; not what’s being shown on TV, sanctioned by our illustrious delusional leaders in Washington.
This should go for grandmas also. 

Thanks, Dave….


Mexican Presidential Candidate….Hoping He Wins…Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador…

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 02-04-2018


Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is running for the office of President of Mexico and from what I have read, I hope he is elected. He is pushing for doubling the minimum wage, create a tax free border commercial zone and demand for mutual respect from the USA. If he can do anything to keep the Mexican people south of the border working and having sufficient income to support their families there then we will not have any need for a wall. And with both countries having money to support their families the economies of both countries will rise. Mexico needs to start taking care of the lower class members of it people. That will cure most of the problems Mexico suffers. I know there is more to it than I have presented, but electing Mr. Obrador seems to me to be a good start.

Good luck, sir…..
