Flight Crew Human Performance
I was landing on runway 35 at double eagle ii uncontrolled airport in NM. There were gusting wind conditions with left crosswind and possible windshear. I made a normal crosswind approach (ie; left wing down as necessary to prevent drifting and right rudder as required to keep nose pointing down runway); while maintaining recommended airspeed. When just about to touch down; the aircraft lifted unexpectedly and then dropped immediately and struck on mains followed instantly by nose gear. The aircraft bounced. I applied power and attempted to raise the nose with back elevator pressure. The nose dropped suddenly and the nose gear again struck the runway. The aircraft then porpoised several times until I could get it stabilized and stopped. I did not know it until I got out of the aircraft that the nose gear tire had blown and the propeller had struck the very tips of 2 of the 3 propeller blades. There was no personal injury or damage to other property and the aircraft never left the runway.

Title: CESSNA 206 PLT HAS AN UNSTABILIZED APCH AND OR LNDG; STRIKES THE PROP AND DAMAGES THE NOSEWHEEL ON LNDG.
Narrative: I WAS LNDG ON RWY 35 AT DOUBLE EAGLE II UNCTLED ARPT IN NM. THERE WERE GUSTING WIND CONDITIONS WITH L XWIND AND POSSIBLE WINDSHEAR. I MADE A NORMAL XWIND APCH (IE; L WING DOWN AS NECESSARY TO PREVENT DRIFTING AND R RUDDER AS REQUIRED TO KEEP NOSE POINTING DOWN RWY); WHILE MAINTAINING RECOMMENDED AIRSPD. WHEN JUST ABOUT TO TOUCH DOWN; THE ACFT LIFTED UNEXPECTEDLY AND THEN DROPPED IMMEDIATELY AND STRUCK ON MAINS FOLLOWED INSTANTLY BY NOSE GEAR. THE ACFT BOUNCED. I APPLIED PWR AND ATTEMPTED TO RAISE THE NOSE WITH BACK ELEVATOR PRESSURE. THE NOSE DROPPED SUDDENLY AND THE NOSE GEAR AGAIN STRUCK THE RWY. THE ACFT THEN PORPOISED SEVERAL TIMES UNTIL I COULD GET IT STABILIZED AND STOPPED. I DID NOT KNOW IT UNTIL I GOT OUT OF THE ACFT THAT THE NOSE GEAR TIRE HAD BLOWN AND THE PROP HAD STRUCK THE VERY TIPS OF 2 OF THE 3 PROP BLADES. THERE WAS NO PERSONAL INJURY OR DAMAGE TO OTHER PROPERTY AND THE ACFT NEVER LEFT THE RWY.
