2010 Elk Hunt

I have decided to apply this year for New Mexico's elk bow hunts in units 34 and 36 (Sept 1-10) but I am unsure of what the third choice should be.

Should I try 34 or 36 with a rifle or try a diffrent unit with a bow (Example 21A)??? Any info or comments will be appretiated. Thanks!

Re: 2010 Elk Hunt

In unit 37, would you recomend the Capitan Wilderness area near Capitan, NM or the National Forest lands near White Oaks, NM???

What kind of terrain would I be looking at? How accesible is the land?? Should I hunt at a higher elevation due to the warm september weather???

Thanks

37 would not be my first or 3rd. There is alot of private land. I would put 52 or 9 as a 3rd unless it has to be down south. Good luck! Thumbs up
