Hello there. A few buddies and I are going to Unit 9 (Mt. Taylor) for cow elk this weekend. I had success out there a couple years ago on a late season cow hunt. I dropped a nice size cow near Horace Mesa. During that time we also saw quite a few cows on the north side near Effran Tank and Antelope Flats. When we scouted a couple weeks ago, the Antelope Flats area was very dry and there were hardly any tracks. I didn't see any sign over there. The only elk we saw were a couple of spikes in the trees and a small group eating hay in a private field.
Has anyone hunted unit 9 this year? Any recommendations on where the cows may be hanging out? It's pretty mild and very dry out there. Any info is appreciated!
