Average bull scores for GMU 51 New Mexico

Anyone know where I could find information indicating the average bull score for a certain GMUs within New Mexico? Im lookins specifically in GMU 51. Also, I saw a website that sells maps of areas showing migration routes of elk. Unfortunately it didnt have any available for New Mexico. Does anyone know where this could be found as well?

well i am not sure about

well i am not sure about migration maps but do know that do move alot in GMU 51.  depends when your hunt is?   The average size bull is around 300"  I few will hit the 340-350 mark but not many.  The bigger bulls are in the western part of the state, GMU 15,all of the 16's, 17, 13.  all these units have 350-400 inch bulls.

Well i have hunted this area

Well i have hunted this area twice. Once in late October I saw an average 6x6 standing broadside at 75 yards. Unfortunately all I had was a cow tag. Im not good at judging inches but I would estimate him as around 300. The next time I hunted there was early October and all I saw was a small bull and a few cows. There is deffinately less activity or sign when its warm there. Thats why I put in for the late season bull hunt this year. I have hunted the 16s before, I just felt like there was always alot of pressure there, always stumbled on more hunters than animals. Thanks for the info.
