Elk hunt NM Unit 6c

Both my kids (12 & 16) drew elk tags in Unit 6c,  we've never hunted this area. Anyone have any areas worth while? 

Thanks

Elk hunt NM Unit 6c

Haven't hunted in there in a lot of years but back in the late 90's took a cow off the rim of Alamo Canyon in the Dome Wilderness.  A fire burned through the area in 1996 so it's mostly small trees and high grass.  Watched a NMGF officer put down a nice 5x5 bull near Sawyer Mesa (it had been hit in an earlier season and my brother and I found it laying about a 100 yards off the road starving.). The Dome area is usually better for the late hunts (December...) after the elk start to move off the Valles Caldera towards the Bandelier National Monument.

Have also seen elk back up from Coyote/Youngsville but the road gets really rough.
