I am moving to New Mexico Jan/Feb 2011. I want to hunt an elk but have never been hunting in my life. I have been trying to use the internet to get more info on the subject but all I keep running into is site for guided tour hunts for thousands of dollars. I don't want to drive a truck up to an elk and shoot it. I wanted to ask everyone on here for advice/tips/help. I am totally inexperianced and know nothing about hunting. I need to know what kind of rifle to use, where to go, what to wear, how to find elk, what to do if I kill one, etc. Thnaks in advance for the help.
