GMU 51 NM elk hunt

I have hunted it in september and been there throughout the winter months, Magote Ridge will hold alot of elk as well as fifteen springs area. They will still be rutting but probably call shy by then so just listen for them at night and find fresh sign during the day. Stay away from roads and easy access points as others will hunt before you do. Get a Carson NF map, and have good mud tires cause it will rain or snow for sure.
Good luck
