Need Help with NM unit 37 Elk hunt

I drew a Unit 37 late season elk tag (Dec 4-8). I have been in the unit scouting and I have seen evidence of the September Rut, but nothing new and not an Elk in sight. I have seen posts in other forums they say the elk seam to just disappear in Nov. Confused Does anyone have any experience in this Unit 37? I live by unit 34, but was unsuccessful in the original draw and unit 37 was what I ended up with in the late season. I don't know that area very well and due to military commitments I don't have a lot of time to scout and I will only have two days to hunt. Any information would be greatly appreciated.Help!

Would love to help you but

Would love to help you but I've never hunted 37. I have hunted 16, 30 and 34.

In 2005 I drew a 2nd season cow tag in 34. I did see some cow elk up in the mountains and everything seemed to be behaving normal. I even saw a nice bull along with that group of cows.

Good luck on your hunt.

Thanks for the replies

Thanks for the words of encouragement, but it seems no body has hunted this area. We have been scouting there a few times and the only elk we have seen are right off the main why and on private land. Seen plenty of mule deer. I wish this was I unit 34. I know that area and I know where plenty of large elk are.

I have been told of elk in

I have been told of elk in the pine lodge area and have seen them between White Oaks and the rode north out of Captain.

I have not hunted 37 since the late 80s but I like the area, just havent had the opp.

Good luck.
