There's some good opportunities in the Eagles Nest Wilderness. North of the wilderness, in the new unit 361, there is a ton of ATV trails if your dad isn't very mobile. The elk use that area a lot, but it won't take long to push them south into the wilderness. You don't have to backpack in, as there are some decent places to hunt within two miles of the roads.
If you're dad is pretty mobile, avoid those ATV trails like the plague.

The White River National Forest map has all the ATV regulations on it. National Geographic Trails Illustrated may also help. Not sure off hand, but it might be # 107.
