New Mexico Archery Elk

never been in that area except to drive through it. working on getting some maps together and have been talking to several guides trying to get a feel of what the area is like. i see there are two wilderness areas (the witthington and the kid apache). have been told that access is reasonably good for the majority of the area and that it is a mixture of topography. some rough, some relatively easy. it's going to be guided for me, i just would like to be able to keep my costs at a minimum and maybe just hire a guide for calling and locating the elk. i have a toyhauler and an ATV so i can be self sufficient. i also have a wall tent and plenty of gear.
