All, just found this forum and wondering if anyone could tell me about Unit 15B in NEW MEXICO. I bought a PRIVATE Land Owner tag for Archery in this unit and I know nothing about the unit. The tag can be used unit wide.
I am from New Mexico. Unit 51 is in the Carson National Forest. I have never been hunting there but know that it is loaded with big elk. My friends that have gone all used horseback. This is going to be a new experience if you have never seen rough country. You may want to visit the nm game and fish dept and see if they will allow fourwheelers in the forest. You are going to have one tough time packing an elk out alone. There are some really long shots so pack nothing lighter than a .270. I would recommend a flat shooter like a .264 or 300 mag. Have a great trip!
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
I have -...
