New Mexico Unit 45 Pecos Wilderness Elk Info

Hi, I just drew an archery Elk tag in the Pecos Wilderness Area (unit 45) of New Mexico. I was wondering if anyone has ever hunted this area (bow, Muzzy, or rifle). I have never hunted this area and was wondering if anyone had any tips they would like to share ( elk sightings, kills, close calls, or anything thing else that would help. I greatly appreciate your time!

Thank You!

I also drew archery unit 45. I have never hunted this area before, but looks like lots of fun. I am going up this weekend to have a look.

I drew an elk tag in 45. Anybody hunted HG canyon for elk before? I'm limited to walk-in access.

I went up from Holy Ghost this morning and hiked in as far as my kids could handle walking. Steep terrain and very treed area, when I get a chance to go without the kids I am going to hike up to lake from Holy Ghost. Beautiful place but lots of people this time of year. Didnt see any sign of Elk.

Yeah, I've been in HG area in the spring, but not in the fall.
