I have not hunted it ,but hope to next year w/a guide I know.PJ's and mesas,canyons. I'm moving just North in 12. The elk in the area are huge.Look for h2o. I can give you his name and outfitters info.
Hey, I would like to keep in touch. looking to put in for 15 and the16's bowhunt in 2010 and would like some help on narrowing down some places to camp and hunt. I have talked with the warden for unit 15 and he has pointed me in the Johnson basin area for the late bow hunt.
Any other help is greatly appreciated.
I'll let you know how my hunt goes next month. My dad has hunted unit 15 the past 3 years and really enjoys it. I've got a buddy who has bow hunted in 16. He said there are lot of monster bulls. The past years that he's gone has been too hot so it kinda messed up the hunt.
A little tip on NM draws...don't just put in for the top units.Apply for a less well known unit for third choice and you will draw,don't bother with fourth choice unless you want to fill a cow tag in a marginal unit.
Yeah, one that is 100% draw!! Just kidding..If you check NMDGF website they have the odds posted for last year and such. Hard to decipher til you figure it out...or join Huntin Fool and get them already figured out,easy.
There are some other units of interest, like 45 and 34 but I did not want to waste time in those units and I know that drawing 15's and 16's are going to be hard. We just didn't want to draw a tag just to draw a tag and hunt and chase 200 inchers around. should I rethink my third choice hunt. for 45 or 34 ???
As the allure of hunting big whitetails becomes more and more a passion for many, we are finding that the recent (historically speaking) popularity of hunting deer from a tree stand is becoming the way to do it. I'll make no statement either for or against that technique here. This will be simply an essay on what I feel are some outstanding rifles for tree stand use.
Before we go even one more step, let's all remember that safety is first and foremost for anyone wanting to hunt...
