NM units 51,52?

Anyone familiar with these units? I have been there but not hunting and was told to avoid the Tres Peidres zoo . Any advice?

NM units 51,52?

I've hunted there a few years with good success. It's only a zoo if you spend your time in the areas easily accessed by vehicle/4wheeler. If the migration is on, I usually see a good number of elk on Olguin Mesa. If the migration is not on, then I've had best luck hunting the thick aspens stands in the Cruces basin. If you're willing to put in a few miles on foot you'll find elk eventually and won't see too many hunters.

Thanks a bunch! I plan on hiking in w/pack, or just out of camp/truck. Those where on my list of look at areas. I was told they are there in numbers,just don't expect a BC bull everywhere. And the hunt dates allow me to put in for deer too! And make up for the delayed guided Gila hunt I had hoped for this year. I'll try again for that next year. Thanks again crittergitter!
