NM Valle Vidal Elk Hunt

Hello group,

I am fairly new to the site, but I have found some great stuff out there.

I was fortunate enough to get drawn for the first rifle hunt in the Valle Vidal unit and am very exited to see what my luck brings in October.

I travel quite a bit for work now and thus, my scouting opportunities will be limited so I was hoping to turn the the forum and gain some advice on location ideas in that large area and gain any other additional information I can about hunting the valle vidal.

I was able to go up and hike around for a day to familiarize myself with the area. After that hike, I am tempted to try and locate some horses for use during my hunt.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Congrats!

I drew the archery hunt there a few years back and you won't have much problem taking a big elk. We saw at least 500 animals a day and if I had a rifle or muzzleloader...I'd have a nice 350+ class bull on my wall now. The folks out there are very helpful and can figure out a way to transport a down animal without much hassle I would think.

Good luck!

Cary
