So after 3 years of unsuccess draws since being stationed in NM, I finally drew some tags. I've hunted Mule Deer my whole life and have been bow hunting for the past 8 years, however, this will be my first elk hunt. Can anyone provide me some tips on hunting in this area? Any info would be appreciated.

Right on, I will also be doing alot of scouting in that area as well. My friend got a nice bull last year with a mz. Hopefully I will be able to get on some elk. Have you looked into any certain areas?

ANY WORD ON UNIT 15 FIRE DANGERS.. ?
any info how close fire is to unit 15 NM ?? drew a ML tag in 15 and am curious on an honest opinion ??

The fire is still southeast of 15 and should not be a problem for that hunt. But with conditions as they are places are under restrictions. Call FS office in Quemado or Reserve to see about closures. We need rain around here bad.

I hunted 15 last year, but
I hunted 15 last year, but with a muzzleloader. I didn't tag out but saw lots of bulls. It is a great unit i think and should be a great hunt if you get some rain. I am also hunting Unit 15 agian this year but for Antelope this time.

Last year i hunted the 1st
Last year i hunted the 1st Muzzleoader hunt and saw bulls every day. I think Slaughter Mesa is over rated. Closer to the Lake would be my 1st chose. I hunted a couple different herds North of the lake on the other side of the road. Did you get a bow tag or Muzzleloader tag?
