Unit 34 New Mexico elk

Just wondering what everyone thought about Unit 34. Any advice about early archery in the Lincoln National Forest?

Are you kidding me? That's the best of the best. Trophy! Great terrain. Those are almost always "High Demand" or "Quality" hunts. I'm pretty sure when you get one of those your ineligible to apply the following year. I'll have to check again. But, great animals in there.

Unit 34 Elk

Unit 34 has been known for some monster trophies. I was in that unit hunting turkey and saw plenty of elk. A good area to hunt is pinon draw. That is over by sacramento/ weed. Got to watch out for that area because of the patches of private land. PM me for some more info. I need to look up some directions to get to pinon draw.

Unit 34 New Mexico elk

I hunted that unit in 2005 for elk. Had a great time and saw a bunch of them. Good luck, I'm pretty sure that anywhere you go it should be good.
