Valle Vidal Bull Tag

I drew an Oct 11-15 bull tag for the Valle Vidal and live 1000 miles away. Just found this website and am wondering if anyone has hunted there and can suggest where I should concentrate my efforts. I'll have a couple of days to scout and could use some help. What size bulls can a hunter expect and is there alot of pressure that makes the elk hole up and hard to find. Thanks for any info you can provide.

I have never hunt that area, never drew a tag, but some of my friend live in the area, they are around that area all the time and some of them have hunted it, won’t be until Tuesday or Wednesday until I contact them.

Thanks , I'll look forward to hearing from you. My wife and I are preparing to back pack in a small camp if that helps any. We just don't know where. We are used to hunting 7-9500 feet in steep country, some parks, nervous public lands elk. we like the snow. Can't wait to see New Mexico.

I've never been lucky enough to draw that hunt. NM does a great job managing the herd there. It is elk heaven. You will still have bulls calling at that time. Souldn't be too hard to find them.

Good luck!

Congrates on the great draw. I've been thru the area and would love to hunt it some day. And if I drew it I'd probably hire a guide for at least a semi-guided hunt. Thats a great tag , make the most of it and good luck to you!

Thanks for the reply. Leave in 10 days. Hopefully will have 4 days of scouting and talk with some of the muzzleloaders if any hanging around. We had 20+ head of elk in the hayfield this morning doing a little bugling and making the heart race.
