Youth New Mexico 16E tag

My 13 year old son drew a 16E youth hunt, starting Oct 10-14. I am looking for any advise on some starting points. We plan on setting up a camp and packing in from there. Never been to the unit, and its probably a once in a lifetime hunt for him, in that area. Thanks for any info.

Youth New Mexico 16E tag

I drew an Archery tag in 16E for Sept 1-10. I have hunted the Gila for many years and am familiar with the units all around 16E but do not have much experience in there. I will be scouting it all summer, starting with this weekend. I will be glad to share what ever information I can. If you have any information where to start I would appreciate it.

16E

Hey jasbeaver

I drew a muzzleloader tag in 16 E this year...Oct 17-21. I have hunted Archery twice, never late. Just wondering how your hunt went, and what what you found. We will probably camp between Cottonwood tank and Highway Tank. I would be more than grateful for any info on where you found elk.

16 E

I am not too familiar with the area. My buddy I am hunting with hunted around Pelona a few years ago. He knows it well. How was the hunt? Did you score?

I'd love to get on the phone with you and chat about the area. Also looking for a packer. Let me know if I can pick your brain a bit.

November 16E cow hunt

I was wondering how everyone has done in 16E so far. I'll be out there late Nov. looking for a cow. What's the water like out there. Last year Pelona Peak and Shaw canyon was completely dry at that time. Are we looking at the same thing this year?
