Unit 27 is the Peloncillo and the Guadalupe mountains, do you have a tag for there?

Have hunted and guided Coues and mule deer down there. Some really good desert bighorns in there these days. Never saw nor heard of any elk down that way...

You thinking 17?

Always thought it would be cool to have some elk down there running between The Animas range over the Peloncillos and into the Chiricahuas...

The Chiricahuas could definitely support a nice elk herd. I was wondering why AZ didn't start a herd there.

Somebody needs to learn how to spell Guadalupe... I know, I know, Spanish is a tough one for some... Geography can be difficult as well;)

"The Chiricahuas could definitely support a nice elk herd. I was wondering why AZ didn't start a herd there."

It probably isn't traditional elk range, much like AZ G&FD does not want elk on the Kaibab despite it being excellent elk habitat.

Lol Treeline. I'm blaming that one on autocorrect on my "smart phone" ;)
