From: elkstabber

No Elk Tag for me, but drew a Barbary sheep tag in January!! Two friends drew 1st season 16E. Best of luck to all that Drew tags!

Congrats trophy

From: jingalls
17-Apr-19
First time ever to apply... I WON THE LOTTERY!!! Elk 2-223 first season!

Anyone that would be willing to offer assistance I would do the same for Kansas tags! Good luck to all!

From: bigeasygator
17-Apr-19
I just drew the same exact tag as you, jingalls. Hunted the unit in 2012 and excited to get back (and hopefully have a different result!).

From: jingalls
17-Apr-19
Sawwwweeeeeeeet! I live about 8-9 hour drive to reach it. So I’m already planning scouting trips. What’s it like? Never hunted NM!

From: MQ1
17-Apr-19
Red again.

From: Muddyboots
17-Apr-19
In this state you are supposed to decide if you want red or green. I ordered green and got red.

From: BowmanMD
17-Apr-19
Got super lucky (again!) and my 14yo son drew his first elk tag, Valle Vidal. 0.6% odds for NR. That just about matches my archery 16D Gila tag last year! Love it! Doing this one unguided, so hopefully Valle Vidal is as magic as everyone says it is!

From: jingalls
17-Apr-19
BowmanMD that’s AMAZING! Congrats to you and your son. I hope he has an exceptional hunt!!!

From: trophyhill
17-Apr-19
Thx Bob! A buddy drew a muzzy tag in a unit you are very familiar with too! Can't wait to call him one in!

From: Rocky D
17-Apr-19
Nada for me, congratulations to the lucky few!

From: Brotsky
17-Apr-19
Some of you guys are definitely living right! Some awesome tags drawn here!

17-Apr-19
Well, if nothing else, I'm consistent. I've still never drawn NM elk.

From: Habitat
17-Apr-19
Deer and elk here

From: uteangler
17-Apr-19
All red for me also. Did get my dad drawn for a great rifle hunt though! Congratulations to the successful few! And good luck!

From: Pop-r

Green 2nd choice!

From: hawg
17-Apr-19
I drew 3 times in the early 90's and zilch since...including this year...I'll be getting too old to ever go back if it doesn't happen soon.

From: bigeasygator
17-Apr-19
deserthunter and BowmanMD y'all are in for a treat. I drew VV first year I ever put in. Still remains the most amazing elk hunt I've ever been on by far.

jingalls, Unit 13 is a crazy unit. The habitat is very, very diverse. From your typical elk habitat (think meadows and timber) to straight up rocks and desert...and the elk can be in any of it. Don't know how it's changed over the last seven years, but there weren't a lot of elk there and you had to work hard to locate them. But there are some absolute monsters in that unit.

From: SteveB
17-Apr-19
Red, but with my choices no real surprise. Utah only one left then it’s a search for a great cancellation or leftover hunt on a LO tag. Maybe this year I’ll wait until it’s really late and see what opens up. I’ve seen some good deals once I’m already booked.

From: Z Barebow
17-Apr-19
No soup for me.

17-Apr-19
Nope, that’s ok though, be a lil busy as it is...Congrats to those who drew!

green means go , going to new mexico this fall unit 17 - muzzleloader - elk , things are falling in place

From: mkf65
17-Apr-19
I drew at tag in Unit 17, NM starting Jan.1st, guided hunt.

I drew last about 5 years ago and the hunt was guided and was an epic fail! I was hoping I might get some input on everyone's thought on that unit and if my odds might get any better in unit 17, tips, pointers, all is appreciated.

From: mkf65
17-Apr-19
to clarify, for Mule deer unit 17

From: butcherboy
17-Apr-19
Antelope for me. 8 applications and pulled one great tag. 26 applications within my family circle and got 3 tags total

From: JSW
17-Apr-19
The streak ends this year. This will be the first year since 2008 without an elk tag. I knew it couldn't last. I did manage to get a January deer tag, private land, no surprise, and a February off range oryx tag. I will be packing elk for my brother in the Caldera this year. Pretty excited about that.

Nothing here for me or my dad. Congrat' to those who drew. I can help in 15, 36 and 52

18-Apr-19
Green first choice!

From: Zim
18-Apr-19
Latest nonrefundable fee chased me off. Same reds since 2011 but no charge. Much better odds elsewhere. Drew 6 straight NR tags in the 90's but times have changed since outfitter welfare.

18-Apr-19
Nothing for me but that's okay, I have a Wyoming tag and still waiting for longshot Utah results...

From: KHNC
18-Apr-19
Looking forward to another elk hunt in NM. Cant believe i drew it again. Figured twice was my lifetime limit.

From: Kodaman
18-Apr-19
Headed to Valle Vidal from PA for the first archery season archery with my buddy. We drew the DIY NR tags ....just could not believe it. Still walking around in disbelief a day later.

Drew a 36-37 rifle tag and I guess that is the land of the giants...super excited...all ears for someone that knows the unit I never stepped foot in it but will numerous times before season

From: jdee
18-Apr-19
What’s a 36 - 37 rifle tag ?

From: WapitiBob
18-Apr-19
Maybe like a "Grant County" license up here ???

From: deserthunter
18-Apr-19
Pretty sure you have either a 36 or a 37 license but not one for both.

From: swampokie
18-Apr-19
Zip for mr. swampokie. Thought this was the year for 34 second. Guess not congrats to u lucky lottery winners. New mexico has become a super tag lottery state. Even for the units that used to be lower tier. Maybe a waiting period if drawn? Seeing way too many people saying they've saw the red glow for 8,9,10 even 12 years. Even with non refundable rabbit license record 209000 applicants. Tuff draw but congrats to all u that "won" a tag

From: HDE
18-Apr-19
Makes you wonder how many of those 209,000 applications were legit...?

36 -37 Pronghorn tag oppps

Can we finally stop the nonsense talk about price hikes, cc fees, and non refundable licenses, reducing the number of applicants?

From: trophyhill

From: PushCoArcher

Bob hope springs eternal. Sometimes it's easier to believe a beautiful lie then the ugly truth that odds across the west are steadily getting worse almost without exception.

From: midwest
19-Apr-19
I wonder how many applied this year not knowing their small game license will not be refunded this time.

Congrats to all who drew!

From: Trial153
19-Apr-19
look at the bright side, I just quoted 6500 for unit wide LO tag.

From: jdee
19-Apr-19
Could be worse... if you’ve got some extra money you can be hunting in some great elk units in NM. In AZ you either draw or your SOL and I’ve been SOL in AZ for going on 16 straight years.

From: doubledrop
19-Apr-19
Congrats for those of you with the draw. I was unsuccessful on first attempt, wasn't too surprised. Especially since we applied in a group of 3. Probably will avoid entering as a group in the future. Good luck to you all.

From: spinedoc

I got Elk 2-232 for late Sep. It was third choice. Pretty excited to go. Never hunted NM before. Any advice?

From: ohiohunter
19-Apr-19
"2-232" means little to nothing unless someone is willing to rifle through the proc to find which unit it is.

From: jdee
19-Apr-19
That’s the second bow hunt in 15 ......Great tag for sure. If your thinking of an outfitter call Mick Chapel and his boys in Quemado, NM

From: LINK
19-Apr-19
Rut in 15 for a third choice. Swinging for the fences. I like your style.

From: ohiohunter
19-Apr-19
Thats a helluva 3rd choice snag!

From: jingalls
19-Apr-19
Sorry ohio, I did the same thing!-( I’m a newby at it and this was the first time I’ve ever applied for NM. Sounds like spinedoc was in the same boat. When you look at your account that’s how it’s listed. We will get up to speed with the rest of you!

From: Brotsky
19-Apr-19
I LOL at the NM draw thread every year. Lots of posts that say "First time I put in for NM and drew some hunt in Valle Vidal. Never hunted elk before. Not looking for your honey hole but......" Never fails. Congrats to you guys who were lucky enough to draw!

From: swampokie
19-Apr-19
I think all us nm app veterans should apply for unit 9 as first choice next year. Looks like all the unit 15 16 34 tags have been gobbled up by newbies as a third choice. Some not even sure which region the unit is in! LOL

From: spinedoc
19-Apr-19
I was pretty excited, for sure. I have never pulled a Western tag before this, so it's a pretty good feeling after years of waiting. Now starts the thinking, planning and map searching! My PA whitetail rig should be up to the task, although I will try to convince better half that my 05 Switchback may be ready for an upgrade. I may have to take her along, which would be great. If anyone who hunted 15 in years past has any input, I'd be glad to hear it. This should be a great opportunity and I am in disbelief I got it. I was hoping one of my kids would get the Mulie tags in the youth draw, but hey, this works too!

From: butcherboy
19-Apr-19
What’s amazing is how many NR’s draw great tags with only 6%. I’m lucky to draw an elk tag once every 4-5 years. This makes 19 years without a deer tag!

From: LINK
19-Apr-19
Swampokie. I struck out on that tag. Lol. If it weren’t for bad luck I’d have none at all.

I’m no newbie, been hunting or trying to draw 16B since the early 90’s. This will be my 10th time drawing that tag, just been drawing on an 8 year cycle since USO sued N.M. We drew as a party of 3 NR unguided. Ready to get back in there to see if anything has changed since 2011.

From: elkhuntinut

No luck for me however my friend drew a Unit 15 Archery tag !!

Looks like I’ll be back again..
