I’m new to elk hunting, this will be my first time in September. I somehow got lucky and drew a 2nd archery elk tag in NM unit 34. Anyone have any tips or suggestions on where I should look in this unit. Like certain elevations or anything that might help. Thanks
I don't think u will have to look far. U got my tag u lucky dog
No need to look, just listen.
Many of the roads are in the bottom of the draws, and people don't like to hike uphill.
I've applied for that tag for many years and never drawn it. Congrats.
I've been there twice but it's been quite a few years now....you will love this hunt and were REALLY lucky to draw it!
lots and lots of elk. I was scouting last nite[in 34] saw lots of elk. some of the best elk hunting you'll get. you won't have to look too hard
Sorry lamb. You can't hunt those elk on the Rez ;)
trophyhill I didn't know the rez was in 34
The mescalero sits right between 34 and 36. Technically not part of either.
The rez is unit 35
I was being a wise guy. when I ride my mountain bike I can see into the rez
Driving to Cloudcroft from the casino one morning at about 2am, I'm guessing I saw at least 1000 elk on the Rez property. Bunch of wild horses too.

Those weren't wild horses. They have been trained like sheep dogs but keep elk on the Mescalero instead of herding sheep. :-)
