    Unit 45 Pecos Wilderness

    Hi All, Got drawn for the muzzleloader elk hunt in New Mexico 45. Wondering if anyone else got drawn or is going for the bowhunt. Any scouting reports or other helpful info would be greatly appreciated. Will be in the Peco Wilderness area trying to get my first elk. Thanks in advance.

    Check your messages, I sent you a PM. Btw, you know anything about unit 67 for Antelope or unit 38 for Elk in Wyoming?

    One last thing, 1 post since Sept 2011?????? You gotta get more involved here.

    Good luck, hunt hard but hunt safe

    Hi Jay,

    Yeah, I was fortunate enough to draw last year as well, but didn't end up harvesting anything on my first elk hunt. It was a great trip with my bro and Dad and am really excited to go back. We stayed on HM last year in a drop camp, but we are thinking we want to go in farther this year. What a great time of year to be out in the mountains for us flat landers!?! We will be on foot once we set up base camp. Feel free to PM if you would rather.

    NoMoreOldNo7--Thanks for the PM. Sorry no help on Wyoming at all, but if you need any advice on any whitetails in MN, I am your guy!

    Thanks
    Chris

    Doesn't look like finding elk should be a problem, saw large groups of 50 or so cows, calves and spikes in several different drainages. The bigger bulls were of course off by themselves in groups of 3-5 but it looks like antler growth is excellent. Right now most of the elk I saw were near or above timberline, our challenge was to find salting sites for the bighorn that the elk wouldn't destroy immediately. Have another loop to make salting the northern part but I suspect it will be the same...lots of elk in high ground at or above timberline. Click image for larger version.
