Hi everyone! First time post. A friend and I drew Pecos elk tags ( unit 45) Oct 12 to 16 hunt dates. I have hunted deer in Illinois for years, had an awesome black bear hunt in Wisconsin last year and have hunted deer and antelope in Wyoming, but never elk. 45 was my 3rd choice after studying the NM Mrs and am very excited to get after em.
I have been looking over my Pecos Wilderness map and feel kind of overwhelmed on where to start, so far as which TH to start at, how far to hike in to get away from other hunters, what elevation to begin looking, etc.
We plan to hike in on foot several miles and hunt out of a tent.
I notice a lot on the bow hunting side of it but not much on the Oct rifle hunt.
Any info is appreciated!
