First thread post for me here! Fellow Elk die hards, I drew a NM Unit 9 bow hunt for 1-15 SEP 13. I am hoping to gain any and all tips from anyone who knows the area or has hunted there for Elk in the past. I've contacted the local ranger and NM Dept of Game and Fish and those nice folks have provided me with some good insight, but I would also be greatful to learn from anything you might have to offer as well. 160 other lucky souls drew an archery Elk tag for this Unit with me. Studying the maps, google, etc., it appears that there are many roads within Unit 9, very few water sources (mostly dry tanks) and I'm wondering how I might position myself to gain any advantages. Anyway, thank you much for reading and please respond if you have any info that might be of help. Shoot straight my friends!
