Most Common Question People Have:  

Where should I put in for a great elk hunt?



In the Northeast Area, it depends on the type of hunt you want.   If you want to pack into the wilderness, pick units 44/ 45 in the Pecos Wilderness or unit 53 and hunt the Wheeler or Latir wilderness.   If you like to drive to a canyon and park and hike for the day, try units 51 and 52, where there is lots of good Forest Service roads.   And always, try for the Valle Vidal, it is New Mexico 's Yellowstone , absolutely fantastic elk hunting.
