    GMU 16A-Heavy Smoke on western side

    So I just got back from my last opportunity to scout before my elk hunt and the western side of the unit is covered in smoke. When I arrived on Tuesday afternoon I noticed the smoke but the smell wasn't heavy..at first I thought this might be some continental drift from out of state, but as soon...

    Exploring NM opportunities for my AD Mil Son....

    It looks like he will likely be granted leave in mid-late December this year and I'm trying to put out some feelers in our home state of NM as to the possibility of maybe getting him a tag of some sort as he missed his regular hunting season, including a bull tag he drew but couldn't use. I...

    First time Bull Tag, game camera vandalized, culprit caught on film

    So I've been spamming up the Elk room with my amateurish questions and comments so I figure I might as well share the wealth and spill it on over to this forum for a bit.

    Novice NM Hunters looking for tips on how to NOT be "that guy"

    So my sons and I were lucky enough to draw first rifle in Unit 32 and we're really looking forward to it. I've been reading up all I can and it sounds like that unit gets quite a bit of pressure on (what sounds like) not a really large deer population so we're not expecting anything to be...

    Issues with public land access in NM

    So my sons and I have been lucky enough to pull deer tags in NM this year (specifically unit 32..i also got an elk tag in 34)... anyway, my middle son and I have spent the last few Fridays with ONX trying to ride the highways and byways of our county roads, trying to figure out our way to get...
