Default New Mexico Elk - Live hunt 2018

We are back at the ranch we hunted for many years in Northern NM. Just two of us this year.....Myself and Richie (from my previous live thread in CO). Gonna really try and get Richie a decent bull. Bulls are typically sounding off by labor day and the ranch hand said he saw some big boys this morning in a group. We are hunting 8 days and the season starts Saturday.

Its just an awesome place and have had some great hunts here over the years with good live hunt coverage. So I hope you enjoy it as much as we will.
