Bottom line is what, if I want to hunt elk this fall in NM ? Public draw ? Hire an outfitter ? Where are my best odds ?

For public tags:

If you donít have the time to learn how the draw works- pay a tag consultant and they can walk you through the process and apply for you. Premium tags (good units) have very low draw odds- think < 3% chance. Success rates arenít fantastic on public ground.

For private land:
There are non-draw outfitted options. These are expensive, but surpass the logistics of draw hunts.

Its freakin federal land. You can see the trend, at some point it will be 99% new mexico residents and 1% non-residents. Like I said their asinine rules will only increase poaching.
I guess I have never heard of any New Mexicans suggesting they want a 99% share. Little dramatic donít you think? You as a non resident have drawn just as many times as me with elk and I have been a resident for 27 years.

I will say, Texans helped drive those prices up substantially. If guys donít mind paying 2-3k for a whitetail hunt, they have zero issues with paying 1k for a cow elk.
