Public Land Rifle, Bow, and Muzzleloader Hunts
These hunts are only offered in Game Management Units 10, 51, and 52. While unit 10 offers drop camps only during the bow season, all weapon types (rifle, muzzleloader, and bow) can be used in units 51 and 52. These hunts are designed for those hunters who are looking for a quality hunt, feel confident about hunting elk on their own, do not need a guide to accompany them in the field, and don’t want the hassle of having to bring and set up a camp.
The units that we hunt can be described as follows:
Unit 51 and Unit 52 are located in North Central New Mexico. Unit 52 is approximately 300,000 acres in size and Unit 51 is approximately 380,000 acres. Both of these units are in a roadless/wilderness area that prohibits off road vehicles and off road traffic of any type. The areas have numerous open roads within the unit, often two to three miles apart, which allows the hunter access to areas to hunt by foot. These units have an excellent elk population and the number of hunters is controlled, as opposed to Colorado’s public land units. The odds of drawing a license are excellent with the outfitter number. These units offer the hunter easy access, an excellent elk population, and limited hunting pressure. This is a public draw unit and it usually offers a very high opportunity to draw a license with the use of the outfitter number.
