Chama New Mexico Dec Elk

I was able to secure a private landowner tag for Chama NM, not sure of the unit or anything but hoping to redeem my bad luck on my CO hunt. Anyone hunt that area of NM and have any advice on late season elk???

Going with an outfitter or by yourself?

Do you have private land access, or not?

Which outfitter? Usually I find that they pick which ranch you'll go on which day.

Pray for snow. Lots of it. Then pray for more.
I was there a year ago when it was 30 at night, 50 during the day, and no snow worth mentioning. As a result the elk weren't pushed off the mountains so we never saw one. At this time of year your success will depend on the herds being pushed down as well as lots of luck if they're not.

Per the webcams, I don't see any appreciable snow there now...
