New Mex Unit 15 Elk mzl

I just got an email from New Mexico Game & Fish...
I drew unit 15 - 1st muzzleloader elk!!!

I've never been there... On the fence if I should take my packgoats, or hire an Outfitter.... Never killed an elk either. I guess that all depends on what kind of info I can dig up...
Anyone have any input?

Congrats on drawing a NM elk hunt. I drew elk in 51, deer in 37, and barbary sheep. What a great day! If you got livestock to pack out animals than thats the best way to go. I do not ever favor using outfitters, I think the best way to elk hunt is to go out and figure it out. Unit 15 is thick country, very good for muzzle loader. Talk to local game wardens on where to go, they are always giving helpful info. Good luck

I drew the second archery hunt in unit 15. I haven't hunted there but I don't live too far from there. I will be doing a lot of scouting over the next few months. My hunt is Sept 11-18. I will fill you in on the scouting and hunt as time goes along.

I also drew a mature buck antelope tag for rifle in the unit just south of unit 15. I couldn't believe that I drew that as there are only 20 tags given out for that hunt.
