New Mexico bound:)

Hi everyone!

Just got the news that I pulled a unit 13 New Mexico tag. I've never shot a muzzleloader before, but I ordered one from Gunwerks. Thought I'd start out in style...though I may need to find a second job! I was so impressed with my rifle that I figured their muzzleloaders must be awesome also. Does anyone know much about unit 13? I hear it is high desert. Not a lot of elk, but some big boys roaming around. I sure hope that I run into one!

Good luck to all on your upcoming hunts

    Go to the west edge, obviously, as close to the 16s and 15 as possible. Good luck!

    I have hunted that unit a few times... There are some monsters in there... I would look around Datil or Magdalena... That RMEF property was sold a few years ago so it will be hit and miss. You can't really hunt close to 15 or 16 because it is separated by the plains...

    Good clarification. My point is "there be NO monsters on the east side."
