Re: New Mexico Elk
Where in the Gila? I have deer hunted the north where the San Augustine plains drop in. Hunted deer around Lake Roberts down to Silver City. Backpacked in for a deer hunt in the wilderness. Been camping and fishing around Snow Lake. I have seen elk, deer, turkeys, bear, cougars, Mexican Grey wolves, and coues deer at some place in the Gila.
The Gila has the biggest bulls and biggest herd. Most of the record book animals have come from Catron and Socorro counties.
Basically I have told the wife and kids when I die I want to be cremated and have my ashes spread over the Gila Wilderness. So that should tell you what I think of the Gila.
