    I just went with USO for a "once in a lifetime" tag in the Valle Vidal, NM. Got a 6x6 the first day, the guide really new his stuff, pretty impressive camp set-up, horses for retrieval, the works. My only problem was that they still haven't found my pictures, they sent me the wrong ones.
    The second guy in camp (also got his elk the first day, we were the only camp finishing that day) was on his 5th hunt with the outfitter and was very happy.

    Got my tag the first time around . Rifle, so no long distance shot. 80 yards, had to hurry, it was shoot now or put on the bayonet, it was coming straight for us through the trees.

    So is the Valle Vidal public or private? I have been looking at USO outfitters for years. They have a lot of land to hunt and they have been at it a long time. I used to love there TV show, don't know why they don't have it anymore. I have heard some bad stuff about them, but it might just be jealous locals?? There's 2 sides to every story. This is going to be a tough decision.

    The Valle Vidal is National Forrest land, all public. There are only 25 tags a year for the area, and a "once in a lifetime" tag at that (if you fail to harvest you're done, remember that if you think bow or muzzle loader might be easier to get). The problem in the VV is that there's one access road, and nearly all other roads are closed for motorized traffic. So unless you have an outfitter who knows where to go you're up for a lot of hiking (the area is 60 x 30 miles). NM gives 12% of their tags to outfitters for non-residents, so the tag might have better odds through and outfitter.
