    My email is donnie6731@aol.com. area 50, 51 and 52 are great for elk hunting. I have taken 3 out of 50, 2 out of 51 and 8 out of 52. Unit 6 is also great on the North side of what used to be the Baca Ranch which is now called the Valles Calderas. I have taked some nice bulls over there as well. You should do very well in area 51, but watch out for them UFO's. I do taxidermy on the side and build hot rods. Just recently took first place at the supernationals in Albuquerque and best engine. My boss hunts 51 all the time and gets one everytime he goes up there. Where are you from? Some guys come from much lower elevations and have a hard time walking the mountains. It's not that there out of shape, it is the elevation that gets them. Good luck on your hunt and by the way, did you get a bull tag or a cow?

    Im from northern oklahoma, we are on a cow hunt this year. I am into cars as well, working on a 1966 chevy II. I would love to be hunting a bull but cow hunting will be fun too. Any advise for my scouting trip? We are going to look at the north central part of the unit to start out. looks to run around 9000 ft.
    we are going to be tent camping in november.
