    Does anyone hunt or has hunt Elk in New Mexico? Been thinking about putting in for a draw. But I have absolutely no insight on NM hunting.

    Any info, help or experience would be much appreciated.

    Nevermind.... It seems NM fish&game only allow 6% of draw licenses are awarded to nonresidents applying without a New Mexico registered outfitter. That is a very small percentage.

    I haven’t hunted there but was told from NM taxidermist that non resident Elk and Pronghorn are pretty easy to get. If you want to drive further Oregon has Guaranteed Outfiter tags for Elk and Deer. A little pricey but afforadable.

    And don't forget to add the draw signup deadline in your phone calendar.
