New Mexico Big Game Unit 6B -
posted 1 year ago
370 is definitely plausible in this unit at gross! The hardest part of this unit is the sheer number of elk in it. You're talking a bull to cow ratio that is almost 2:1 and with a herd of 3,000 elk not pressured you will see A LOT of bulls. With that said, there are some 370+ class bulls in this unit with 340-360 a bit more prevalent. The genetics definitely are not there like the Gila but due to the lack of harvesting on this unit some bulls get lucky genetics and will move into your 370+ range. It's definitely hard to not shoot that 20th 320 bull in bow range just after 7 days, I know personally after my hunt.
I personally hunted this area and harvested a great elk (message for details if you draw) and my question before I respond is if goHunt uses gross or net on trophy potential, thanks.

Do any of the leftover licenses with 4 or fewer take your points if purchased?
Mason, I drew this tag as a NR as well but for first archery. Maybe you and I can pool up ideas on the hunt as I'll be going for different dates but seem to be in the same boat as non-residents. Yes you are allowed a max of 6, the NPS site is correct, I've called them quite a bit thus far to clarify rules, and boy there are a lot!
