Just 15 points, first time putting in for that unit. I just meant in general how long to get a chance to shoot a big bull in this great state.

12th season (11th bull) in New Mexico brought a great 5 day hunt. 15 minutes before sunrise spotted elk in the trees approaching an opening. Set up for a shot and spotted the bull, decent 6x6, 300 Wthrby mag, 180gr Nosler partition, 250yds.

Congrats Mike!!!
Happy to see your successes.
