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.

Dad and I filling our tags. He is a disabled hunter battling cancer, made this an incredible hunt what he was able to do. Many ups and downs but we had an amazing time.

Congrats Mike!!!
Happy to see your successes.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
