There was a hunting show on youtube that I watched when the Fierce Firearms post was going on and they killed a big 5x5 on the Mescalero Ranch in NM which is on the crow reservation if I'm not mistaken.  I've seen quite a few hunts on the Mescalero Ranch and they appear to have a healthy elk population with big bulls.   :dunno: :dunno:

Hate paying the tribe money. Iíve researched a couple New Mexico unit but didnít draw :(. The units in Idaho snd Oregon just donít produce 5x5s. There use to be a stud 5x5 and silver dollar casino in Montana that came out of that area I need to research some more. 15 years ago we all begged for a big 6

I've shot a few elk....but all cows with the exception of a yearling bull when I was 9 or 10.  We didn't know he was a bull till we rolled him over and saw he had nuts. 

I am still hoping to kill a nice bull....  Multiple big bulls withing 30 yards while bow hunting, but no tag so they go to walk.   :bash: :bash:  I would gladly pay for an out of state tag or guide...but the cost is just as much as moose hunting in Canada, and I would rather kill bull moose.  One of these days....

Good luck in your search for the big 5x5.  I will being living vicariously though this post, hoping for pictures.   :tup: :tup:

I've seen some big beautiful 5s with giant whale tails in the Gila in NM...but sounds like you're already applying there.

Apache I believe.  Amazing country up there.  That tribe knows what they are doing - trophy Elk, amazing turkey, Top notch resort (Inn of the Mountain Gods)

I saw a stud Rosie 5x5 about 6 years back while archery hunting. Dark-dark antlers with white tips! He was impressive. I'll always remember that rack as he grab his cows and left me behind lol!

I spent a few days looking for a 160 type giant fork last year, tag holder was going to shoot it over a 185 type buck

Hopefully he made the winter and we will be able to hunt him again this year
