    Wonder if any members have used a guide service in central to northern New Mexico for elk hunting in the past 2 years?? Have done some web searches and sent emails but no responses yet. The sites all claim to have the biggest and most of everything (some of the guides names are on multiple sites??) but to be entirely fair, some of the sites did post hunter success rates of less than 60% so some may be honest.
    Any names/numbers, URLs/comments, sincerely appreciated.

    Mike ,Sadly big money men have bought up thousands upon thousands of acres of hunting rights here ,and many are owned by the same corperations. I used to hunt in the Black Lake area between Taose and Ojo-Caliente,but Havent had the time or luck of drawing for the past 15 yrs. I cant advise on an outfitter ,but I would suggest trying one of the public drawings for the quality hunt areas ,like Chama .
