Does anyone have any info on unit 16e for archery elk hunts in September here in NM. Is there decent numbers of elk? Does anyone have any info on the unit from last year or two. All the info I can find on it is years old.

Elk there. Unit is checker boarded but not too bad. Take a look at harvest rates on G and F site. I believe in 2018 they were dismal. 2019 harvest rates are probably not out yet.

The 1st hunt can be very hot 70-80°. 2nd hunt can also be very hot making some long quite days. There are some areas that hold a decent amount of bulls. We had to spike in about 3 miles to get close to where we located some elk. Dry unit so plan a added trip to pack water in. Also outfitters hunt the private pretty hard so find bedding above private land water works great. Good hunt if you like spiking and a physical challenge.

16e is a different kinda hunting. Lots.of open grassy areas. If u go into luera better have a atv the only road In will kill a vehicle. Also can't camp.on state land. If u hunt westside of unit u can camp anywhere pretty much. Hunted there couple times
