    For the biggest elk, and maybe the hardest to get tags, the Gila NF is the best - SW to W part of state along Arizona state line.

    X2 what SwampCat said. If you want better odds to draw, and less potential scoring, I’ve had opportunities in units near Chama and east of there.

    I really dont know how you go about doing it - but try to find a landowner with landowner tags.
