I would go from 13-23rd. I wouldn't be too concerned about muzzleloader season. I just feel like the first week of the season can be really hit or miss depending on how hot it is. I have always had my best luck right in the middle of the month. Thats also usually when I see the most rut activity.

The 8th-13th might be your best time based on how the full moon is shaking out.

Last week of the season, north facing slopes with cover, food, & water source, as far away from any motorized vehicle road/trail, in terrain only a fool would want to go. Hike in 6-7 miles, setup camp, then start putting the miles in everyday.....

......so I’ve been told.

Northern New Mexico seems to be just getting "good" as the archery hunt ends, around Sept. 25 or so. I am considering archery hunting the muzzleloader season there, but the season is shorter.

I want to hunt vocal elk!!!
