    NM 16D rifle guide

    I drew a new mexico 16D 2nd rifle hunt. I originally had planned on going diy, however I am starting to talk myself into using a guide.

    Elk hunting must haves

    I drew a coveted Missouri breaks bull tag with rifle. I have hunted elk quite a bit but mostly archery or cow tags also in the breaks. So I have a lot of gear, but a most of it is "middle" grade if you will. For example I have vortex diamondback binos which are great for $200 but if I spend...
