    NM allow sabots and pelleted powder (as well as scopes). the Moose hunt is any weapon, so I believe anything goes there as long as i meet the caliber requirements (which .50 cal does).

    Wondering if anyone has general thoughts on these three units for a late, controlled elk hunt. I have done the research and know a bit about each of these. 46 certainly seems to be the one that...

    I would steer clear of 102. I don't think it is all that it is cracked up to be. You are going to have a better hunt in 87 or I might even suggest 89. You might also want to look at the late hunt...

    410 is a solid unit, but perhaps not what it was once. Lots of elk find their way onto the private land, but for those willing to work, there are plenty of elk on public. Don't be afraid to look...
