    Unit 45 - 2nd Season Rifle Hunt

    Hello all! New to the forum here.. Quick question to the group.. I was drawn last week for a 2nd season elk tag (rifle). Never hunted in unit 45, I have browsed some older topics I the forums on the Pecos Wilderness, but they were about 5 years old. Any advice, tips, or suggestions of this unit would be greatly appreciated. Anyone know anything about the Jicarita Peak area??

    I have the same tag for the 1st season. I also have never hunted the unit. Are you backpacking or doing a drop camp?

    Another hunter got lost in the Pecos on Day #2.. Helicopters, search and rescue teams in every trail going in, blowing whistles, etc, etc.. Needless to say, that was the end of my hunt. Good unit though. When I draw 45 the next time, the locals told me to hunt around Elk Mountain during mid-Oct.. The elk are making their way east out of the high country..
