Elk Hunting New Mexico Gear

Having the correct gear can either make or break your New Mexico Elk Hunting trip. There are a couple different types of hunters when talking about gear. One hunter is worry prone and tries to pack everything including the kitchen sink into his pack. This hunter packs so much gear he is no longer mobile and able to get up and down the terrain. On the other hand you have the hunter that thinks nothing could go wrong. He will be back at the vehicle by dark and needs nothing but his weapon. Both examples are wrong. Balance is key to having successful hunts. You need to have enough gear for the elements and terrain you are hunting, as well as have safety gear in case of an emergency.

There is no set list you should or should not follow while preparing for your hunt. You know yourself better than anyone else does, so pack according to your needs. Here is a list that can help you get started on packing for your next adventure.
