New Mexico is without a doubt produces the biggest bull elks in the United States.

Some great areas in New Mexico are:

* Unit 15 in the Gila National Forest continually produces 400-class bulls.
* Units 34 and 36 in the Lincoln National forest.
* Unit 55 produces monster bulls and excellent rutting action.
* Unit 52 in the Carson National Forest.

Best chance of a royal plus bull : Nevada. BUT, its a lotto state be prepared to apply many times.
Best chance of scoring a tag in a good area : Arizona or Colorado.

I would say Colorado for three reasons.
1. No drawings for tags
2. I have family there.
3. Amazing looking state.
