Zone H regulates hunting opportunities for cougar in New Mexico and covers 9,257 square miles. Public lands comprise 6,789 square miles (74%) of the total land covered by this game management unit. The greater region is best serviced by Las Cruces, Alamogordo, and Bosque Del Apache. The elevation of the region ranges from a low of 3,800 feet to a high of 11,600 feet above sea level. Wildfires have burned nearly 45 acres here in the last two years, providing opportunities for new vegetation and attracting a variety of wildlife. There are 6 trailheads that provide public gateways to these wilderness areas: Bosque del Apache (Indian Well Unit) Wilderness, Bosque del Apache (Little San Pascual Unit) Wilderness. Additionally, 3 sites are open to the public for access to managed private lands.
