April – May
This Merriam’s turkey hunt takes place in the Sacramento Mountains of southern New Mexico on several thousand private acres. This area holds a strong population of true Merriam’s turkeys. It’s a very unique part of the state in that it’s comprised of an abundance of timber, open mesas, and areas of cedar flats. Bottom line is that this country sets up well for calling in a big long beard! A very comfortable hunting lodge with satellite TV and all of the amenities of home is all included. The accommodations take place in a restored 19th century ranch house that has all of the comforts of home including electricity, hot and cold running water, and wireless internet. The lodge features six guest rooms (2 with private baths) and six full bathrooms. We only take four hunters at a time so call now! #265
