WTA has secured a guaranteed tag to hunt Desert sheep in the state of New Mexico. This coveted private land trophy Desert sheep hunt takes place on a well known private ranch. The ranch is located in South Central NM and encompasses over 350,000 acres of the Fra Cristobal Mountains. This mountain range is home to a resident herd of Desert sheep that averages 250 head.
This hunt is fully guided by a seasoned outfitter who has been offering these private land hunts since 2012 with great success on trophy rams from 160 inches to over 170 inches. Year to year, they work very hard to harvest the most outstanding mature rams on the property. All hunts include 1×1 experienced guides, accommodations and in-field transportation. Hunts are 10 days in duration and conducted by spot and stalk and glassing. The ranch has good road access to the expansive rough mountain range thus allowing hunters to access most hunt areas. This ranch receives four private land permit authorizations annually. Hunt dates alternate each year to provide quality and priority to each hunter. During each hunt there are a total of two sheep hunters on the ranch. The 2019 hunts dates to be determined.
Accommodations consist of a comfortable bunkhouse and cookhouse near the base of the mountain with home cooked meals served daily. This is one of the best priced guaranteed tag desert sheep hunts in the US. Give WTA a call today.
