Rifle: October – December
Southern New Mexico offers some of the finest elk hunting in the West and this outfitter has been hosting hunters for many years with great success. This property is home to a very healthy population of elk. The property is lightly hunted, often times, only taking a couple of hunters at a time. This is to ensure that all of our hunters have an opportunity for success. The area is home to an abundance of elk, especially later in the season. A nice blend of timber and open meadows and an abundance of water is the perfect recipe for holding lots of elk. Spot and stalk, glassing, and calling is the method of hunting. We’ve had a very high success rate the past several seasons. Your hunt can be customized to meet a wide range of physical requirements – easy access flatlands, as well as invigorating mountains and canyons are abundant throughout these beautiful properties. The accommodations, located close the ranch, are in a great lodge with all of the comforts of home including electricity, hot and cold running water, satellite tv and even wireless internet. No need to worry about drawing a tag as a guaranteed landowner is all included in the hunt price. Just show up and hunt!
