South central New Mexico is home to some of the states best elk hunting with units 34 & 36 leading the way. These units have been a consistent producers of quality bulls (300+) with truly giant bulls (370+) being taken every year. With bull/cow ratios at roughly 50:100 this area experiences a very intense rut for those that would want to archery hunt. The pure numbers of elk in these units unit also makes for excellent muzzleloader and rifle hunting as well. The landscape varies greatly from a desert floor up to pinon, juniper and oak brush canyons that give way to 8,500ft mountainous environments. These landscape changes only enhance the overall hunting experience in these areas.
Our outfitter has been hunting these units sice childhood. He and his guides continue to spend ten months a year scouring the hills to ensure that every client has the highest quality hunt possible. At times, particularly in unit 36, they do utilize horses to allow for access into the most remote portions of the unit and to retrieve harvested animals. Unit 34 hunters can expect to be staying in individual small cabins with en-suite baths and home cooked meals. Unit 36 hunters will typically stay in a larger cabin with all of the amenities of home. Depending on where the elk are located during pre-hunt scouting, a wall tent camp is sometimes utalized.
