Location:
Method:
Rifle, Muzzleloader
Dates:

Late September- Early October

New Mexico continues to lead the West in youth elk hunting opportunities. Each year, youths (17 & under), are eligible to draw youth only licenses. Not only do these hunts take place in some of the state’s best units, they also have season dates that often coincide with the peak of the rut. Draw odds can be up to five-times better on youth only tags compared to adult licenses.

Youth only hunts take place in units spread out across the state, although we at WTA TAGS, focus primarily on units such as the Valle Vidal, 34, 15, 17, 16C and 16E. These hunts have produced giant bulls and overall great hunting experiences for our youth applicants over the last fifteen years. It is virtually impossible for a kid to go on one of these hunts and not become addicted to elk hunting.

Many of the hunts will utilize lodges or RV style camps with terrain varying from traditional mountainous elk habitat to rolling hills covered in pinon and juniper trees. For those looking for a true adventure a number of wilderness style hunts utilizing horses and wall tent camps do exist.

The outfitters we work with for the youth-only hunts are fathers and grandfathers whom excel at providing a safe, family friendly, high quality hunting experience that only furthers a child’s love for the outdoors.

Youth only elk tags are limited to rifle and muzzleloader. Scopes and pelletized powder are legal to use in muzzleloaders.

WTA TAGS values our outdoor heritage and the future of hunting so much so that we offer free application and float services to all youth hunters (18 & Under). To be clear, TAGS will apply and front the $760 license fee required at the time of application, the only cost incurred will be the $13 state application fee.

If you have questions regarding this hunt, have drawn a tag and now wish to locate the right outfitter, or would like assistance applying in the New Mexico youth only elk draw- please contact WTA TAGS at 1-800-755-TAGS(8247) or email us at [email protected]
