In addition to elk hunts, we offer Aoudad, mule deer, white-tailed deer, antelope, bear, and turkey hunts!
There are three ways to hunt elk in the state of New Mexico, and there are pros and cons to each.
Public Land Draw Hunts
The first is a draw hunt. In order to be able to hunt you must apply for, and draw, a tag through the limited draw system. It could take many years to draw a tag in a quality/high demand unit. If you are lucky enough to draw a tag, it is the least expensive way to hunt.
Unit Wide Hunts
The second is a unit wide landowner authorization. This type of hunt guarantees you the opportunity to hunt; however, these authorizations are often very expensive. In addition, you will be hunting on public lands and private property enrolled in the unit wide program. This means you could experience more hunting pressure.
Ranch Only Hunts
The final way is a ranch only authorization. These landowner authorizations are issued to landowners for exclusive use on the deeded acreage of the ranch. There are no public hunters allowed and, therefore, limited hunting pressure. Hunters are guaranteed a tag, which allows you to make plans around hectic and busy schedules. These authorizations also offer the hunter flexibility because there are no fixed dates for the hunts. These hunts can be conducted any five consecutive days from the opening day of season through the final day of season. Some of our ranches even allow for rifle hunts during the rut!!!
