New Mexico Rifle Elk Hunt


New Mexico Public Land


This is one of the finest hunting destinations in the West. The ranch boasts a 95% opportunity for Elk and Mule Deer. This location sits astride the historic migration route of the entire Southern Colorado-San Juan elk herd, making this perhaps the most extraordinary elk habitat in the Southwest. The ranch is comprised of 17,000 acres of rich alpine wilderness at the intersection of multiple ecosystems. Mountains, forests, meadows, lakes and streams attract a remarkable diversity of animals, and offer exceptional hunting opportunities for mule deer, bear, spring turkey, mountain lion and of course elk. This ranch is for those hunters who appreciate the heritage, resources and unmatched beauty of this grand and historic land. It offers world-class big game hunting, as well as many surrounding attractions, historic culture and shopping opportunities available nowhere else. It’s an opportunity for sportsmen from around the world to enjoy hunting at its fullest. The lodge is located just two hours north of Santa Fe, New Mexico in the legendary San Juan Mountains of northern New Mexico just west of Chama on Highway 64. With flight service to both Santa Fe and Albuquerque, and a private airstrip in Pagosa Springs, Colorado which is just 45 miles away, transportation to this ranch is easy. Of all the world’s great species of big game, nothing quite matches the American Elk. It is a grand and majestic creature, whose magnificent presence and autumn bugles are a constant reality here at this ranch. Four to six thousand wild elk migrate through the ranch each year. This makes for great hunting every week of the hunting season. Our hunters are continually astonished at the number of elk we have and we surpass expectations every season. Each hunt is five days long. There are six rifle elk hunt, three archery hunts, and two rifle elk/mule deer hunts currently scheduled between September and late November. The experienced guides will help you navigate the terrain and call in a bull of a lifetime! All elk hunts 2x1.
