The elk herds of New Mexico are thriving. Their numbers increase every year and so do the number of licenses available. The bulls in our area are renown for their huge racks.

The season opens with a September bowhunt, followed by October through December rifle hunts. The rut starts in September and we find bulls bugling through October. The late season hunts give us the opportunity to hunt with a good snow cover.

There are many excellent trophy bull areas on our vast public lands. Licenses are issued through a drawing. Most hunts are 100% draw. We can arrange a hunt for hunters that miss the drawing. Private land elk permits are available which guarantee a license.

New Mexico's mule deer are noted for their big racks in the record books. We hunt all of the prime trophy deer areas across northern New Mexico. DeerThe hunt area ranges from pinon and juniper forests to timberline. The season opens with the September bowhunt, followed by the muzzleloader season. The rifle seasons run from late October to mid November. The deer season closes with a January bowhunt.

New Mexico has some of the best trophy pronghorn hunting in the West! There is only one annual rifle season in each quadrant of the State and success is high. The best way for a nonresident outfitted hunter to get a license is through the draw. Licenses are available for rifle, archery and muzzleloader hunts. AntelopePrivate land antelope licenses are available for hunters that miss the draw.

Spring turkey hunts run from mid April to mid May. We hunt public lands and some private ranches for Merriam gobblers. Calling in your gobbler with an experienced guide guarantees an exciting hunt.

Bison hunts are available year round on private ranches. Massive trophy bulls and smaller meat bulls are available.

I am a dedicated bowhunter and so are my guides. We offer bowhunts for all species.

The September Elk Bowhunt is our specialty. We hunt trophy bulls with high success. It is a thrill to be within bow range of a bugling bull. Mule deer can be hunted at the same time as elk.

An excellent time to get in range of a trophy mule deer buck is during the January bow season.

The antelope bowhunt is in August. Licenses must be applied for by the April deadline.
