NM160EMore Hunts from this outfitter

Hunt Description

Hunts are conducted on some of the top producing elk units New Mexico has to offer. Hunt the famed Gila Mountains on units 16A or 16D. This outfitter controls a couple landowner tags that allows you to skip over the drawing and take a tag when you are ready to hunt. These tags sell quickly each year so don't wait to secure your spot. Applications through the guided pool also improve your odds of drawing one of these coveted permits. Hunts on units 34 or 36 bordering the Mescalero Reservation are also available. Landowner tags can be acquired for these hunts as well. Unit 17 is an archery or muzzleloader only unit and landowner and drawing hunts can be booked for this trophy producing unit as well. This outfitter is also legally licensed to hunt the nearby units of 13, 15, 16C 16E and 37.

A newly built lodge is home base for hunts on units 13 and 17. Hunts in the Gila National Forest can also be based out of this lodge, but will require a drive each day. Alternate accommodations can be arranged for hunts in the 16A and 16D units if needed.

Bulls are typically bugling during the archery and early muzzleloader seasons. Every effort is made to bring the bulls within range before a shot is attempted. Some bugling can also occur on the earliest of the rifle dates but these are typically spot and stalk affairs. The guides with this outfitter know their areas well and work hard to provide a successful hunting experience.

Landowner tag options usually book quickly so it is encouraged that hunters book these spots early. We will assist with applications in the guided pool to improve the probability of being successful in the drawings.
