New Mexico HUNT
Archery Bull Elk Hunts
Our New Mexico archery elk hunts takes place in September during the pre-rut through the middle stages of the rut. These hunts definitely present some of the best opportunities to kill the some of the biggest bulls in our areas. The bulls are typically very vocal during this period which can make for exciting and action packed hunts. In 2004 one of our archery hunters killed an incredible bull that gross scored 427″ P&Y and became the new New Mexico state record at the time. That record held until 2015 when another one of our archery hunters killed an unbelievable bull gross scoring 440″ P&Y. Both of these bulls are among the top ten non-typical bulls ever harvested in the world with a bow. Almost every year several of our archery hunters get opportunities at 400 class bulls but realistically hunters need to expect opportunities at 300-360″+ bulls on any of our archery hunts. These hunts all take place in high desert terrain at approximately 7500′ elevation with Pinion and Juniper vegetation. These hunts are not extremely physically demanding and are probably some of the easiest areas to hunt elk in the country.
In Unit 12 we offer both public and private land archery elk hunts. Our public land hunts are obtained through the draw process or by purchasing a “unit wide” landowner tag. Our private ranch hunts are obtained by purchasing one of our guaranteed “ranch only” landowner permits. We also offer public land archery hunts in Unit 13. These may be obtained through the draw process, or by purchasing a “unit wide” landowner permit. We offer 6 day hunts that can also be extended up to 14 days during certain seasons. Hunters with disabilities should contact the New Mexico Game and Fish Department regarding obtaining a Mobility Impaired Certification Application to use a crossbow during archery season.
All meals and lodging are included and hunters get to enjoy comfortable lodge style accommodations on these hunts. Guests are welcome for an additional fee. Hunters are responsible for flying to Albuquerque, New Mexico the day prior to the start date of their hunt and driving to our Pie Town lodge.
