Elk hunting in New Mexico

Elk hunting in New Mexico ({{totalToursString}})

New Mexico has a reputation for offering some biggest elk trophies in North America, and has the third largest elk herd (about 80,000 animals). Non-resident hunters can get OTC tags through the landowner preference program or the guaranteed outfitters’ tags program. Chances of drawing a non-resident tag for a DIY hunt are low, given that only 6% of all tags are allowed for non-residents, and for the most popular areas such as the Valles Caldera natural reserve, even residents’ chances are slim. An outfitted hunt is therefore the way to go if you want to hunt elk in New Mexico, but the price for a prime time hunt with tag included may rise above $10,000. The Valles Caldera, National Forests in Northern New Mexico and the highly acclaimed Gila of Southwestern New Mexico offer some good elk habitat for a public land hunter. Unit 34 has a great reputation, yet, even for this unit landowners tags may be available, and units 13, 15, 16a, 16b, 16d, 16e, and 17 are also in high esteem. The best time to hunt is the rut, that usually begins in September, and is mostly covered by the archery season. The first weeks of the rifle season, that begins about October 7, and the muzzleloader season, that falls between the archery and the rifle seasons, are also good, as you may still see some bugling activity.

Looking for best hunting trips for You...

Why do I see different types of prices?
There are two types of hunts on our platform: Package Hunts and Customizable Hunts. Package Hunts are fixed offers. Customizable Hunts usually allow you to select species and other parameters (number of hunters and guests, etc.) and then you can see the final price of your hunt.

"Package price" tag - this price tag is shown for package hunts, and it's a final price for an offer.

"Price from" tag - we show this tag for customizable hunts either when you search for particular species or when there is only one type of species in an offer. In both cases we include the minimum trophy fee available for this type of animal. It means that you see the final price of the offer, but you can also customize it (e.g. you can include a bigger trophy into your hunt).

"Daily rate fee" tag - this price does NOT include trophy fee. For example, if you are searching for a destination and we can't figure out the species you want, then we show this tag. You will need to include trophies from a hunt page.

Rifle & Muzzleloader Elk Hunt 1x1 New Mexico, United States

Our elk hunts take place in the highly acclaimed Gila of Southwestern New Mexico and surrounding areas of New Mexico and Arizona. Our 30 plus years of experience in these areas coupled with the exceptional genetics have enabled our clients to consistently enjoy success rates second to none on world class bulls. Most of the terrain we hunt is not extremely steep even though elevations range from 6000-9000 feet. Muzzleloader elk hunts are two 5-days hunts in mid-October and one 5 day hunt during the third week of November. Most of our muzzleloader hunts take place in primitive weapon only areas that haven't been rifle hunted in some 30 years. Our muzzleloader hunters have enjoyed an average of 53% success rate with 84% shooting opportunity. On the earlier hunts, hunters can expect bugling bulls. At this time, we rely heavily on calling and what we refer to as“chasing bugles”. Our rifle hunts also begin in early October and run through early December. These hunts are five days. Our rifle hunters have enjoyed an average of 69% success rate with 80% shooting opportunity. Stand hunting is not near as effective on rifle hunts, requiring more physical ability from the hunter. Horses and mules may sometimes be used. In some cases, the shooting can be across deep canyons at fairly long distances.
