2009 Elk Information
We hunt on our ranch and the neighboring ranch in unit 12. As landowners in unit 12, the New Mexico Game and Fish Department has given us some lee way on managing our elk herds. This is a great plus for us and allows us to limit numbers of hunters.
We are in the heart of great elk genetics: East of the White Mountain Apache, West of the Acoma, South of the Zuni and just North of the Gila. Our prices are less than half the prices of the Indian reservations.
For 2009, we will be booking ten trophy elk hunts. Five day hunts, guided two on one only, will be $6500 each. We can expect to find bulls in the 300 to 390 class. Any bull scoring over 360 SCI points will have a trophy fee of $1,000. New Mexico Game and Fish Dept's new rules have greatly increased the size of the bulls we see and take. This also increases our lease fees. But, this is a quality hunt and taking only this number of bulls will keep the quality very high for years to come.
Opening day will be October 1, 2009. This is the heigth of the rut and this is a rifle hunt. Our opening day is ten days prior to public opening date. There will be no bow hunts on the ranch prior to the rifle hunt.
This is a great opportunity to take that big elk you've been wanting!
