Mule Deer and Whitetail Hunting
We hunt mule deer on private ranches. We have over 15,000 acres leased in Southeast, NM. It has taken me many years to put together the quality private land hunts I now offer.
Elevations in our hunt areas range from 6500 to more than 9000 feet, with the terrain being rugged so it is helpful to be in good physical condition. We take bucks 25" and larger every year and you can purchase your license after you arrive. We have mule deer hunts for the bowhunter, rifle hunter and muzzleloader.
Mule Deer Archery (September - January)
This 5-day hunt is on private land with the January hunt being during the rut. Hunting methods are spot and stalk as well as ground blinds near water sources. This is a great chance to take a Pope and Young buck.
Rifle Mule Deer (October - November)
We offer two five-day hunts. This hunt has had over 90% success. Bucks in the 22 to 25 inche range are taken every year. Hunters stay in camphouse on the ranch. We access the hunting area using 4-wheel drives and on foot. License is available over the counter.
New Mexico is known for trophy elk. The area I hunt constantly produces trophy bulls. Elk tags are available by applying before March 20th. I will assist with application process. Some private landowner tags are sometimes available after the drawing.
Archery Elk (September)
This 6-day hunt is one of my favorite hunts. The bulls are usually bugling and there is a lot of action. Hunting methods include calling set ups as well as still-hunting around trails and water holes. I have taken several trophy 6x6 bulls when there was no bugling going on - that's when a real elk guide can make the difference. This hunt is from a tent camp set up in the hunting area.
Muzzleloader Elk (October)
This 5-day hunt is one of our best and usually occurs during the rut. We have taken bulls scoring up to 370 on this hunt. In line muzzleloaders are legal. We hunt from a heated tent camp, which I will set up close to the area we will be hunting.
Rifle Elk (October)
This 5-day hunt is one of our most successful hunts. The bulls are sometimes still bugling and the extended range of a rifle make it easier to take a trophy bull. We will stay in a heated tent camp in the hunting area.
