Types Of Elk Hunts



Our 5 day rifle hunts begin in early October and run through early December. Typical success rate is 69% with an 80% shooting opportunity. Stand hunting is available but not optimally effective for hunting elk using a rifle. We recommend that hunters be ready for a high degree of physically activity when stalking and hunting trophy elk. Elk hunts can also traverse longer distances, so horses and mules may sometimes be used. In some cases, the shooting can be across deep canyons at fairly long distances. When rifle hunting elk, we recommend long-distance, high-caliber rifles such as a .300 mag.







Oct - NovMuzzleloader elk hunts also begin in early October and run through late November. Muzzleloader elk hunts last for seven days. Most of our muzzleloader hunts take place in "primitive weapon only" areas. These areas haven't heard a rifle shot in over 30 years. This hunting method treats the hunter to a more challenging, "old-school" hunting experience. While modern muzzleloaders have greatly improved range over traditional muzzleloaders of the past, they still present a more challenging hunt where patience and marksmanship ability will be the key to satisfying trophy kills.

Muzzleoader hunts have a 65% success rate with 87% shooting opportunity. On the earlier hunts, hunters can expect bugling bulls. Currently, our favored tactic is calling and what we refer to as"chasing bugles". During the later hunts, the bulls have moved into bachelor groups into their winter range which make spot and stalk hunting methods increasingly more effective at producing results. Stand hunting over water is also popular, weather conditions permitting.

New Mexico's muzzleloader restrictions are:

  • Must load through muzzle
  • Only black powder, pyrodex and/or equivalent substances.
  • Smokeless power is illegal.


SepArchery elk hunts run from September 1 - September 24. We offer 6 and 9 day hunts. Archery hunters enjoy the challenge of an archery hunt and see an average of 55% success rate with 87% shooting opportunity on mature bulls. Approximately 75% of the bulls harvested have qualified for the Pope & Young record book. We typically employ hunting methods such as spot and stalk, calling, stands over water, wallows and other proven techniques implemented by our expert guides. With over 30 years of experience hunting elk in and around the New Mexico Gila, we will assess the proper tactics for a hunt tailored to the goals of each individual hunter.

The typical archery shooting range is 20-35 yards. This close vantage point gives an "up close and personal" experience for these hunts. Depending on individual hunter ability, shots from 40 yards or greater have been attempted.

Mule / Coues Deer Hunts

Hunt Trophy Mule Deer/Coues Deer In New Mexico - Expert Guided Hunts

Our Mule Deer hunts take place in the New Mexico mountainous terrain of Rio Arriba county. This area is world famous for producing large, heavy-horned Rocky Mountain mule deer, one of Boone and Crockett's top producing counties. Our expert guides have developed a variety of methods for consistently putting these large bucks in front of our hunters for a perfect shot.  The rim rocky, shelf like terrain and road systems produce a very productive, low physically demanding hunt.  These elevated rims create the perfect glassing locations for finding deer all day. Because the rut is in December, these deer are typically not traveling much and are in bachelor groups or right in the break-up stage.

New Mexico Professional Big Game Hunting Inc. has consistently produced an average success rate of nearly 70% on top end muley bucks.

Our Coues Whitetail Deer hunts take place in the extremely rugged western slopes of the Gila mountains.  Due to the ruggedness of this country, it lends itself to growing the older age class deer that we are hunting.  Our hunters typically enjoy 100% shooting opportunity at 90+" deer; 100″ - 110+" is not out of the question.  Our guides have the skills, knowledge, and optic power to consistently locate these ghost like deer in any conditions.  A large buck will typically be between 100-130 pounds standing about 30″ tall at the shoulder.  This desert whitetail subspecies can only be obtained in southwestern New Mexico, Arizona, and Sonora, Mexico. This makes this hunt a safe, local, and affordable destination for a very isolated species.
