We have an extremely high success rate around 85% and run nearly 100% on shot opportunity  with a great chance at  300+ class bulls . Elk hunts will be conducted in units 34 and 36 in southeastern New Mexico which are listed by the state as quality hunt units. Season dates vary with weapon choice of archery, rifle or muzzleloader. These are draw hunts unless you purchase a unitwide landowner or ranch only tag, . Draw success rates vary by season and unit, but the odds are increased due to allocation of tags to outfitters applying hunters in the outfitter pool. Unit-wide private landowner authorizations and ranch only tags may be purchased if unsuccessful in the draw subject to availability. The hunt cost will be increased by the amount paid to the land owner but you won’t be dependent on the draw. These are 5 day hunts, except archery which is typically 6 days. Hunts can be priced for 2 hunters to 1 guide or 1 hunter per guide . I highly recommend the 1-1 option to give the best chance for success. If you choose the 2-1 option you will need to have your own hunting partner so we don't have to mix parties. New Mexico also offers a youth either-sex rifle hunt that gives the hunter a chance to hunt during the rut with a rifle and a mobility-impaired hunt in unit 34 that provides a very good opportunity to harvest an animal.

New mexico Quail 

 

  Wild Quail hunting over pointing dogs the way it was meant to be. All wild free range quail in the vast deserts and mountains in southeastern New Mexico. I am permitted through the BLM , Forest Service and state of NM to guide on millions of acres. I am continually scouting through the spring and summer and keeping up with rainfall amounts and timing in the areas we hunt. in addition we also have boots on the ground scouting during our big game sessons . Simply put  we will know the best areas to take you for a succesful and enjoyable hunt.

  

   We have an excellent population of wild quail most years. Hunts run from mid November through mid February. The terrain is relatively easy but hunters should be prepared for brush and cactus. Temperatures average from the mid 40's to mid 60's for highs; mornings are usually at or just below freezing. 

  

   Our hunts can be arranged as  guided only day hunts or we can provide meals and lodging if desired. Typically we book hunts as 2 day 2 person minimum and additonal  days and hunters can be added. With enough notice we will work to accomodate large groups as well.

   

   We provide the use of our seasoned wild quail dogs. These dogs only hunt wild quail and are very good at finding and handling wild quail as well as excellent retrievers. They constanly amaze me at their abilities to locate not only coveys and point singles but track down your cripples as well. Hunters are always welcome to bring their own dogs too.

 

   Hunters will be picked up around 6:00 am and we will usually hunt until around 4:00 pm.

 

  Our primary species is scaled quail but we do have areas with limited bobwhites and places we can go hunt for Mearns .

some Private land hunts may be available as well 

 Hunts can be combined with coyote hunts and dove and ducks during combined seasons.

Arizona Quail 

We also offer hunts in Arizona for a mixed bag of mearns/montezuma quail ,Gambels and scaled quail. Hunt dates are early Dec. - early Feb

We are offer a very high quality hunt on a private ranch in Texas.  The hunt area is about 90 minutes east of Lubbock. This ranch has received very limited hunting over the last 10 years and has developed to the point that we can offer a highly successful hunt for mature bucks. These are low fence free ranging deer. The uniqueness of this property allows us to offer a quality hunting experience. Expect to have the opportunity to harvest mature bucks in the 140-160 class with the potential to take bucks into the 170 class. We only take 4 hunters per year and we have had 100% success usually on the 1st day. The hunts will be conducted as two 3 1/2 day fully outfitted hunts with 2 hunters per hunt, or if a group of 4 wants to book we may consider doing one 5 1/2 day hunt. Hunts will take place  from November to late dec. We have multiple stands and feeders in place that will receive no hunting pressure prior to the first hunters arriving. In addition to the stands we will also glass and stalk, and rattling can be productive in this area as the buck to doe ratio is nearly 1 to 1. If desired, you also can harvest 1 doe and we do see  feral hogs on occasion. You will stay in very comfortable accommodations. Included in the hunt will be all meals, guiding, meat and trophy preparation. We can also assist in getting your meat and trophy to a qualified butcher and taxidermist if desired. You will not be disappointed with this hunt.
