Other Information:

Our ranch is made up of over 15,000 acres of private prime wildlife habitat and 22,000 acres State Trust Land. Our private land is the result of 35 years of settlers choosing the best of the best land for their homestead, the balance was deeded to the State, in Trust for the Schools and the Hospitals of New Mexico. Every acre of our private land receives the highest Elk Habitat rating the New Mexico Game and Fish gives and is in the "elk core area". As such, all of our hunts are guaranteed land owner tags through New Mexico's Elk Private Lands Use System.  We are "ranch only"  private use only, meaning only hunters who have purchased their hunt through us directly have the right to hunt our private land.
