New Mexico, Colorado & Montana Elk
If you are pressed for time and need a somewhat easier hunt, this may be the best bet for you. Many of these areas are based on working cattle ranches. Four-wheel drives are used extensively for travel. Expect some horseback riding, as well as plenty of walking.
In New Mexico, a series of five-day hunts are available from early September through February. Hunt with bow, muzzleloader, or rifle. Management goals vary from area to area. Success runs from 50% to 95% on large bull elk, many scoring over 300 points. The higher the price, the higher the quality and success. Camps vary from fabulous lodges to cabins or tent camps.
