This is a highly regarded Unit. Unit 36 in New Mexico is known as a highly competitive Draw Unit because it shares space with the famous Mescalero Apache Reservation and their well known Mature Bulls. The Apache Nation manages their Elk herds with science, tradition and extreme discretion.
In Unit 36 we have Private Ranches for you to hunt that are within sight of the Apache Nation. These ranches strategically sit between river water and canyon cover. New Mexico and the SW have been extremely dry the past few years, water is a premium for wild game and domestic animals.
In 2020 we had a 100% kill, in 2021 we had 80% kill and in 2022 we had 100% kill success on these ranches! Years past have seen 90% Shot Opportunities as well.
These dates also represent you or your small party’s (2 or 3) Exclusive time on these Ranches NO OTHER hunters will be booked for those dates. Terrain is well suited for glassing, and spot and stalk, but when the time comes, be prepared for hikes with fairly steep elevation changes of approximately 1,000′. The base elevation for the area is 6,500′

Meals and lodging are NOT included in any hunt price. When a hunt is booked, we will send a list of area motels, restaurants and Airbnb’s in the area for you to choose from.
All hunts include a highly sought after private landowner elk permit to GUARANTEE the purchase of your state hunting license (no drawing) for an additional cost of $548.00
