New Mexico is known for both population and quality of elk. Deadwood Mountain Outfitters offer hunts in several areas of the state, so we are able to to offer several options for the hunter/client. We have different levels of hunts also, from fully guided and outfitted to a 2-day semi-guided hunt. On the semi-guided hunt we will guide you for 2 days after which you may continue the remainder of your hunt on your own. These hunts include our outfitter number to help in applying for the draw. Statewide on our elk hunts, we use areas that accessible by road, with local travel by foot or horseback. Some of our clients use ATVS on the main roads to get from camp to their hunting areas, (before doing this, you must first register your ATV with either your state or New Mexico). With off road travel not permitted in the areas we use by law. Pack horses are used for all game retrieval.
We offer Hunts statewide for Mule Deer, so whether you prefer Rifle, Muzzleloader, or Archery we have areas that will provide you a chance to forfill your hunt. One area we have hunted is Unit 2b of northern New Mexico known as the Carraccas Mesa. This area in Rio Arriba county is one of the most sought after areas in the west, and is known for producing trophy deer every year. The Carraccas has given up many deer for us over the past 20 years we have hunted there, with several trophies over 30 inches. Although we can't guarantee a 30 incher for every hunter, the challange, experience, and opportunity to harvest one of these true trophies bring many of our clients back year after year.
Pronghorn Antelope hunts in our primary areas are muzzleloader and archery hunts. This hunt may be a little more challenging than other pronghorn hunts we offer, but more rewarding too. We offer this as a guided hunt, sometimes on horseback due to the terrain and timber. Using horses seems to make the skittish antelope a little less wary than the traditional spot and stalk methods. The area we hunt has a good number of bucks in the 80-inch plus range, making this a satisfying hunt for the experienced antelope hunter or the first timer. We also offer rifle hunts for antelope in other areas of New Mexico, where we favor the traditional spot and stalk methods. These areas are more open plains where good optics are essential. Whether it’s muzzleloader, rifle or archery we have the hunt that will make for a very enjoyable experience. Landowner tags for antelope are available for the muzzleloader hunts.
New Mexico is a state known for many different species of big game animals. Merriam Turkeys are usually not one of those frequently talked about, however New Mexico has many location and opportunities during the spring to havest one of these georgeous birds. We have access to many areas where there are plenty of wise old gobblers to fill your grand slam or just to fill your tag for the year. Also have land in Texas where we can pursue Rio Grande Turkeys. Texas is known for an overabundance of these birds. Once you have filled your turkey tags, get your bow or gun out and lets go after a few wild hogs! We are going to start to offer turkey hunts in Virginia for wise Eastern birds. With many tracks of private land in areas we have hunted in the past we are sure to find an old bird or two that will put your turkey hunting skills to the test. So if it is Eastern, Merriams, or Rios your looking for, contact us for more info to set up your next Turkey Hunting Adventure.
From late spring throughout the summer we offer pack-in trips into some of northern New Mexicos' most scenic areas. On these high country getaways, we have numerous activities for both a family on vacation or the couple trying to get away from the crowds for the weekend. With these adventures you could take a hike into a high meadow to photograph the wildlife that live in area, or climb out onto a rock outcropping to get that special picture of one of the many views that the mountains offer. If hiking is not for you, lets saddle up horses for the day or half-day trail ride into the back country where we can look for some of the many shed antlers the elk and deer loose on their spring migration back into the high country. Fishing your thing? With numerous small lakes and streams full of trout ready to stretch your line, you could spend a day or more trying to catch these hard fighting fish. And after a full days adventure, come on back to camp,sit up next to the fire, relax and enjoy your time here in the Land of Enchantment. As you can see there are many things to do, and if you have a special interest, including ATV rides, we will do everything possible to forfill your request to make this your vacation of a lifetime.
