Apply for Multiple Species

When we plan your New Mexico big game applications, you can opt to apply for any or all species – elk, deer, antelope, oryx, Barbary sheep and bighorn sheep. New Mexico will charge you for the full cost of the license upfront. Then, all but a processing fee will be refunded if you are unsuccessful.

By applying for more than one species, you can increase your chances of coming to hunt with us this year. Any one of these hunts will be a memorable experience!

Sign up for our New Mexico Slam & Plan

We offer a unique New Mexico Slam & Plan program that includes applying for Elk, Antelope, Barbary Sheep, Oryx, Ibex and Mule deer. With a $750 deposit, we apply you for all six species under our outfitter number, which in most cases will at least double your draw odds. We guarantee that you’ll end up with at least 1 tag your first year – by applying for six species with a licensed outfitter, there’s a great chance you’ll draw a tag the first year. And if you don’t draw a tag, we will ensure you go hunting with a guaranteed landowner tag.

What’s more, when you sign up for our New Mexico Slam & Plan, you’ll get $1,000 off each guided service. And with species that can be hunted year-round in New Mexico, you can enjoy hunting outside of the typical fall hunting seasons.

To learn more or to sign up, please call or text us at 575-517-6083.

Apply for a FREE Guided Bighorn Sheep Hunt

This year, we’re offering applicants a free, fully guided bighorn sheep hunt for applying with LOH Outfitters! Apply with us for a Rocky Mountain or desert big horn sheep tag. If you get lucky and draw the license, we’ll take you on a 10-day guided sheep hunt, valued at $11,749.

To learn more about this incredible opportunity, please visit our Sheep Hunting Page. Or, call or text us at 575-517-6083 to get signed up.

What If I Don’t Draw a License?

The results of the big game draw will be released at the end of April. If you don’t draw a license, you still have the option to purchase a landowner tag and hunt with us this year. Landowner tags for elk range from $4,000-$7,500. If you’re interested in this option, please let us know as soon as possible. These tags are very limited in number and always sell out quickly.

First thing’s first, however – let’s submit your application. Securing a tag in the draw will save you thousands on your hunt. Again, the deadline to apply is March 22nd!

To get started, please call or text us at 575-517-6083. We will make sure you have the best application strategy that meets your goals.

We look forward to helping you plan a memorable New Mexico hunt!
