Guided New Mexico Elk Hunts

New Mexico Elk Hunts

We Specialize in Elk Hunting for Trophy Bulls…

If you’re looking for a serious New Mexico elk hunting adventure — the kind of hunting experience that brings majestic, bugling, trophy bulls in so close the hair will stand up on the back of your neck, then you’ll want to book with LOH Outfitters. With comfortable accommodations, good food, and encounter great bulls in the 260” – 360” range bulls, we’re hard to beat for blood-pumping action in the Gila wilderness and Southwestern New Mexico.

Our elk hunts feature 1-on-1 professional guides in units 13, 15, 16, 17, and 36. Units 13, 15 and 17 are trophy units and can only be hunted with bow or muzzleloader. 

The draw deadline for these tags is in March and costs between $555-$780 for a successful draw. Unsuccessful draws refund all but a $89 processing fee, and we can provide guaranteed land owner tags ranging from $8,500 – $12,500 and up (prices are subject to New Mexico sales tax).

Do You Offer Landowner Tags (Ie: Guaranteed Tags)?

Yes, these tags range from $8,500 – $12,500 and up (prices vary by ranch). Prices are subject to New Mexico sales tax.

Can I Add a Day Onto My Hunt?

Yes, for an additional $750 per day on archery hunts only.

Does the Price Include Meat Processing, Shipping, and Taxidermy?

No. We will field dress your meat and have close connections with a local processor and taxidermist but you are required to pay for your own processing, shipping of meat, taxidermy, cape, and antlers. Plan on $200 – $400 for meat processing and shipping and $250 – $1,000 for mounts and taxidermy.

What is Expected as a Tip for My Guide?

Typical gratuities are 10-20% of the cost for the hunt, depending on your experience. Please tip you guide after the hunt. Our cooks also work hard to provide great meals. A tip for our cook staff is also very much appreciated.

Do I Need to Put Down a Deposit?

Yes, we require a non-refundable $750 deposit to hold your spot with LOHOutfitters. 50% of the hunt cost will be paid when you draw. Landowner tag deposits are $5,500. Your balance is due by August 15th via bank check or cash (upon arrival to New Mexico).

How Much Does the Draw Cost?

Between $555-$780 for a successful draw.

Does New Mexico Refund My Tag if I Don’t Draw?

Yes. Unsuccessful draws refund all but a $89 processing fee.
