                              Welcome to Sacramento Mountain Outfitters of New Mexico

We take pride in what we do and our goal is to provide every client with a successful and enjoyable elk hunt. This is a family owned and operated business. We handle strictly private land hunts and monitor and control our game harvest continually.

With my knowledge of the Sacramento Mountains, I intend to give you a successful and enjoyable hunt. I am a native New Mexican, I have hunted, fished and trapped this state my entire life. This ranch holds all the right ingredients for a once in a lifetime opportunity to harvest a great Bull Elk.

We are located in the middle of the Lincoln National Forest and Sacramento Mountains in southern New Mexico. With a combined acreage of nearly 10,500 acres from altitudes of 6,000 feet to 9,000 feet, being in good physical condition is not necessary but should help to increase your success rate.

The season opens with a September bow hunt, followed by October muzzleloader and rifle hunts. The rut starts in September and we find bulls bugling through October.

The only way to guarantee yourself an elk tag in New Mexico is to purchase a landowner permit. The landowner permits are issued to private ranches and elk hunts are conducted exclusively on private land.

We offer a variety of elk hunts in order to meet individual goals and physical capabilities. Every elk hunt has a limited number of licenses, ensuring low hunting pressure and quality Elk herds. All hunts are for wild, free ranging Elk and we only hunt on private land.  No high fences and no releasing of elk, just a solid, fair-chase trophy elk hunt. Sacramento Mountain Outfitters does not guarantee anything regarding hunting. Hunting is hunting. But with that said, most all hunters get shot opportunities at 300+ bulls.

We use four-wheel drives or ATV's to reach various locations, after that, the hunt will require you to cover the hunting grounds on foot to locate the bulls. We have had very consistent success on our Elk hunts and the majority of our hunters have had an opportunity to take a mature Bull.
