NEW MEXICO MOUNTAIN LION HUNTING
The mountain lion is a magnificent trophy, but an extremely elusive animal, requiring the aid of well-trained hounds. We hunt afoot, horseback, from four-wheel drives and snowmobiles, depending upon weather conditions. Fresh snow is always welcomed, but not absolutely necessary. We catch several lions each year on bare ground.
The New Mexico season runs October through April. We try to harvest only mature toms. The big toms are the trophies. During the past 30 years we have earned a reputation as one of the top producers of mountain lions in New Mexico. Our success rate runs in excess of 80 percent -- every year. All of our lion hunts are ten- day hunts, unless an ON-CALL hunt has been arranged. Lion hunts can be combined with bobcat, and Black Bear. Licenses are purchased over the counter
ADD-ON/NEW MEXICO BOBCAT HUNTING
The bobcat is also hunted with hounds through the winter months. There is no limit on bobcats, and many hunters have the opportunity to TAKE MORE THAN ONE. This hunt, combined with lion, makes for a wonderful winter hunting experience.
NEW MEXICO BEAR HUNTS
THE BEST BEAR HUNTING IN NEW MEXICO
In New Mexico we hunt the black bear species. They vary in color from jet-black to blond, with cinnamon and brown phases also being quite common. Most of our bear hunting is done from horseback behind hard-driving hounds. We also hunt from the truck with strike dogs on top of the box. Stand hunting can also be productive in the right situation, and is sometimes selected for hunters who are not up to the rigors of hound hunting. The area we hunt in New Mexico is well known for producing large bears. We have taken many bears with skulls measuring more than 20 inches. We have consistently produced 80 percent success rates on these hunts.
We offer a five-day fall hunt; normally scheduled August through November.
Bear hunts can be combined with a variety of other species including lion, antelope, elk and deer. Licenses are purchased over the counter.
