New Mexico Primitive Weapons Tro- phy Elk Hunts #10 It’s no big secret that some of the very best trophy elk hunting in New Mexico (and the world) takes place in the primitive weapons units of Southwest- ern New Mexico. These tags are tough to draw, but the drawing odds get better if you are booked with an outfitter, and can draw from the outfitter pool. This outfitter specializes in hunting Units 13, 15, 16, 17, and 36. Very limited tags in these units make for great hunting for bulls ranging between 300-400 points. Mostly 4x4 transportation with ranchhouse accommodations, although a wilderness horse- back/tentcamp hunt is also offered deep into the Gila Wilderness. It only takes a $500 deposit to book this hunt, and the outfitter will enter your name in the drawing every year till you are success- ful, or want to purchase a landowner permit. Landowner permits range from $4000 to $6500. 6 Day 2x1 Archery Elk Hunt $5749, 1x1 $7459 5 Day 2x1 Muzzleloader Elk Hunt $5749, 1x1 $7459 Private Ranch Elk Hunt with Guaranteed Permit, 1x1, Archery or Muzzleloader $13,499 $500 Deposit holds your hunt till you draw. 17
