valles caldera Hunts
Valles Caldera is 89,000 acres of elk hunting paradise. This is some of the best elk hunting in New Mexico. We provide quality guided archery, muzzleloader and rifle hunts. I offer customized packages for bull and cow elk hunts to meet your needs. Our lodging takes place at are Wapiti Lodge just 10 minutes from the gate of the Caldera with all modern amenities. We also provide drop camps and horseback hunts when requested. With little road access we utilize horses to pack out harvested game to assure your meat is properly taken care of. My guides and I have extensive knowledge of the Caldera and are experts at calling, judging and locating trophy bulls to make the most of your coveted elk tag. Every year we take bulls that score 350"-400". If you have drawn a tag or looking to apply using our free application service give us a call.
