New Mexico offers several big game hunts for mobility impaired hunters.Before a hunter can apply for these hunts, they must be issued a four-year Mobility Impaired Card.Forms and more information can be obtained from New Mexico Game and Fish Department.
Non-hunters, depending on the circumstances, may or may not be able to accompany you on your hunt. (This does not apply to our youth hunters) If circumstances allow your non-hunter to accompany you as a guest on your hunt, they may or may not be allowed to participate in the hunt itself. This should be discussed prior to booking the hunt. There is a $200 per day non-hunter fee for the entire hunt. Non-negotiable. There is a limit of one non-hunter guest per client/hunter or hunting party.
Our fully guided hunts take place in the best Game Management Units in New Mexico for Rocky Mountain elk, mule deer, desert and Rocky bighorn sheep, ibex, oryx, barbary sheep and pronghorn. We offer these hunts for our clients that join our fully guided application service. We make this service as convenient as we possibly can for you. Once you have joined our application service, we apply you annually for whichever tags you like in the outfitter's draw pool. Once we have successfully drawn a tag or tags on your behalf, you will be contacted by phone or email about the details of your hunt. Your hunt will be fully guided and outfitted. Clients that apply for elk, deer, or pronghorn as solo applicants will be charged an additional 1x1 fee.

You'll be glad you did!

This service is for our fully guided hunts only. Our camps consist of either wall tents, ranch bunk houses, cabins or motels, depending on your hunt. Tent camps are part of a true western hunting experience. Each sleep tent will be equipped with propane heaters, lanterns, and comfortable cots and pads Hot showers will be available at our tent camps. A separate cook tent will be set up where meals will be prepared and eaten. On our fully booked camps, there will be a fulltime cook. For camps that are not fully booked, the guides will prepare meals. Either way, there's always plenty to eat! Alcoholic beverages will not be provided by H & A Outfitters but are not prohibited. You're welcome to bring your own and drink in moderation at the end of the day. The way it works you arrive to camp or a pre-determined meeting place the day before your scheduled hunt date usually after 1:00 pm and depart on the last day of your scheduled hunt date. If you are hunting the very last evening, you should be packed and ready to depart when you return to camp. Note: If client wounded during their hunt, they will not hunt the last afternoon of their scheduled hunt date. We feel if our guides have done their job and our clients did not do theirs, our guides should not have to guide the very last evening of your scheduled hunt. Meals: Dinner will be the only meal served the day before your scheduled hunt date and lunch will be the last meal served on the last day of your scheduled hunt date.
Our guides and cooks work very hard to make your hunt as enjoyable and successful as possible. Although gratuity is not mandatory, it's very much appreciated. It seems like a lot of clients ask "how much"? Here's a suggested guideline to go by: For guides figure 15% of your hunt cost. Example: $5,000 hunt cost = $750 gratuity. For cooks figure $25 per day so on a 5 day hunt it would be $125 and so forth.
H&A Outfitters, Inc. strongly encourage the use of fixed blade, cut on contact broadheads rather than expandable broadheads . It was always left at the hunter's choice and it still is if you insist. Therefore, we are forced to put in place a new wound policy. Due to wounding way too many bull elk during the past archery seasons, if a hunter wounds an animal using expandable broadheads, unfortunately that is the end of your hunt and you will spend the rest of your hunt looking for your wounded trophy.
I understand the importance of being as accurate with your weapon as possible, but keep in mind the kill zone on an elk is approximately the size of a paper plate. I think we can tune our bows to be accurate in a 6" radius using the appropriate tip and arrow for the size of the animal. A heavier arrow always seems to pass through with ease compared to a light arrow with a light tip. 85% of our shots are under 35 yards and the other 15% are under 45 yards. We owe it to the wildlife to be as efficient as possible.
