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 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. The #1 rule when you are on a paid fully guided hunt is never try to guide your guide, that's why you paid us. Your guide is a professional, let his knowledge and expertise work for you. You'll be glad you did!

This is a great opportunity to apply and draw a tag on your own utilizing the outfitter draw pool in some very good hunting units that we selected to insure good opportunity and success and also good trophy potential. Your semi-guided only service will include one day scouting before your hunt date. Keep in mind our guides know the units very well. Our professional guides will assist and guide 2 to 4 hunters at a time for 2 to 4 days utilizing proven grounds, water holes, feeding areas, elk and deer travel routes, and calling when productive. Our guides will assist in field care during the semi-guided days only. You will provide your own camp and supplies and transportation throughout the hunt.
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 with 4 or more hunters, there will be a full time cook.For camps with 3 or less hunters, 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.
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.
