Unit 51 and Unit 52 are located in North Central New Mexico. Unit 52 is approximately 300,000 acres in size and Unit 51 is approximately 380,000 acres. Both of these units are in a roadless/wilderness area that prohibits off road vehicles and off road traffic of any type. The areas have numerous open roads within the unit, often two to three miles apart, which allows the hunter access to areas to hunt by foot. These units have an excellent elk population and the number of hunters is controlled, as opposed to most of Colorado’s public land elk hunts. The odds of drawing a license are excellent with the outfitter number. The guides for these units are very knowledgeable of the areas and have consistently produced high success rates for bow, muzzleloader, and rifle. All of our hunting is done on foot in these units, except that we offer horseback hunts in Unit 52. These units offer the hunter easy access, an excellent elk population, and limited hunting pressure. This is a public draw unit and it usually offers a very high opportunity to draw a license with the use of the outfitter number.

  • The cost of hunt includes: the use of the Outfitter Number for drawing a license, the appropriate number of guides, accommodations, meals, courtesy transportation during the hunt, retrieval of game and caping for trophy preparation of the animal.
  • The hunter is responsible for: applying for the license, with our help, their personal gear including bedroll and weapon, and transportation to and from camp.

Lincoln National Forest – Unit 34, 36, and 37

elk-icon

We offer bow, muzzleloader and rifle hunts in these units. These units are known for big bulls and excellent numbers of elk. The guides for these units are very knowledgeable of the hunt area, are excellent hunters, and have a history of getting clients on big bulls. These are excellent units, and because of this it can be very difficult to draw a tag. These units are extremely popular and are in high demand by the sportsmen. A landowner tag in these units will continually sell for over $5,000.00 each. This is your opportunity to have a chance to draw a tag at a reasonable price and have a guided hunt to go with it for the cost of the landowner tag. You should make one of these hunts a minimum of one of your three choices on your application.

Gila National Forest

Kiowa has expanded its offerings and are conducting hunts in the infamous Gila National Forest. We hunt all units except for 16B and wilderness areas located within the units.
These are THE bulls that you hear about. We hunted last year in the units and harvested some exceptional animals. In the past the Kiowa Team has taken bulls up to 383 and often take bulls in the 340 and 350 class. This is a great opportunity to make a Gila hunt one of your three choices when you apply this year. Great hunt, great guides and great bulls.

Cibola National Forest – Unit 10

elk-icon
elk-unit10This unit is known for big bulls and a good number of elk. Although the number of elk in this unit is not as high as in other units, the size of the unit, the national monuments and closed areas within the hunt unit, allow for bulls to gain age and consequently size. The guides for these units are very knowledgeable of the hunt area, are great hunters, and have a history of getting clients on big bulls. This is an excellent unit and the odds of drawing a bow license is over 50% with all applicants, historically.
