With Fishtail Ranch, every effort is made to make sure that your hunt and lodging be exceptional. We want to make your hunt with us one of your most enjoyable hunting experiences!
Fishtail Ranch hunts take place on private ranch land in Unit 4 Northern New Mexico, this means guaranteed licenses (NO DRAW REQUIRED) in a quality unit with one of the highest success rates in the state. Private land allows us to control both the number of hunters and the number of elk harvested, helping to maintain a quality elk herd.
All hunts are conducted in a spot and stalk manner. You will be driven to the various hunting areas in 4 x 4 pickups and then continue on foot, accompanied by one of our experienced guides. All Guides live in the Chama area where they are able to observe the elk year round. This gives Fishtail Ranch Hunters the opportunity to benefit from each guides unique understanding of the elk movement and habits in the area.
Every effort will be made to insure that both your hunt and accommodations meet or exceed your expectations. We strive to make this one of your most memorable hunting experiences.
