New Mexico Trophy Hunt

P.O Box 54 Des Moines, New Mexico


Our Locations:

  • Colorado
  • New Mexico

Welcome to New Mexico Trophy Hunts!

We have access to roughly 15,000 acres of private land in New Mexico game units 57, 58. This is our family owned ranch and home year round. 

Elevations range from 5700' to about 7500' with steep, rocky and forested terrain mixed with high mesas and high prairie grasslands. The Ranch is located due north of the town of Des Moines, NM by about 10 miles. The north side of the ranch is 1200 acres of irrigated alfalfa and grass hay farm. The farm tends to be the greenest place for miles and keeps the resident herd (150-200 head) within a days walk of it most of the time. The farm is easy to pick out on google earth by the crop circles made from the center pivot sprinklers. This is about 10. 5 miles due north of Des Moines, bordered by hwy 325, the rest of the ranch is to the south.

Meals are excellent, always a treat and prepared here by Amanda using ranch raised beef, farm fresh eggs and locally grown vegetables when available.

We take a very limited number of hunters each year so we are able to keep groups separate and let you have the bunk house and ranch to yourselves for the week.

The RanchNM Trophy Hunt pic 1

The Ranch is approximately 15,000 acres of private deeded land, located in NM game unit 58, spanning two thousand feet in elevation and set in some of the most unique and scenic land in the west. On the north side of the ranch irrigated alfalfa fields meet the Dry Cimarron River and rise over one thousand feet up forested and rocky canyons to the high prairie grass. From there you can see into the surrounding states on a clear day, or continue up another thousand feet to the tops of extinct volcanic formations. Gaze into the distance at Capulin Volcano National Monument and Sierra Grande Mountain, the largest single base mountain in the country.



Hunters stay in the newly renovated bunk house, a private guest house with all the amenities. It includes sleeping room for four, two bathrooms, a kitchenette, high-definition flat screen tv and wireless hi-speed internet access.

We have access to the ranch for all available New Mexico seasons and species.We have hunted as guides on the property and have taken 350 class bulls off of the ranch as well as 175 class mule deer. The property does have year round running water and is home to healthy resident herds.


Colorado Buffalo

We now have access to free range buffalo on 20,000 acres in Colorado game units 143 and 144. Buffalo are considered by the state to be livestock and therefore do not require state tag, license or certain hunting dates. We can combine a buffalo hunt with many of our private land wildlife hunts for this reason. Buffalo are priced according to age, both bull and cow hunts are available.
