September - Archery Guided Elk Hunts
There are several New Mexico elk hunts during the month of September. Each hunt is five days with two hunters per guide; we allow a maximum of four hunters per hunt to assure the best chances for success.
The "RUT" begins in the first part of the season and is usually in full swing after the 10th of September. Bugling bulls can be heard throughout the archery season. If you love the sweet sound of the infamous Wapiti then this hunt is for you. Several 300" - 380" bulls are extremely vulnerable during this time of year.
Combination elk and deer hunts are available during some archery hunts. JACO Outfitters LLC can assist you with combo hunt arrangements and hunt details.
October - Rifle Elk Hunts:
October is rifle season for elk hunts in New Mexico. The first elk hunt of the season begins the 1st week of October. We provide three public rifle elk hunts throughout the month of October, with private land hunts available from October 1 through December 31.
Muzzleloader Elk Hunts:
Muzzleloader hunts are available from the first week in October through November.
Other Wild Game:
JACO Outfitters LLC can assist you with arrangements for other hunts for antelope, bear, sheep, cougar and wild Merriam's turkey. Please contact JACO Outfitters LLC for seasons and possible openings.
