2nd Archery Season New Mexico Unit 15 Guided Hunts
2nd season September 15 – 24 Archery elk hunt 10 full days.
We only have 2 openings left for 2020 late Archery elk season in unit 15 New Mexico.
2 hunter 1 guide package is $12,500.00 ea plus license and taxes
1 hunter 1 guide package is $13,500.00 ea plus license and taxes
The 2nd is spot and stalk, water holes and some calling hunters can expect to see big herds, multiple bulls and on some days lots of bugling. Most of the bigger bulls will be with the herds and the satellite bulls hanging around screaming wanting a piece of the action. Big bulls once they are found on these hunts normally are easier to find during the rut but with all the cows often a little tougher to get into range for a bow shot.
The success rate on our NM unit 15 elk hunts:
Unit 15 Success rate
The early unit 15 archery elk hunt in the Gilas is one of a kind. The elk is found often at water holes and spot and stalk with the big boys starting to travel and hitting random water holes hunters often kill the biggest bulls while patiently sitting on a remote spring or tank.
The success rate in unit 15 New Mexico is around 40% with an Archery. A couple of the biggest bulls we killed last year where over 360″ but most should expect opportunity at bulls in the 300 to 350″ range.
Late Archery hunters may get to experience more of the rut as the bulls in unit 15 typically start bugling in mid to late September a slightly higher overall success rate on the late hunt but the early season water hole hunters often kill some bigger bulls.
Archery hunters in unit 15 NM can expect 40 -75% opportunity and about 30 – 60% success rate which is very high for Archery hunts in the west. In 2015 we had a 50% success rate with our NM area 15 elk bow hunters. The 2015 Archery elk report is 300″ bulls up to a 360″ bulls we had several unfilled shots where a hunter did not get the elk but missed or other misfortune.
