The ResourceThe Lodge at Chama 30,000 unrestricted acres on which to hunt the migratory elk that make there home here from late summer to early winter – and most importantly, during the autumn elk hunting season. With average scores of 285, we regularly take free-ranging bulls of 300-plus on these hunts.
Due to our ownership by the Jicarilla Apache Tribe, these hunts are one of the few hunts in North America where you can hunt bulls during the rut with your choice of weapon. Many hunters choose to hunt bugling bulls with a rifle, while others stick to archery equipment.
The HuntAll Bull Elk hunts include 6 Nights/5 Days of accommodations in our lodge. Each hunter will have their own dedicated guide for these hunts.
These hunts are conducted with a mix of spot-and-stalk and still hunting techniques utilized. Hunters joining us during the rut will experience calling setups and locating bulls with bugles and cow vocalizations.
Hunters looking for the opportunity at larger bulls may want to consider our Private Herd hunts.
