Trophy Valles Caldera Elk Hunts
September 5 through October 24, 2007
If you are looking for true trophy elk hunt, this is it! The spectacular Valles Caldera National Preserve, previously called the Baca Ranch, is approximately 89,000 acres of high elevation forest and grasslands and is located in north central New Mexico. This magnificent piece of New Mexico is home to over 4,000 head of elk from April thru December. Located 50 miles north of Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Valles Caldera National Preserve is surrounded by the Santa Fe National Forest, Bandelier National Monument, and the Santa Clara Pueblo.
In addition to several antlerless hunts, five bull elk or either sex hunts are scheduled: two archery hunts; two rifle hunts; and a muzzleloader hunt. Seventy-three bull elk or either sex permits will be awarded to lucky hunters.
We are one of only a handful of outfitters authorized to guide hunters on the VCNP. Over the years we have guided scores of hunters to trophy bighorn sheep, mule deer, cougar and black bear, however, our specialty has always been elk. We know elk and we know the country. We are the only company who`s guides actually work on the ranch throughout the year.

Plane just landed, and I had to send you this quick note to thank you again for a great hunting experience. Hunting the Valles Caldera is a rare treat, and making the trip with you and your team made it unforgettable. Your attention to detail, the quality of your equipment and the help from your staff all culminated in a terrific hunt, resulting in a 320 B&C Bull , and a lot of great memories! I hope to draw again on that wonderful Preserve, once called the Baca Ranch, and will be also be applying for a 2003 NM Sheep tag. If successful, I hope I can count you in as my guide and partner. I know I`ll be bringing home a trophy with the team from Bear Creek. Thanks again!"
