My name is Jim Welles. I own and operate JFW Ranch Consulting, LLC, with my wife Kelly at 10600 Eagle Rock Ave, Albuquerque, NM 87122. My office phone number is 505.294.7861. My cell number is 505-967-6562. Our e-mail address is JFWRC@comcast.net. Kelly and I have been guiding and outfitting in NM over 25 years now.
We currently have openings for two elk hunters wanting the OCT 6 Muzzy or the OCT 13 First Rifle in New Mexico's Game Management Unit 52. This unit is in north central NM and sits below the Colorado Border. This hunt is guided only and includes landowner authorizations in the price. The offering does not include your NR State License at $630, meals or lodging. However, we have access to a little cabin right in the middle of the action for $75/night for both people. Bring your buddy and go elk hunt at the best time for elk in this unit. If you can use a muzzy, the OCT 6 timeframe is prime rut (scopes and inlines OK in NM). The OCT 13 timeframe is good as well and you can bring your rifle. You must pick one timeframe or the other and the hunt is 5 days long. You will be guided 2x1 by one of our pros.
A good bull in this unit is 270-300. An exceptional bull will be 320-340 and yes we have seen them. The biggest we have ever taken is 325. If you have your sights on a nice 6x6 in this unit, you best squeeze the trigger.
The cost for both (2) hunters is $9,500 + NM Gross Receipts tax for a total to us of $10,111.56 or $5,055.78 EACH. You tell me where you can find a better bargain in a good NM Elk unit with a LO permit right now?
In-lines w/Scopes are legal in this unit.
If you want to DIY this hunt, let's talk about the LO Authorizations only at $3500 ea + tax.
Please contact me at JFWRC@comcast.net or my cell at 505-967-6562 if you have any interest.
