Draw hunts are available for elk, whitetail deer, mule deer, antelope, Shiras moose, desert sheep, rocky mountain bighorn sheep, dall sheep, mountain goat, Coues deer, mountain lion, Oryx and ibex.
These hunts are in states that we have applied to the lottery and have been lucky enough to draw a permit. These areas are of the same quality and success as on our Private land hunts, but cost less because there are no land owner access fees or management cost. Usually these states will limit four hunters to an application; if one is drawn, the entire group draws. This way your hunting party stays together.
Draw hunts are the best value and quality in the nation. These hunts are priced only for guiding and outfitting. The only disadvantage to these hunts is planning. We have no guarantee when or if you are going to draw the tag. You should let our Professional Licensing Service apply multiple tags to various states for different species to dramatically increase your chance of getting a quality hunt. Accommodations on these hunts are usually cabins, deluxe tent camps, travel trailers or motel/hotel/rental homes, all depending on area drawn.
Licensing hunts should be applied for even if you are booked on a Private land hunt. We can apply you to areas with similar time frames and with equal or better quality animals. If you are lucky enough to be drawn, we will roll your deposit from the Private land to the Draw hunt and you will go on the less expensive hunt.
For all of you that have drawn “On-Range” oryx in the past here is your chance to apply again for oryx. This hunt is not a Once-in-a-Lifetime hunt, so you can apply and draw every year. The hunts are all done “Off-Range” on public land in New Mexico. We can apply for hunts in June, July and August and January, February and March. So, if you want to Oryx hunt again, we need to apply before the New Mexico deadline in March of each year. This 5-day hunt is $4,650 plus tag fee.
