New Mexico’s Block Ranch

Private Deer, Elk, and Antelope Hunts on the Block Ranch

The Block Ranch consists of 48,000 acres located on the northern slopes of the Capitan Mountains and is perfect for deer, elk, and antelope hunts. This is truly BIG BUCK & BULL  country, with several B&C antelope bucks harvested in the immediate area. The ranch is 20 minutes NE of Capitan and 1 hour West of Roswell. We strive to take Mule Deer bucks in the 150-170+ range. However, we have had folks see 180-185 recently. Due to the conservation efforts of the owner, we have negotiated special deer hunts with NM Game and Fish, which means we can hunt the rut!

This will be our tenth year to have this lease as an offering, and we want you to know it’s very special to Jim. He shot his first buck here when he was 12. 

This ranch is 100% deeded with a 6 hunter maximum on both antelope and mule deer, and 2 on bull elk. Antelope hunting takes place mid September for three days, per state license. Elk hunts run five days, October 1st through December 31st and the Mule Deer hunts are typically held in November and December. NEW in 2023-We are adding Barbary Sheep to our Block Ranch offerings. We are working out the dates to accommodate sheep hunting but will most likely try to make combine them with either elk or deer hunts.

Accommodations vary. Meals are provided on all fully outfitted hunts.
