Public Land Hunts

Chad Williams is our new public (draw) hunts manager. Chad guided for us a number of years. He knows everything there is to know about the state, regulations, hunting opportunities and the application process. Please email Chad at or call 505-604-7393 for assistance.

We are open for business in 2017 and are excited about the upcoming public lands hunt season. New Mexico forage conditions are great in most areas and we are seeing the quality of all big game and birds in some of the best health ever. Our business model for the public draw proved successful again with overall draw results at 32% (down from 39% in 2016) in April 2017.

JFWRC DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE! Your desire to hunt is all that matters and we will do whatever we can to make that happen. Remember, our goal is your success and our mission is to have you come to New Mexico to hunt as a valued client and leave as a lifelong friend.

Whomever you choose to help you take that trophy of a lifetime, be sure your outfitter/guide is permitted to operate in areas advertised. JFWRC is proud to state that we have Priority USFS Permits in the Carson, the Gila, and Cibola and Lincoln Forests. We are permitted on WSMR and the Farmington, Albuquerque, Las Cruces, and Pecos BLM Districts.We are also permitted to hunt NM State Lease lands. Again, be sure your outfitter/guide has the proper permitting before you contract with them.
