Experience the hunt of a lifetime at famed Rancho Lobo near Chama, New Mexico. One hunter and one guest will have exclusive access to 8,500 acres of prime elk habitat for a fully-guided, five day/six night trophy bull elk hunt. You and your hunting partner will get to choose any five consecutive days between October 14th and November 14th, 2017. Rancho Lobo will provide complimentary lodging on the ranch (subject to availability), a ranch vehicle and will skin, quarter and debone your elk for you. You will have seven (7) days from the date of drawing (July 15, 2017) to decide the dates of your trip. You will be responsible for purchasing a New Mexico hunting license.

Why is this such a unique opportunity?

The majority of New Mexico Game Management Unit (GMU) 4 (where Rancho Lobo is located) is privately held land. The only public draw opportunities to hunt Unit 4 are in the Sargent, Humphries and Rio Chama Wilderness Management Areas, and these 115 hard-to-draw tags are available only to New Mexico residents. The only other way to hunt this area is to go through an outfitter, which can easily cost between $5,000-$15,000, or secure a landowner permit, which will also run in the thousands if you can find one.

Rancho Lobo is primarily owned by Jack Brittingham and is featured in many of his hunting videos on www.JackBrittingham.com. This is some of the best elk habitat in the state. The average bull harvested on Rancho Lobo is about 7 years old, and scores typically range between 280-320, with the ranch record being 350. Only 10-15 people have the opportunity to hunt this invite-only ranch each year, and you can be sure that the wise old, trophy class bulls are aware of the low hunting pressure on these 8,500 acres. If you choose to hunt early October, chances are good that the bulls will still be bugling and screaming from the ridge tops. Former ranch manager and guide Aaron Jones describes Rancho Lobo as “prime elk habitat. There are so many elk here that 5 days on this ranch will provide more elk encounters than most people will get in a lifetime.”

This is a rare opportunity where you can increase your draw odds for a coveted elk permit by purchasing more tickets, and the best thing besides increasing your odds is that the proceeds from the raffle will be used to further CPLA’s mission of embracing and practicing responsible land, water and wildlife stewardship in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico.

Approximate Value of Trip: $9,000

Raffle Prize 2 – Guided Fly Fishing Trip on a Private Ranch with Land of Enchantment Guides

  • Fall Fishing In Chama, New Mexico

The winner of this raffle will receive a full day of guided fishing for two anglers with Land of Enchantment Guides at one of the private ranches they work with. This will be a unique opportunity to fish in some beautiful and secluded country, where you will most likely have the river or lake to yourself and have the best chance at catching and landing trophy sized fish. Upon being selected as the winner of this trip, you will need to contact Land of Enchantment Guides to pick a date and discuss your destination options. Depending on when you choose to go, Land of Enchantment guides will advise you on the best location for the type of fishing experience you want to have. Whether your priority is to be fishing an alpine meadow in the Rocky Mountains, landing a 20 inch brown trout, catching sight of elk, deer, bear and other wildlife while you cast or chasing down native cutthroat trout, Land of Enchantment Guides will take care of you.

The trip can originate out of either Chama or Santa Fe, and you must redeem the trip before the end of 2017. Waders, wading boots, rods and reels if you need them, along with all flies, leaders and tippet material will be provided, as will transportation to and from the fishing spot plus lunch, drinks and snacks. The trip does not include fishing license or a gratuity/tip for your guide.
