New Mexico's cattle ranches range in size from the 290,000 contiguous deeded acres of the Bell Ranch in the northeastern part of the state, to smaller ranches consisting of one or two sections of deeded land and large forest service, state, or Bureau of Land Management grazing leases such as the Luera Ranch in the southwest's Catron County. New Mexico's abundant public lands, available for cattle grazing, add value to private or deeded acreage and support a way of life for New Mexico's ranchers that dates back to the granted land of the 1800's.

Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch
Sitting at the base of the Gallinas Mountain, just outside of Corona, New Mexico, and located only a short distance from Ruidoso, Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch offers its owner location, spectacular views, hunting, livestock, mild climates, and a selection of things to do in the area. Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch consists of 7,160 acres of which 6,800 are deeded with electricity and telephone readily available. The ranch has three wells, numerous dirt tanks, and the potential to run 300 yearlings. Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch is currently being managed for its quality mule deer and elk population with deer in the 170's and 180's and elk in the 370's to 400's seen and harvested on the ranch and in the surrounding area.
Antelope abound in the plains country stretching from Socorro through Magdalena and Datil, and on to Horse Springs and Reserve. Seeing an abundance of bucks on a regular basis makes this hunt a tremendous amount of fun. Ranches
and landowners are typically issued antelope permits in proportion to the number of public draw hunters allowed to access their deeded ranch land.
Trophy Mule Deer
Harvesting a Boone & Crockett mule deer is as great if not a greater accomplishment then harvesting a Boone & Crockett elk. Record book bucks have been taken on many southwestern hunting ranches
in the areas around Datil, Magdalena, Quemado, Pie Town, and Reserve. Watching, and scouting, for the big bucks throughout the September and October elk season increases the odds of success. As a result, when muzzleloader mule deer season opens in late October Catron, Socorro, Cibola, and Valencia counties ranches
and public lands produce some trophy mule deer. Deer incentives permits are issued to ranches
that provide habitat improvement for their mule deer population.
Bugling Bull Elk
The trophy genetics of the elk population in southwestern New Mexico make the hunting ranches
in and around the areas of Magdalena, Datil, Pie Town, Quemado, Reserve, and other communities exceptional. Archery elk season takes place in September when the bulls are typically in the rut and numerous record book bulls have been taken both on public land and on the private ranches of Catron and Socorro County.
Muzzleloader and rifle seasons for elk primarily take place in October and Safari Club International's #1 typical elk was taken south of Magdalena in Socorro County.
Landowner permits are issued to the area ranches specific to the game management unit and the number of deeded acres.
New Mexico Hunting Ranch
Your New Mexico's cattle ranch will more than likely become a New Mexico hunting ranch
throughout the fall and winter hunting season. What started out as fun, or a way to bring in a little extra money, is now a very lucrative asset to most cattle ranches. New Mexico's quality big game hunting along with New Mexico's landowner system, managed through the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, provides ranchers with landowner permits for elk and antelope, and special incentives for deer management.
