The hunting opportunities in New Mexico are about as diverse as the landscape. The state boasts some exotic species like the Persian ibex, oryx, and Barbary sheep alongside grouse, squirrels, quail, waterfowl, elk, pronghorn, and some of the biggest mule deer out west. Rio Arriba County is world renowned for producing some of the biggest mule deer, with 48 typical and eight non-typical entries in the Boone and Crockett record books. New Mexico gives hunters a beautiful and charming setting to have a successful hunt that might even end up in the record books. With the hunting opportunities in New Mexico comes opportunities provided by landowner tags. New Mexico’s Elk Private Lands Use System (E-PLUS) distributes a portion of the state’s elk hunting opportunities to private landowners which they can then barter, sell, or trade with hunters and because the only other way to obtain such a license in New Mexico is through a lottery these authorizations are highly valuable since they ensure one can legally hunt. Thus, as a landowner you’d have the ability to set the price you feel is fair and choose who hunts on your land. This is a big perk that you won’t find in any other western states and an opportunity to make some money from your land.
In addition to the hunting opportunities New Mexico provides for both hunters and landowners, the state is also the site of some great skiing locations, especially in the Angel Fire area. While the state does not get the same amount of recognition as Colorado or Utah, the slopes are there and the views just as breathtaking. Just 16 miles from downtown Santa Fe is Ski Santa Fe which boats 86 trails for ski enthusiasts of all levels. Another popular ski destination known as the Enchanted Circle and is comprised of three resorts in northern New Mexico by the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Think about owning property in the Angel Fire area, just 24 miles from these three ski resorts, and being able to get to and from the mountains so easily.
