A Year-Round Hunting Paradise
Although the area is known by hunters around the country for the record Mule Deer, the hunting adventures available from the Rainbow Lodge are not limited to deer. Whether you choose archery, muzzle-loader or rifle, some of the best Elk hunting in the United States is available right outside your door from the Rainbow Lodge. World-class elk are harvested every year and elk permits in this area are highly sought after. The coveted Marriam's Turkey is a highly sought-after and abundant game species in the spring and offers one of most exciting and rewarding turkey hunts in the country. Other popular big game species in the area include Pronghorn Antelope, Black Bear, Cougar and Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep. Small game such as various waterfowl, Blue Grouse, Banned-tailed Pigeon, Morning Dove and Squirrels are abundant in the area and offer an excellent opportunity to introduce a young hunter to the sport.
Because this area is a coveted hunting paradise, many of the New Mexico hunting licenses are issued by a draw, so we reccommend you apply as early as possible for your desired species and season. You can learn more on regulations and obtain licenses by visiting the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish website.
