At Chavez Creek we make sure we do what we can to make sure your hunt is successful and memorable   We take care of your lodging and meals for the entirety of your hunt (please be sure to provide us with a list of allergies).  We also provide transportation from the meeting point in Chama, New Mexico, to camp, all transportation during the hunt, and take you back to the meeting point. All transportation during the hunt will be by 4x4 truck or ATV.  We will field dress the animals and haul to camp and/or a meat processor.


For archery hunts we will provide one guide for every two hunters (1:2 guide ratio).  During the rifle hunts we will provide one guide for ever two hunters (1:2 guide ratio). Bear hunts are available with an elk hunt that is already purchased for an additional $1000.


To hunt our private land in Northern New Mexico you do not need to draw an elk license, it is a guarantee.


It is your responsibility as the hunter to provide firearms and ammunition for your hunt, it is also your responsibility to become familiar with and obey all big game hunting regulation of the State of New Mexico.  To ensure safety of all hunters and guides there will be no alcohol consumed during hunting hours.  Anyone under the influence will not be allowed to hunt.


The ranch has been in our family for more than 50 years, so we know the hunting very well   The terrain ranges from 8,000 feet to 10,500 feet and is home to the largest elk herd in the state. Regardless of the season the range of bulls is the same with most reaching 250 to 340 inches and occasional bulls reaching 340+B&C.  This is a fair chase hunt.


Our 2013 hunt was one of the best we’ve ever had.  Our archery hunters experienced 60% success with 100% shot opportunity (within 40 yards or closer)  Our rifle hunts were 82% successful with 100% shot opprotunity.  We recommend booking early to ensure you get the hunt you prefer. References are available by phone.


If you draw blood, your hunt for that species is over.


After we have received a completed agreement and a deposit in the amount of 50%  of your selected hunts the booking is complete.  When we send the land owner permits and final bill we will also send you a packet of information to include a gear list, additional information about the hunt, directions to the meeting point, and instructions on how to obtain your state game license  The final payment is due by September 1st.  If there is any further information you need or any questions our website hasn't answered, please feel free to call or email.  We welcome any and all inquiries.
