This private ranch is approximately 3000 acres. It is located near Laughlin Peak with a couple miles of the Van Bruggen Canyon flowing along our southern border. The CN Ranch is in unit 56 just east of Raton, NM and is home to a very large herd of Rocky Mountain Elk. The area commonly takes nice 6 x 6 bulls up to 350 but bulls in the 300" to 320" range are much more common. The ranch has cover for the elk, water and large grassy open areas for feeding and rut activity. The southwest corner is typically the hot spot during the rut and for later hunts our open areas to the northwest seem to hold more elk. Success rates vary from hunter to hunter but we average around 60% success. The New Mexico CN Ranch has been operated by new owner for just a few years and has not been real active as a hunting operation during construction of ranch house and other ranching requirements, but we have taken a small handful of hunters including a young youth hunter who tagged his first elk.
Hunting Cabin for your ELK HUNT
Hunters can stay in the adobe house located on the ranch that has a full kitchen and 2 bedrooms to accommodate multiple hunters. Meals are NOT provided on this hunt but can be arranged for an additional fee. There is a gas stove/oven, refrigerator and microwave for your convenience and a huge savings for you by providing your own meals.
Semi-Guided New Mexico Unit 56 Elk Hunt
Semi-Guided ranch owner lives on the property and has complete knowledge of access points and where the elk typically hang out. He will get you to an area or provide exact details in where to hunt. Once you kill your elk owner will assist in retrieval and hanging of your meat but you are responsible for field dressing, skinning, quartering etc....
Maximum of 2 hunters on the ranch at time and only 4 hunters per year so definitely not a lot of hunting pressure on this property. To the north of this property is the famous TO Ranch & Hunting Lodge known for great elk hunting and trophy bulls.
