Bull elk in a meadow on the Santa Fe National Forest


Santa Fe National Forest is home to some of the best big game trophies in the country.  One of the only places in New Mexico to hunt Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, the Pecos Wilderness sustains one of the only transplant populations of this diminishing species.

 A very popular activity on the forest both for locals and hunters from all over the world, hunting occurs only at specific times of the year. The New Mexico Dept. of Game and Fish provides information on permits, species and hunt dates.
