A stay at this private ranch, two hours north of Taos and three-and-a-half hours from Albuquerque, gives guests the rare opportunity for sole and private access to thousands of acres of wildflower-rich meadows, a four-mile stretch of the legendary Brazos River, two lakes and forests of ponderosa. With elevations ranging from 8,000 to 10,000 feet, Brazos River Lodge is set on private land and controlled by private ownership, where careful stewardship of the land, lakes and streams has made the lodge an ideal wilderness retreat for trophy caliber big game. Although bull elk are the primary draw, hunting is also great for mule deer, black bear, mountain lion and blue grouse.
Upon arrival at Brazos River Lodge, guests are greeted by their expert hunting guides who will lead private hunts through the backwoods of the ranch where the opportunity of five-by-five or larger trophy bull elk migrate down from Colorado for rut season. Hunters will get the opportunity to explore the pristine wilderness and duck behind dark timber, Douglas fir, blue spruce, oak, conifer and aspens in search of the perfect elk.

After a day of private exploration, guests retreat to an upscale mountain lodge tucked within the ranch’s sprawling wilderness.
