Discover Premier Duck Hunting in the Desert of Southern New Mexico

Explore the unique and exhilarating duck hunting opportunities in the beautiful desert landscapes of southern New Mexico. Our hunts span the cooler months of November, December, and January, offering a comfortable retreat with daytime temperatures ranging from 50 to 60 degrees — perfect for a day in the field.

Why Choose New Mexico for Duck Hunting?

Located at the intersection of the Central and Pacific Flyways, southern New Mexico provides an exceptional variety of ducks in their most vibrant winter plumage. This makes it an ideal spot for hunters looking to add stunning mounts to their collections. Our area boasts an impressive array of species, including mallards, wigeons, all three species of teal, gadwalls, mixed wood ducks, and pintails, alongside popular divers such as canvasbacks, ringnecks, redheads and buffleheads.

Hunting Experiences Tailored for You

We offer fully outfitted three-day hunting programs led by professional guides, ensuring you have an expert by your side. Hunters can enjoy the thrill of chasing both puddle ducks in the sheltered coves and divers at more open points. Our operations are based around key locations including Elephant Butte Lake and Caballo Lake State Park, as well as private stretches of the Rio Grande, perfect for hunting on colder days when ducks seek the moving waters.

Accommodations and Local Attractions

While the hunting adventure is rustic and raw, your lodging and dining will be comfortable and self-managed with several local accommodations available in nearby towns like Truth or Consequences. This setup gives you the flexibility to relax and unwind in the manner that suits you best after a day of hunting.

Season Highlights and Special Events

The season kicks off around Thanksgiving, a prime time for early migratory patterns, and continues to offer excellent hunting through December and into January, ending on the 31st. The changing weather, including potential rainstorms, adds an exciting element to the hunt, enhancing the likelihood of success and adventure.
