At an elevation of 7800’ this is New Mexico Elk hunting at its best…untouched rugged, natural and raw. Hunt in the pristine Lincoln National Forest surrounded by poplar, pine and fir trees. NMBGO Is a family owned operation offering a full time professional and personalized outfitting and guide service. We have been guiding our clients, friends and family since 1994 here in New Mexico. We continually scout and locate game to make your hunting trip to the Lincoln National Forest a successful one.


Our Mission is to make sure you have great accommodations, excellent guides, many shot opportunities and a memorable hunt. We will do everything possible for you (except shoot your elk!) We will cape and quarter your trophy. Don’t waste your time traveling; all of our hunts start from your front door with no travel time. Some of the things you will not find at NMBGO; horseback rides, long hikes, long drives or days without seeing an elk!


Our archery elk hunting can be some of the most exciting hunting you will ever do! We like to get up close and personal with big rutting bulls.


Our hunts come with a Rustic Private Cabin for up to 4 Hunters, Hot Showers and Wood Stove for the predictable cool nights of fall. We also have a large cabin for your meals and extra guests. We take care of everything from the minute you get here to the minute you leave!  And it is Mark Orton’s passion that becomes your benefit while finding big game.
