My name is James Coppedge and I have lived in Arizona and New Mexico for over 40 years. During most of that time, I have hunted, fished, trapped, and guided parties in this area. Pack-N-Horns provides a full range of services from semi- to fully-guided trips. I have the guides and know-how to make your next hunt and/or summer trip successful and rewarding.
We are primarily known for our success with elk, which are found in the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona and on private land in northern New Mexico and Gila National Forest in southwestern New Mexico. Some of these events are "limited draw" or "no quota". Here you'll find some of the largest herds of these fantastic animals in the 48 states and certainly the largest within the states of New Mexico and Arizona. We feel our private land and draw hunts enable us to assure our hunters one of the best all-around hunts anywhere, at any price!
Our public land hunts take place primarily in eastern Arizona. You put in for a tag for whatever type game you want to hunt. Should you be fortunate enough to be drawn, we guide you on the hunt for that game. The odds of getting drawn depend on the type of game you are interested in. If you would rather have us enter you in the draw, just let us know and we can take care of that. Lion & Bear tags can be purchased over the counter.
Our private land hunts take place on two ranches in New Mexico. The Chase Ranch & The Kimberlin's Ponil Ranch. Both ranches are located near Cimarron, NM which is a nice town rich in historic buildings and welcoming community members.
The Chase Ranch in north-central New Mexico. The ranch is 11,000 deeded private acres with many miles of common fence with the Vermejo Park to the east and Cottonwood and Philmont Ranches to the north and east. The Chase Ranch is located to the north and east of Cimarron, New Mexico and has been owned by the same family since 1872.
Kimberlin’s Ponil Ranch includes 19,600 Acres in Colfax County New Mexico & is with in New Mexico Game & Fish Unit #55, just north of the Village of Cimarron. It is bound on the southeast by Chase Ranch, east & northeast by Vermejo Park Ranch, northwest and west by the Valle Vidal Unit of Carson National Forest and south by the Philmont Scout Ranch. We have teamed up with Colorado Buck from Rocky Top Outfitters to provide even more of the highest quality hunts possible. Colorado is very good friend & hunting buddy who we enjoy our partnership with.
No matter public or private on either ranch, this is a superb hunting experience with highly qualified guides and full accommodations. Let's Go Hunt'N!
