[ Jim Cathy with his 7X7 Imperial Bull Elk Trophy from Thal Ranch - 2006 ] Thal Ranch is committed to  being environmentally and ecologically responsible. Managing members of the ranch are Gayla and John Thal. Ted Rambow is our Ranch Foreman. Ted books and guides the hunts. We are located in northern New Mexico in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Our property, as you can see from the many photos, is a mixture of rugged hills, lakes, natural springs, sagebrush flats combined with lots of tree cover which is the perfect habitat for elk and for an exciting elk hunt.

We also are unique in that we have an irrigated hay field that draw elk from the nearby mountains. Not only do our elk herds enjoy our high altitude ranch but you will too!

Our spring is bringing more moisture than normal and we are hoping for lots of grass. With our hay fields, our herds should be well fed and looking forward to their rut. When those bull elk begin to bugle we are hearing some of the last truly wild sounds left for us to enjoy.

When fall arrives and the trees are in full color we hope for a very active Rut.

Our permits for your elk hunt will normally be for 5 days. Guided elk hunts are available. Whether you choose guided or not, our past harvests have been outstanding. Both rifle and bow have yielded magnificent trophies.

Our property is a beautiful place to hunt and your accommodations are first class. We are proud of the fact that we have returning hunters every year. We are looking forward to your successful hunt. Our Rifle and Bow permits run from September 1st to December 15th. Please call Ted Rambow at (970)819-9799 for details. If you are looking for a Trophy Bull Elk to be proud of the rest of your life and you want to hunt on one of the finest private ranches in Northern New Mexico, come to Thal Ranch.

One of the last truly wild sounds heard in the Rocky Mountains today is the spine-tingling bugle of the bull elk. The sound of a big bull elk's bugle in the wild is unlike any other sound. The bugle of a bull elk is a never forgotten sound out here in the Rocky Mountains.

The successful elk hunter needs to understand the animal they are after. They need to know the places that they go and when they will go there. Ted Rambow understands where the bulls will be and where they come to feed in the early mornings and late afternoons.

Elk in New Mexico!

 

We have several elk hunts on our New Mexico ranch during “THE RUT”. By the middle of September “THE RUT” is usually in full swing. Each of our hunting permits usually run for five days.

All of our hunts are conducted on our well managed private land and you will have exclusive hunting rights during your permitted time. Our permits are date specific which limits our hunters and preserves our herds and manages our thinning. Up here in the highlands of the Sangre de Cristos, nature's predators are scarce, so we have the yearly hunts in order to help with the herd management. 

Our hay fields are  unique in the area. Our herds of elk enjoy our fields and they provide an excellent opportunity for our hunters as well. A healthier, thriving herd means successful hunts and better trophies for our hunters.

Our property is a beautiful place to hunt and your accommodations are first class. We are proud of the fact that we have returning hunters every year. We are looking forward to your successful hunt. Our Rifle and Bow permits are date specific from September 1st to December 15th depending on which you choose. Please call or for details.
