Thal Ranch is 6,000 acres of privately owned New Mexico property. We are located in the foothills of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains. You will find no better place to hunt than the Eastern Slopes of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. The Ranch is an active cattle, horse, and hay operation. You have the opportunity to live well and rough it at the same time. Our Hunters Cabin has all the modern conveniences of home and is surrounded by hay fields which usually draw elk mornings and evenings. A very fine herd of Trophy Elk call Thal Ranch home every fall. Thal Ranch is privately owned and our guided elk hunts have an excellent reputation for consistent production. Because of its unique setting, we emphasize bow hunts and our bow hunters have enjoyed consistent success. We are happy that we have returning hunters every year to enjoy the property and to assist in the holistic management of the elk. The results are a healthier and stronger herd. The environment also benefits, which is a primary Ranch goal.

About Us!    
About Us:  
Thal Ranch is privately owned and operated. Gayla and John Thal are the managing partners of the Ranch and Robert Caldarella is our Ranch Foreman. Robert also books and guides the hunts. We are spread out over about 6,000 acres with mountain views, canyons, streams and lakes. We run cattle and horses on the Ranch.  Not only do we have herds of elk that cross our property but deer, antelope and bear roam our ranch as well. Geese, ducks, hawks and eagles nest and enjoy our ranch. Coyotes, road runners, wild turkeys and a variety of other birds and animals all call the Thal Ranch home.

Thal ranch is situated between Las Vegas, NM and Taos. There is great skiing in the mountains near by. When you are done hunting for the day, there is lots to do in Taos and Santa Fe.
