Imagine having 1-on-1 access to decades of successful elk hunting knowledge and experience that’s being shared and coached while getting to put it into action on an actual hunt. Chasing elk in the incredible mountains of New Mexico!

An ElkBros coached hunt is about being on a hunt with everything that you would use on your own if DIY.  Your hunt system, your camp system, your own transportation, communications and navigation system while in the field with your coach in a one on one situation to help you identify and overcome possible failure points without having to find out the hard way. Our hunts are about giving you the tools and helping you run with it. Empowering you to make and understand decisions. To learn and use specialized skills. To help you become  a more knowledgeable, capable, effective and confident and successful DIY elk hunter!

Your Success Squad...

Prior to a hunt with our ElkBros Certified Coaches, every client receives a 1-year subscription to our BaseCamp Online Course and is contacted personally by our ElkBros Success Team to prepare them in Calling & Closing, Equipment Set-Ups, Shooting Prep, Failure Point Mitigation and Physical Preparation. This is hunt training LIKE NO OTHER so our hunters hit the ground running.
