Here are 10 tips for prospective hunters at Grey Ghost Outdoors NM.

  • Our hunts will take place over ever changing terrain consisting of flat prairies to rocky ledges. Please be prepared for long hikes. Correct boots, clothing, lightweight gear packing, and the ability to haul your game from location to vehicle is important.

  • Know your health abilities. Altitude sickness, fatigue and dehydration can be common health risks in the arid and dry climate of the high deserts of New Mexico. Altitude will range from 6,000 to 8,000 feet above see level, over a mile high!

  • It’s ok to know your limitations. Unrealistic expectations can lead to unhappy results.

  • Please follow our “guidance.” While we will make every effort to get you the kill, we also must look out for the safety of everyone involved and the preservation of the land.

  • Know your weapon and all its accessories!

  • Learn to shoot in different positions, standing, kneeling or laying down.

  • Practice shooting long distances. There are lots of times up here that you need to shoot farther than 100 yards.

  • AMMUNITION- bring the right size bullet and enough backups. Should you unfortunately not take the animal down on the first shot, a bullet big enough to leave a good blood trail helps. If you have any question on your choice of weapon or ammunition, we can help.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us!
