      Duck Hunting    
      Guided Duck Hunting Trips at Elephant Butte Lake, N.M. have been excellent during the last few years because the lake has produced great habitat for all types of water fowl. There has been a lot of ducks flying south from Colorado to winter here in Elephant Butte Lake. It seems the colder it gets up North; the more ducks show up in our Lake. Duck season starts mid October and runs thru the end of January. I guide Duck Hunters on Elephant Butte Lake, supply Duck Boat, decoys and ground blinds. Hunters bring their own shot gun and steel shot. Most common ducks are gadwalls, wigeons, mallards, shovelers, pintails, canvas backs & teals. Please refer to the N.M. Game & Fish for more information and regulations.
Please call Frank for prices and additional information @ 575-740-4710.
