Kauffman Outfitters

The premier, high-success hunting alternative in New Mexico 

Persian (Bezoar) Ibex

In all three weapon categories we have many ibex among the top ten taken in New Mexico .  We have taken the top three and six of the top ten archery ibex in New Mexico .  If you already have an ibex license, please consider talking to our references.  Call us at 575 430-4239 for a list of our recent clients.

The ibex herd is very large and the quantity of available licenses remains high. Upcoming seasons will be designed to bring and keep the herd size within established guidelines. So, draw odds will get worse in the foreseeable future as the herd size gets smaller. Presently all applicants (resident and non-resident) are in the same drawing. So, apply now and keep applying before the odds get worse.

The outfitter Dennis and the master guide Cecil have been guiding ibex hunters continuously since 1984.  Combined  they have over 50 years of ibex experience.  They still personally guide hunters and also train the rest of the staff and coordinate the daily hunt activities.  We maintain our reputation as the best service available to ibex hunters by providing experienced, dedicated, and well trained people who work together in effective ways to conserve everyone’s physical energy and save time in the process of providing shot opportunities on high quality billies.  When a hunter books with us he doesn’t get just a guide, he gets a well organized team that executes a constantly updated plan of attack to optimize hunter success.  Our ibex hunts are the recognized symbol of our conspicuously excellent service to hunters.

The ibex hunts occur on the Florida mountains which are primarily BLM and state owned lands.  To confirm that we have the legally required (see page 36 to the Game & Fish Rule Book) permits to guide you please call the Las Cruces District BLM Office at (575)  525-4300 and the New Mexico State land office at (505) 827-5760.  Only IBX-1-525 Trophy Rifle hunt is "Once in a Lifetime.".
