Sportsman Adventure - Hunts

Spread among the mountains and mesas of northeastern New Mexico, Philmont welcomes you to our Sportsman Adventure, big game hunting. Since the 1940’s we’ve been offering guided, invitational hunts to those actively involved in Scouting. Sportsmen are considered upon recommendation from a local council Scout Executive. Once reviewed and if approved, Sportsmen will receive an application to hunt. Applications must be accompanied by a deposit. If successful in the draw, Sportsmen will receive a letter of acceptance. If unsuccessful, Philmont will refund the deposit and Sportsmen will remain on the mailing list for future hunts. Come set your sights on Philmont’s unique big game hunting invitational. Experience an exceptional adventure, make memories and enjoy Philmont’s beautiful country.
