Sportsman’s Adventure

tooth715x150

Since the 1940s, Philmont has been offering guided, invitational big game hunts to those actively involved in Scouting. Sportsmen are considered upon recommendation from a local council Scout Executive. If approved, Sportsmen will be able to submit an application to hunt, which 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. 

All hunters must purchase a Game-hunting or Game-hunting and Fishing License before applying for any big game draw license.

Big Game Hunts

Philmont hosts several hunts throughout the year, including antelope, elk, deer, bear, mountain lion, turkey and buffalo. More information about fees and hunts can be found below.

Fees

Sportsman Adventure fees include room and board, a guide, vehicle, skinners, packers and meat processing. There are no individual charges and charges will not be prorated each day.

Come set your sights on Philmont’s unique big game hunting invitational! Experience an exceptional adventure, make memories and enjoy Philmont’s beautiful country.
