This approx. 7,000 acre ranch is located 25 miles straight south of Tucumcari, a small town of 5,500 people conveniently located on I-40, between Albuquerque, New Mexico and Amarillo, Texas.  We offer un-guided mule deer hunting and coyote hunting.  A comfortable cabin is located at the foot of the heavily wooded Caprock and accommodates five hunters.

The ranch has a diverse topography - the north end is mostly open, rolling country,  while the south end is very rugged and steep.  Traversing the ranch on the south end is the approx. 400 feet tall "Caprock", an abrupt escarpment which separates the Quay valley below from the Llano Estacado with its farm lands on top. Steep canyons come off the rim, mostly covered by pinon and juniper and various browse and brush.  The mule deer feed on the alfalfa and wheat fields on top during the night, and seek shelter in the protection of the canyons below the Caprock during the day.  The deer are also found in the open country below.  They are a challenge to hunt as they are occasionally preyed upon by mountain lions.

 We take only a very limited number of hunters, and you and your friends will have the exclusive trespass right on the ranch for the duration of your hunt.  Our hunting package includes un-guided hunting and accommodation in our cabin.  We suggest you plan on arriving around noon the day before you start hunting when we will take you around the ranch and show you the boundaries etc.  You will be provided a topo map of the ranch and a key to any locked highway gates.


Our fully equipped cabin, which comfortably accommodates 5 hunters, is located at the foothill of the Caprock.  This is the old homestead we renovated.  It has two rooms separated by a lockable door.  Each room has a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and private entrance. We provide sheets and towels as well as basic cooking utensils, as well as flour, sugar, cooking oil, salt & pepper etc.  We recommend bringing sleeping-bags for extra warmth in case of cold temperatures. Hunters are expected to read and sign a Liability Release Form and to  comply with our "common sense rules" as well as any and all New Mexico hunter rules and regulations.  Click here for information.  You are welcome to come a day or two early  to do some scouting before starting the hunt. 

 We are seeing an increase in our Rio Grande Turkey population.  We are also seeing an increase in our Antelope population thanks to our brush control. In the not too distant future, we hope to offer turkey as well as antelope hunting.

Our cancellation policy is as follows:

Cancellation 4 months or more prior to scheduled arrival date - half of deposit refunded; cancellation less than 4 months prior to scheduled arrival date - full deposit retained. Should we be forced to cancel your reservation for whatever reason, we would refund you the full deposit.

We do everything we can to create an attractive wildlife habitat for the deer and other wildlife to inhabit the ranch.  However, since we are not high-fenced, we cannot make any guarantees as to hunt success.  As a hunter, you realize that factors beyond our control play a role in the deer's behavior, mainly weather and predators.  We do have an occasional lion traveling through the ranch which will scatter the deer.

We hope to see you here at the JX Ranch for a fun and rewarding hunt!
