The best desert bighorn hunts...anywhere


La Palmosa Ranch

The 100,000 acre La Palmosa Ranch is the result of a vision to restore native wildlife to the Chihuahuan desert of northern Coahuila and non-game species and to enhance and protect and the biodiversity of native flora and fauna.  This herd is overall a young herd, transplanted about 12 years ago. A 16 inch base is common, with most rams taken being 38-40 inches and lightly broomed. To date, the average ram taken has a green score around 178 points.

The owner of La Palmosa had previously owned portions of the ranch for more than 50 years. In 1994, the current ranch owners began purchasing and swapping neighboring ranches. Today, La Palmosa encompasses 156 square miles of spectacular desert, mesa and mountain topography ranging from 4,200' to 8,600' in elevation. Ranch headquarters is an immaculate five-star lodge with individual casitas lavishly appointed with exceptional artwork and Sante Fe-inspired antique furnishings for the enjoyment of family, friends as well as hunting and business clients.

Go hunting while you are physically able.
