Welcome to Extreme Hunting Adventures.  If you are looking for that Trophy Elk hunt of a lifetime or a
    spectacular wilderness adventure, then you've come  to the right place.

    We offer Elk hunting, as well as Mule Deer, Coues Deer, Mountain Lion, Black Bear, Turkey, Oryx, Ibex,
    Antelope, Barbary Sheep, BigHorn Sheep, Desert Sheep, and Javelina.

    The D bar Ranch, headquarters for Extreme Hunting Adventures is located at the headwaters of the Gila River in
    Western New Mexico, ten miles South of Beaverhead, New Mexico and fifteen miles North of the Gila Cliff
    Dwellings National Monument.  The Gila National Forest and the Gila Wilderness have long been famous for the
    quality and consistency of Trophy Game produced.  Here at the D bar Ranch we have all the amenities to
    operate a top notch hunting and outfitting service.  It is our goal to provide you with the best possible
    experience Trophy Hunting has to offer.

    Maybe the most important element to being a Great Hunting outfitter is ones reputation in the business.  We have been
    guiding hunters here for many years and strive to continue to offer a great service to our clients.  You can find our Trophy
    Hunts listed in such magazines as 'Huntin Fool' and on their web page www.huntinfool.com under hunt finder our Elk Hunt
    is WB0332 and our Oryx hunt is WB0370.

    As with all big game hunting you must have a license prior to hunting.  Black Bear, Mountain Lion and Turkey licenses may
    be purchased over the counter. Elk, Deer, Pronghorn Antelope, Bighorn Sheep, Ibex, Javelina, and Oryx licenses must be
    obtained through State Lottery Drawings or by purchasing a landowner authorization certificate.

    We can help you enter the New Mexico or Arizona State Lottery's.  We can help you choose which unit and hunt would
    provide you the best chance for success.  The D bar Ranch is ideally located in the center of the Gila National Forest and
    one mile from the Aldo Leopold Wilderness.  Game management Unit 16B, which is nearly entirely Wilderness, lies to the
    South and Game management Unit 16C, which is nearly 50% Wilderness, lies to the North.  These are the two game
    management Units in which we hunt the most, but we also operate in game management Units 16A, 16D, 16E, 17 and
    Eastern Arizona.

    If you want to bypass the draw, you may purchase a guaranteed landowner tag for Elk, Deer, Oryx, Pronghorn Antelope,
    Barbary Sheep and Ibex.  Please call or email us for pricing and availability.  575 772-5927 or (719) 942-4709 or email us

    My name is Matt Gilstrap, I am the owner, outfitter, guide, wrangler, houndsman and horseshoer for this operation.  This
    business is not only my way of life it is my passion as well.  It was never my dream to be an outfitter, it was my fathers, I'm
    just the one who gets to live the dream.  I have been hunting and guiding hunters for nearly 30 years now, it just seems to
    go hand in hand with horses and hounds and ranch life in general.  I have the knowledge and experience that only comes
    with years and miles and the trials and errors of the hunting industry.  I give 110% to every client and expect no less from
    my guides and staff.  I can not always guarantee the hunting will be great, but I can guarantee  we will work hard for you. I
    can guarantee we have good horses and good equipment I can guarantee you will be hunting in an area that contains the
    type and quality game you are seeking.  I can guarantee you will be treated fairly by professional and knowledgeable staff.  
    And I can guarantee that if you don't pursue your dream, you will never achieve it.
