Game Management

While best known for producing excellent quality Angus Bulls, the Thompson Ranch Land & Cattle unique location, situated in the foothills of the Los Pinos Mountains and bordering the 230,000 acre Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge (that does not allow hunting), provides the Thompson Ranch as the ideal game sanctuary.  One flight over the Sevilleta this past year documented over 35 bull elk in one herd.  Rocky Mountain Elk, Oryx and antelope have not been hunted in 25+ years on the ranch, with only an occasional mule deer harvested by a family member. The owner has managed this incredible holding for excellent cattle and game management, growing the elk, antelope, Oryx herds and mule deer to its current proportions.  Socorro County has been a known B&C bull elk producer and the Thompson Ranch holds some incredible animals documented in the 375+ range, with typical mule deer to 190+ and the occasional 220+ non-typical. The pronghorn abound and the free range Oryx (Gemsbok) roam on and off the ranch from the bordering White Sands Missile Range to the South. Every waterhole and drinker holds quail and doves.  Lion, coyotes and bear are available for the predator enthusiast.  New Mexico’s 3rd largest black bear came from the Thompson Ranch.  Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep are ranch visitors from time to time.  10 landowner elk tags annually, (more possible), OTC Landowner mule deer tags, Off Range Oryx Tags (Year Round) and unlimited landowner antelope tags.
