Fall 2018 - New Mexico

This was a trip of a lifetime. I can honestly say, it would be almost impossible to have a better hunt. I did not bring home a bull, but I did have the opportunity to arrow a beautiful, giant bull, but (sadly) did not recover him. The guides went the extra mile searching for my bull and put forth the utmost effort to exploit all possible determination to do so. Not only was the action amazing, but the food was excellent, and the company and camaraderie was top notch. Every day was filled with screaming bulls and good times, and that was more than we could ask for. The guides were great and worked extremely hard for us, day after day. We will, without a doubt, be returning to hunt with Big Rim Outfitters year after year.

I have just returned from my third trip with Big Rim Outfitters. All three trips have resulted in successful harvests. This hunt involved my first attempt for a bull with a muzzleloader. The experience was awesome. The guides, Walker and Evan, performed extensive scouting prior to my arrival for the hunt. As a result, we were in screaming bulls from the moment we set foot in the unit. On the first day of my hunt, we had numerous vocal bulls to target. After letting a couple of young bulls go, we made a successful stalk on this fantastic public land bull. These guys make everything so easy on the hunter, it almost isn't fair. Anyone who has ever wanted to go after big bulls in wild country should give this group a call. It is a true experience and You will not be disappointed. I, for one, am already booked for next year.

2018 NM Archery Elk Hunt

I just finished a successful hunt of a lifetime with Big Rim Outfitters, and want to "Sing their Praises". As an older Archer of 78 years, I must admit I had limited expectations due to age, but Bob and his staff made it possible. My experience was 100% from beginning to end with two highlights: The delicious food prepared by his lovely wife, Jen, and getting to know his talented and dedicated guide of 25 years, Uranbo Garcia.  He is a true gentleman with an absolute wealth of elk knowledge that he is willing to share. Bob and Jen create a team with warm, family atmosphere.  They are dedicated to professionalism and filling tags. I sincerely hope to hunt Gila bulls again with Bob in the not too distant  future.

I wanted to thank Bob & Jennafer Daugherty and the rest of the folks at Big Rim Outfitters for an incredible time on my first archery elk hunt in the backcountry of the Gila National Forest of New Mexico. I was fortunate enough to get a 300+ herd bull elk on the first day of our hunt! Bob & Morgan had us in the middle of several bugling bulls that morning. I’ve been looking forward to this hunt for a long time and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Even beyond the hunt, I’m thankful for the new friendships made and getting to know Bob and his family. Thanks to Big Rim Outfitters for making this experience a memory that will last a lifetime! Hopefully, I’ll be lucky enough in the future to draw another tag, so I can get back out here to hunt with the Big Rim Outfitters’ team.

My experience with Big Rim Outfitters has been nothing less than outstanding. The Daugherty family provides the highest quality and most professional hunting experience of a lifetime. Their hunting experience and knowledge of big game and hunting terrain is second to none. After my first hunting trip with Big Rim Outfitters it was very apparent that their primary mission is the success of their hunters. The camp accommodations are very good, the food is excellent and the family style hospitality is exceptional.

Having been an outfitter myself earlier in my life, I am fairly particular in my assessment of outfitters. I have known Bob Daugherty for almost 40 years now. Over this time, besides all the great hunts, he and I and our two families have become like extended family to each other. We have hunted extensively together for many species in New Mexico, Colorado and Texas and the Northwest Territories in Canada where we hunted for Moose, Caribou and wolf. We have successfully hunted Rocky Mountain Mule Deer, Desert Mule Deer, Elk, Antelope, Bear, Oryx, Aoudad Sheep, Whitetail Deer, Turkey, Hogs and varmints together. We hunt together several times a year. All hunts have been in superior quality habitat and then naturally all animals taken have been of superior quality. But far and above this factor, is the extremely superior family that you hunt with in the Daugherty’s of Big Rim Outfitters, a wonderful Christian family that runs an outstanding outfit with a wholesome Christian family atmosphere. Accommodations and food could not be better and the camp atmosphere very comfortable and fun. The children, Walker and Morgan, have been raised up in this family way of life and are now extremely accomplished in their own right. Morgan’s husband Michael, has been immersed since marrying Morgan and has quickly established himself as an equally accomplished member of the outfit. I have hunted in all of their primary areas (and have been privileged to have been invited to explore some new ones) and can tell you for sure that they do have the game and they know how to hunt. Depending on where we are the hunts can be from a lodge, personal ranch house, turn of the century ranch HQ or an old-style cowboy canvas wall tent. You may hunt in trucks, UTV’s, ATV’s and on foot or possibly hunting on mules. I have recommended Big Rim to family, friends and business associates and all have returned from their experiences with Big Rim with the same glowing accolades. I can absolutely guarantee you that once you hunt with the Daugherty’s and Big Rim Outfitters that not only will you have one of the finest hunts of your life, but you will come away with a lifelong friendship.

Big Rim Outfitters has made a significant difference in my hunting career. I met Bob Daugherty in 1992 on a Colorado Mule deer hunt and it turned into a 24 year journey of adventure and friendship.

My hunts have been 100% shooting opportunity for all species hunted with a 97% success rate with bow, rifle and muzzleloader. (Aoudad, javelina, elk, mule deer, antelope) Many of my trophies qualifying for the Boone and Crockett and Pope and Young records books. The many clients referred from our full-time taxidermy business have all enjoyed similar results, boosting our business over the years with superb trophies to mount. In 2014, I took my 25th North American Species and qualified for the Super 25 award. That quest allowed me to meet many fine outfitters and some great people but I still rate the Big Rim Outfitter family and close knit group as some of the best. You will feel comfortable and safe in a Christian atmosphere and come away feeling like your own personal family has grown. If you want to make a significant difference in your own hunting career, I recommend you choose Big Rim Outfitters.

When it comes to hunting and harvesting big game animals, Bob and his crew are top notch. I have hunted all over North America, Mexico and Canada and you won’t find a more dedicated crew of people to make your hunt successful. I have been hunting with Big Rim Outfitters for 16 years and have harvested several animals including multiple elk, mule deer, bear, aoudad sheep and turkeys. In my business of filming outdoor hunting (Bringin’ It Home Youtube video series) it is important to get close and clear footage of mature animals, that is why I always hunt with Big Rim Outfitters.
