The feeling of pulling your bow or sighting your rifle in on a trophy bull elk sends a shiver down any hunter’s spine. Angel Fire and the surrounding hunting land offer custom guided hunts as well as the luck of the draw on public lands. Several local outfitters are found in this area because of the abundance of wildlife. You will find:

  • Black Bear
  • Elk
  • Mule and Whitetail Deer
  • Pronghorn
  • Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep
  • Turkeys
  • Upland Birds and Even Cougar

It is not unusual to find world-class trophy bull elk in the backcountry near Angel Fire.


Camouflage is always acceptable attire for Angel Fire and your ATVs are welcome on many of the trails in the Carson National Forest.
