Why hunt primitive weapon units?

Hunting in New Mexico’s primitive weapon units offers an unparalleled experience for those seeking a true challenge in the wild. These units are designed for hunters using muzzleloaders and archery equipment, providing a unique and traditional approach to hunting. With the stunning landscapes of New Mexico as your backdrop, the hunt becomes more than just a pursuit—it’s an adventure that harks back to the roots of hunting. The restrictions on modern firearms ensure a fair chase, and the opportunity to harvest trophy animals in these units is a testament to the skill and patience required. At Mangas Outfitters, we specialize in guiding hunters through these challenging yet rewarding hunts, ensuring a memorable and successful experience.
