Is elk hunting continuing on famed Baca Ranch in New Mexico? Several subscribers who have seen our recent reports on the owners' efforts to sell the place have posed this question to us in phone calls. The answer is yes. But don't expect to be able to pick up a booking just by calling. The head of hunting at the ranch, Walt Kramer, tells us Baca is fully booked for the coming season except for a few scattered cancellations. In fact, the ranch is such a good place to hunt elk that it tends to fill up each year with returning clients, who have priority in booking. If you want to get in line with a serious chance of hunting the place, you'll need to leave a refundable $500 deposit on file. As for efforts to sell the ranch, they are continuing but the owners are not releasing any details to the public.
