• Welcome to San Francisco River Outfitters. We take only a limited number of hunters each year to insure individual attention and trophy quality opportunity. Our specialty in the industry is that we offer true pack-in wilderness hunts using well trained mountain horses and mules to get you back where the big bulls live!
  • “Tom Klumker and his crew helped me and my son Ty on my son's first archery elk hunt in 2013. We did a hunt with San Francisco outfitters into the Gila wilderness and it could not have been better. Tom has good stock animals; he’s honest, hard-working and knows the wilderness. I would highly recommend Tom and San Francisco outfitters to anyone wanting a wilderness experience. I can't wait to do this again! Sincerely Jeff and Ty Taylor”
  • “We hunt from quality wall tent camps with cots and pads in sleep tents and a cook/dining tent with full-time cook and using a full time wrangler and 1x1 guide service.”
  • While we offer the best trophy bull elk wilderness hunts in America, we also offer hunting trips for Coues Deer, Bighorn Sheep, Antelope, Javelina, Merriam’s Turkey, Mule deer, Mountain Lion, bear, Ibex and Oryx in both New Mexico and Arizona.
  • “We have hunted with Tom multiple times and can’t say enough about his integrity and knowledge of the wilderness. There are many part-time non New Mexico resident outfitters to choose from. Tom is different as he has lived next to the Gila’s and spent countless hours in them the last 30 years. This equals knowledge and big bull opportunities for his clients! Brett Gorrell / Drue Collins
  • I have been hunting the Gila and Blue Range Wildernesses since 1972 and professionally outfitting there since 1986. We try very hard to go beyond the other hunters and outfitters to get our hunters into parts of the wilderness areas where we see few other hunters.
OUTFITTER

OUTFITTER & GUIDE

Tom Klumker, your outfitter guide. We use some of the top guides in the West, which enables us to consistently harvest trophy class animals. I have owned horses and mules and have been packing into wilderness areas all of my life. In recent years some outfitters whom have no livestock opt to put some of their clients in for the wilderness hunts and then try to farm out the packing and camps to unqualified operators or they try to hunt from the trail heads. If you want a true traditional wilderness pack-in hunt where knowledge and experience count, give us a call.

2013 HUNTING RECAP

2013 HUNTING RECAP

Despite an extremely dry winter and spring, severe flooding during the mid-September archery elk hunts, and more and more hunters applying to hunt the Gila Wilderness, San Francisco River Outfitters weathered the storm and our hunters produced 10 bulls with an average score of over 320 with a couple of 345+ bulls, a 363 bull and missed shots and opportunities at a couple of bulls ranging 380-400. Antler growth in the Gila Wilderness was better than expected last year. For 2014, things are wetter and hopefully with a good spring, we will have exceptional antler growth again.
