September 2018 - Santa Barbara, CA
Mike & Chris are really good, honest, hard working, patient, down to earth people that not only know how to hunt very well, but they are the kind of people you just want to hang out with. As a California resident, an archery elk hunt on my bucket list for many years. I never thought I would actually do it, and I looked into it many times over the years. I finally decided it was time and I researched many outfitters that had flashy websites, but after speaking to them, I just wasn’t sure. After speaking to Mike, I knew he was the outfitter I wanted for my bucket list hunt. As he walked me through the draw process, I had a lot of questions and he patiently answered all of them. As for the hunting, their calling and tactics are as good as it gets. They had me in 25 yards or less shot opportunities three days in a row before the sun was even up and they spotted several bulls every day that were not bugling. I kept passing up nice bulls in hopes for a bigger one and on day four, I decided to take this one. Their care for the meat and the process after the kill were outstanding. Mike and Chris were total strangers when I arrived, but now they are friends for life and I cannot say enough good things about them on this short post. I wish I would have met them 10 years ago and I can’t wait to hunt with them again!
Archery - Weed, NM
10/10 experience. Accomodations-great. Food-good. Hospitallity-great. Amount of opportunities 10+. Mike was awsome. Great outfitter. It was the best hunt I've been on. And I've hunted all over. He had us on bulls everyday. I was being selective and could have tagged out on a bull at anytime. Would recommend highly. I will be back. Thanks Mike!
For a first time Muzzleloader draw Mike and the guys at Triple C were a help from the start. Mike was available for any questions our group had in regard to muzzle load hunting for elk. Great Guides, truly know the area. They work very hard to get the animal of your choice. Couldn’t have asked for anything better, I felt we came as a customer and left with new friends.
All my expectations were exceeded! We worked hard, but saw quality bulls every day, both morning and evening. The Triple C team was professional, friendly, and fun. Choosing an outfitter can be an overwhelming task. Which state? Unit? Outfitter? Weapon? Application Questions? If you are reading this and have these kind of questions, I recommend calling Mike Clifton at Triple C Outfitters. I am glad that I did!
I have dreamed of killing a big New Mexico bull elk all of my life. On the last day of the hunt, all our hard work paid off when I killed this beautiful NM bull. Mike and Chris worked hard every minute of the hunt to make sure my hunt was a special experience. I can't thank them enough for making my dreams come true.
I have hunted big game all over the world and I can say that Triple C Outfitters is in the top 1% of all outfitters I have ever dealt with. This is my 4th hunt with Mike and his crew and they never disappoint. On this hunt my flight into El Paso was delayed and it looked like I was going to miss the first day of my elk hunt. Not on Triple C's watch! Mike and his wife picked me up at the airport around midnight and we arrived back at the lodge around 3am. Two hours later, Mike had us hiking up a ridge in the dark to ambush a bull he had been watching. By 7:30 am on day 1 of the hunt I had my bull down. You simply won't find a better outfitter in NM.
I would like to take a moment to thank Triple C Outfitters. This was my dream hunt of a lifetime. Michael Clifton and his guides where outstanding. Accommodations and food where excellent. These guides will take the time to fit your needs. We were lucky enough for three Tennessee hunters to take home three beautiful elk. Thank you Michael and Triple C Outfitters for a hunt of a lifetime.
We had a great rifle hunt in October and were able to fulfill Pop’s lifelong dream of elk hunting. Special thanks to Triple C Outfitters, Michael & Belinda Clifton, Joey Paulk, Steve, and Clifford. Triple C is a top notch bunch and worked their tails off to make this a special/successful trip for us (3 hunters and 3 trophy bulls). I cannot say enough good things about them. They knew exactly where the elk were and how to get on them. I have dreamed of an elk hunt with my dad all of my life and they surpassed every expectation. They were there to assist with every need that us rookie elk hunters had from pre-trip gear and shooting advice to coaching us through the shots over our shoulders in the field. Further more, they are all genuine, good people and a pleasure to be around. If I could sum up Triple C Outfitters in one word it would be “professional”. Great job guys! I can’t wait to do it again. P.S. Belinda is an excellent cook!! Thank you.
We have finally found our New Mexico outfitter for life! Mike and Chris are passionate about what they do and it definitely shows. The ranch accomodations and food were fantastic. Quality and quantity of game was unbelievable. Every morning and evening of my hunt, we were right in the honeyhole with big toms all around us. I ended up taking a trophy Merriam on the last morning of the hunt. You will not be disappointed with Triple C Outfitters!
Absolutely great hunt from start to finish. Mike and Chris know their area and definitely do their homework. By the first morning of our hunt, I was tagged out with two trophy toms. Accommodations and food were excellent. Can't wait to get both my birds back from the taxidermists. Definitely coming back next year!
I was fortunate to harvest a beautiful Barbary Sheep ram on NM public land with Triple C Outfitters. Prior to the hunt, I talked at length with Mike Clifton as he patiently explained what to expect in camp (lodging and food) and while on the hunt (lots of walking and glassing). He listened intently to what I wanted in a ram, and how we collectively would reach our goal. There was never a doubt in his mind we'd achieve that goal; he knows the land, he knows there are great rams in the area for a patient hunter, and he knows he has awesome guides who can help hunters like me make my dreams reality. Shortly after starting our day a group of five rams was spotted by one of his guides, Oscar Medrano, from nearly 2 miles away. Once we ascertained there were three definite shooters in the group we charted the stalk and eventually closed the distance to 210 yards. With Mike and Oscar's expertise in field judging, we narrowed the top three rams to the one I shot...a ram that reached 30"!! This was truly a phenomenal hunt and I can't wait to go with Mike and his crew again!
Good times, awesome guides, and to top it off a great public land ram!! Highly recommend, can't wait to do it again!!
Epic time hunting turkeys in the high country with Mike and Chris. Mike called a big tom in and I smoked him at 25 yds on opening morning. Already booked for next spring, can't wait to do it again!
Within 20 minutes of sunrise on the 1st morning of the hunt, Mike and Chris called 3 bulls past me at under 35 yds. I let an arrow fly on the 3rd bull and hit perfect. By 10am my meat was packed off the mountain and hanging in the cooler. Best outfitter in New Mexico!

I've completed two Barbary sheep hunts with Triple C Outfitters. Both trips were fantastic. My buddy and I had a great time. Mike and his crew busted their asses to ensure we had a great experience. By the way, I also took two beautiful animals.
Fall 2013/Fall 2014
TRIPLE C OUTFITTERS, MIKE AND CHRIS WILL WORK HARD FOR YOU. I HAVE BEEN ON 2 GUIDED ELK HUNTS AND KILLED 2 GOOD BULLS. THEY PAY ATTENTION TO EVERYTHING AND WILL DO ALL THAT THEY CAN TO GET YOU A SHOT AT GAME, THE REST IS UP TO YOU. NOT JUST GREAT GUIDES, GREAT PEOPLE!
Mike and Chris made a lifelong dream come true finishing a turkey Grand Slam in one season. One of the two Merriam’s I harvested was a trophy tom we chased for three mornings finally taking him after crawling twenty yards on my belly in the snow.
Best outfitted hunt I have ever been on from start to finish! Honest, hard working outfitter with no surprises. The lodge accomodations were amazing, the food was top-notch and the quality of game and quides was unbelievable. Killed the biggest bull of my life on the 3rd day of the hunt.
I have been fortunate enough to draw 2 elk tags and 1 mule deer tag in 3 years of applying with Triple C Outfitters. If you are looking to hunt NM, look no further! Experience of a lifetime hunting with the hardest working NM outfitter, bar none!
Hunting with Triple C Outfitters was an experience of a lifetime. Mike and Chris really do their homework to put you on the biggest bulls in the area. Incredible hunt, incredible bulls, incredible outfitter. Can't wait to draw another elk tag!
