Specializing in Coues Whitetail Deer, Goulds Turkey, and Pronghorn Antelope Hunts

For pricing and other information, contact Patrick using the form below

Coues Deer

Hunting Coues Whitetail Deer with PL Holehan’s Gone Huntin’ Outfitters takes you to the beautiful mountains of Sonora Mexico. The hunt takes place anywhere between 3,000 and 7,000 feet of elevation. You will find settings on the desert floor covered with saguaro, prickly pear, cholla, palo verde, and mesquite. On the upper elevation, you will find the hills and mountains scattered with oak, manzanitas, juniper, and pinion. In addition to Coues Whitetail, you may see Javalina, Coyote, Bobcat, Grey Fox, Coatimundi, and perhaps a Mountain Lion as well. Don’t be surprised if you flush Gambles, Elegant, or Mearns Quail.

You need to bring clothing you can layer as temperatures vary from the mid-20s to the 80s. Because shots can be long, a flat shooting rifle zeroed at 200 or 300 years is best. Many bucks offer shots at these ranges, but big bucks which are hard to get close to usually present longer shots. The Ranches we hunt are managed for Trophy quality bucks. As a result, the ranches hold bucks which qualify for the SCI and B & C books. Comfortable ranch house accommodations await you for your 5-day 6 night hunt. The ranch house has hot water, an inside bathroom, and comfortable beds with limited electricity. We have internet to serve your outside communications.  A variety of outstanding Mexican dishes with a hint of Americanization will be served in the morning and evening with lunches to carry into the field. When the opportunity presents itself you may even head back for one of our cook’s wonderful noon-time soups and a quick siesta.  The guides, having worked as cowboys, have an excellent knowledge of the ranches. Their eyes and hunting ability are superb. They can accommodate many needs in this 1-on-1 relationship. As an option, maximize your hunting experience by having us provide one of our hard-working packers who can carry as much of your gear as you desire, allowing you to stay fresh throughout the hunt. Don’t let your pride tire you out. Give it a try.

Goulds Turkey

There are few experiences that equal the excitement of working a mature Goulds Turkey gobbler during the spring mating season within shotgun or bow and arrow range. To the mountains of Sonora Mexico, you go with PL Holehan’s Gone Huntin’ Outfitters to pursue the Goulds Turkey. We will welcome you to the same comfortable ranches and ranch house accommodations we hunt Coues Deer in. Outstanding Mexican dishes with a hint of Americanizing will await you. This hunt begins early in the morning and you can head back to camp for lunch and a midday siesta, or carry your lunch and hunt throughout the day. Our success rate under typical conditions is usually 95% to 100%. You must come and try this desert-setting turkey hunt, an experience you will always enjoy remembering.

Pronghorn Antelope

Come hunt Pronghorn Antelope with PL Holehan’s Gone Huntin’ Outfitters. We hunt our Pronghorn Antelope Ranches primarily in Mideastern New Mexico at elevations between 4500 and 6500 feet. Some of our ranches will remind you of those wide-open, long-rolling hills of Wyoming. Others will show you a variety of plant life, such as juniper and oak. Don’t be surprised to find a big old buck in amongst a cholla patch and other high desert cacti. In this country, you may see mule deer, coyote, bobcats, foxes, and the occasional badger. On your three-day hunt, you will rarely be out of sight of Antelope. There will be one guide for two hunters. Our inclusive rights and good management practices give you the possibility of taking bucks which qualify for the SCI and B&C books. The average shot taken is between 150 and 300 yards, but come prepared for that occasional long shot at one of those big smart ole bucks. A no accommodation, 3 day, 2 on 1 guided hunt. You meet us at the gate before light and head out after dark. Roswell with many levels of accommodations is 60 miles south and Vaughn with minimal accommodations is 30 miles to the north. If desired, bring your optics and enjoy participating in your hunt. The temperature is warm this time of year, but don’t forget your rain gear.

“There are so many stories that I could tell about Pat’s rifles that I wouldn’t know were to begin! Hunting stories from Africa or Coues Whitetail in Mexico, but the most telling stories come from the rifle range. I am aware as to how unorthodox this sounds, but just bear with me and you will understand.

Both my father and myself have used Pat’s rifles for hunts on both continents, and we can both personally attest to their reliability and quality, but the confidence we have in his work comes from the results that  we have experienced on the rifle range! For over10 years we have known Pat as a custom rifle maker, and have trusted him to build rifles for us that allow us to be certain of taking shots that otherwise would seem impossible.

We have seen his guns make under half MOA 10 shot groups at 100 yards no matter the bullet construction (given they are the same weight) with every rifle he has built for us!
He has built for us 7mm REM MAGs, 300 WIN MAGs, 375 H&Hs and we have on commission a 6.5 Creedmore that we cannot wait to get our hands on!

Words are not enough to describe the level of quality Pat strives for when putting his masterpieces together! If you are on the fence, and are willing and able to spend the cost for one of his rifles, don’t even doubt it for a second! THEY ARE WORTH IT! And when we use the word MASTERPIECE, it’s not just used for the quality of his action and barrel work, because his stocks are what dreams are made of! It does not matter if it is a synthetic or incredibly gorgeous wood stock! Whatever he makes will be the gun you will always show of to your friends at the range or on the field!

Don’t think about it and commission a rifle for your next hunt!”

José Francisco Bours Jr

“I first met Patrick Holehan 25 years ago on an antelope hunt in New Mexico. My family and I have hunted with Patrick on numerous occasions for antelope in New Mexico. Patrick is an excellent judge of trophy quality bucks and extremely patient when glassing in order to attempt to get you the best Pronghorn possible. His area outside of Roswell has a very good population with a high percentage of mature bucks. Above all, I have found Patrick to be diligent in preparation and most of all extremely honest! I am looking forward to hunting with Patrick again soon.”

Mike Davis

“If you are attracted to top-of-the-line old school hunting rifles, the kind with fine walnut stocks, old world custom craftsmanship, and pinpoint accuracy, look no further than those built by Patrick Holehan. I’ve been in the outdoor and gun writing business since the late 1970s, and been around a lot of rifle builders, and Patrick is as good as they come. He builds everything from the ground up, taking great pride in his work, and will not settle for second best. His rifles are beautiful, reliable, and they shoot lights out. You will not be disappointed.”

Bob Robb

“The P in Patrick Holehan’s first name stands for perfection. Whether a recoil pad or a high-grade totally custom rifle, he delivers the same degree of thought and attention to the task. No, this is not a paid advertisement!  It’s true words from the benefactor of rifles that are as accurate as they are beautiful. Patrick is an outfitter/guide for Couse deer, and I have the memory of taking a record head with one of his rifles.”

Sam Fadala, Field Editor, GUNS MAGAZINE.

“As fine hunting rifles leave me weak-kneed, I leaned on the table when unboxing the Holehan-built .25-06. But I’m also critical of rifles that don’t measure up. So the checkering, wood-to-metal fit and Patrick’s integral scope bases got special scrutiny. I couldn’t find a flaw. Each diamond on the bolt knob was exactly like the next. No flat tops, no over-runs. The stock, cleanly checkered in a traditional point pattern, fit snug as the skin of a peach to the perfectly rust-blued steel. Its wrist was delightfully slender and open; the forend had just the right taper; the cheek-piece appeared cut from marble. Flats were flat, straight edges straight and evenly crisp. Each curve was properly a segment of a circle. Not a sanding mark remained. The rifle flew to cheek, aligning my eye instantly  with the Swarovski’s crosswire. Oh boy! And this was the “field” stock, of laminates, which I’d begged to spare the figured walnut injury on the mountain! At the range, the bolt slicked up cartridges and spilled empties without a hitch. Groups averaged just under an inch. Weeks later, as dawn brightened deer country, a buck slipped from the draw ahead of me and scooted up a ridge. It stopped at about 300 steps, peeked back over a rock. I had the top of its shoulder. Just enough. At the report, the deer collapsed, dead as it was still falling. My rack holds other fine rifles. None is more elegant or finely built than this Model 70 by Patrick Holehan. None has a keener nose for the target, or feels better in the crook of my arm.”

Wayne van Zwoll

“I’ve known Pat Holehan for decades. Our first adventure together occurred decades ago in Sonora, a successful Coues deer hunt that went off without a hitch. Over the years we have become good friends, hunting together many times for a variety of species, from doves and quail to deer and turkeys. When it comes to outfitting deer and Gould’s turkey hunts in Sonora, Patrick is as good as it gets. He speaks fluent Spanish, intimately knows the ins and outs of the paperwork required and how to cross the border quickly and easily, and has access to some prime ranches to hunt. His private land New Mexico pronghorn hunts are highly successful and well run, too. He’s an excellent glasser, and always has reliable and knowledgeable guides working for him. I look forward to my next adventure with Patrick and Gone Huntin’ Outfitters, and recommend him highly.”
