Southern Colorado Private Land Elk Hunt
Or Call: 1-800-346-8747
Southern Colorado is home to some of the finest elk hunting in the West. This large private ranch provides an unrivaled elk hunting experience with incredibly high elk numbers. The ranch spans from oak groves, ponderosa forests and meadows at 8,000 feet, through thousands of acres of aspen, to deep dark timber in the high country. These elk are part of the greater San Juan Basin herd, which is estimated at 20,000 animals. Several thousand elk spend the Spring through Fall on the ranch, calving in the meadows in June, summering in the high country, then descending to the lower elevations in the fall for the heavy rut. Both September archery hunts followed by October rifle hunts are offered, with high opportunities on both hunts at 6x6 bulls. The newly renovated historic ranch cabins are well appointed and comfortable, with private baths and daily housekeeping. This private ranch is one of the nicest ranches we have visited in the state. Early reservations are required.
