Whitetail Hunting in Colorado’s Eastern Plains
Colorado’s Eastern Plains, while well-known for big mule deer, has also been producing some of the countries’ highest-scoring whitetails over the past several years. The pictures here are proof that, with the right outfitter, the Eastern Plains of Colorado is certainly capable of pushing-out the whitetail of your dreams. In fact, this outfitter boats that a deer in the 150 class is almost automatic and that hunters typically have a roughly 25% chance at a buck in the 170’s – just amazing! The best deer taken on this whitetail hunt taped-out at an incredible 212 inches. The genetics are here and with this outfitter only hosting 4 whitetail hunters per season the pressure is low. This recipe, great genetics and low hunter pressure, allow the deer to reach their full potential. Hunting is done from tower blinds along with spot & stalk methods on exclusive private property consisting of irrigated crop fields with bedding areas in draws and adjacent sand hills. Lodging and meals are included in a nice ranch house near the property. It typically only takes one Colorado deer preference point to draw this “whitetail only” tag for this fully guided, 1x1 hunt. With only 4 whitetail hunts available per year - early booking is essential. Add Colorado whitetail to your WTA TAGS whitetail portfolio today.
“The WTA TAGS office, located in Sidney, NE, is just minutes from the border of eastern Colorado. The whitetails I see coming out of the Eastern Plains are absolutely magnificent. This remote, agricultural mecca is truly a whitetail paradise. I personally consider places like Iowa, Kansas & Canada to have nothing on the Eastern Plains of Colorado when it comes to seeking out the whitetail-of-a-lifetime.”
