Northern Colorado Private Land Elk Hunts

Description

This 20,000+ acre northern Colorado ranch offers an elk hunt like nothing you’ve ever experienced. The property varies greatly, at lower elevations you will find irrigated crop pivots surround by rolling prairie that leads up to foothills and canyons. Throughout the ranch very few trees are present making it very easy to spot elk as they filter through the waist to chest high brush. Resident herds of elk, deer, and antelope can be found year round on the ranch with an influx of migrating deer showing up in late October each year.

The track record of successful hunts on this ranch is second to none. Hunters have experienced 100% shot opportunity over the last few years regardless of weapon choice. Archery, muzzle loader, and 1st rifle hunts will utilize a mixture of spot and stalk techniques as well as calling. Bulls tend to readily respond to calling on the ranch which makes for a truly exciting hunt during the rut timeframe. During the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rifle season one can expect to glass vast amounts of country, once a suitable bull is found a stalk will be planned to get to a suitable shooting position. If your intention is to have a phenomenal elk hunting experience and harvest mature five or six point bull, this hunt is perfect for you!

Combination hunts for elk and mule deer are available during all seasons but are extremely limited. Prime dates for combo hunts have historically been during early archery season or the 3rd and 4th rifle seasons as a large influx of migrating mule deer tend to work onto the ranch. Taking great representatives of both species is very realistic during a five day hunt.

Lodging consists of a basic but ample three bedroom, two bathroom house located on the ranch. A full time cook will be present to provide three delicious meals a day. Bulls will often times be heard bugling and occasionally spotted right from the lodge.

Licenses can be drawn for elk and deer with 0 preference points making this a very simple hunt to plan. If you are saving preference points please inquire on available landowner vouchers.
