This hunt has produced many bulls over 340 B&C inches, in fact, in years of good moisture, the average score across all hunts typically far exceeds this score. Expert 1x1 guide service, premium private land in one of Colorado’s best elk units, modern log cabin accommodations and superb meals - round-out to make this one of WTA TAGS top recommendations for big bulls in Colorado.
