September – November
(4.5 day hunts)
Northwest Colorado elk and deer hunting at its finest on 25,000 private acres of picture perfect big game habitat. This part of Colorado is home to one of the largest elk herds in the country and you get to hunt these bulls during the September rut all the way through to December when large herds migrate through the ranch! This Ranching For Wildlife property means licenses are guaranteed and you can hunt with any legal weapon of choice (rifle, muzzleloader, bow). Past hunters have encountered an average of 20-50 elk a day on these hunts with a high success on 4×4 up to 6×6 bulls. Some great mule deer hunting is also available and can be combined with an elk hunt! Elevation ranges from 6,250′ – 9,000′. Method of transportation is 4×4 vehicles and/or Polaris ranger type vehicles to access the property where you and your guide will then hunt by foot. A very comfortable lodge, located on the ranch, will be your home away from home for the week. The lodge features four bedrooms, two very large restrooms, dining area, great room, bar, and deck overlooking the property.
