Colorado Unit 20 Elk Hunt by Rocky Mountain National Park

Outfitter #374
Rifle, Archery, Muzzleloader

Archery: September

Muzzleloader: Mid-September

Rifle: October, November/December, January

Hunt big bull elk in Colorado’s unit 20, by Rocky Mountain National Park. This region is managed for a bull-to-cow ratio of 45 bulls to 100 cows and consistently produces bulls in the 300 B&C to 350 B&C class. Every year a few top-end bulls scoring over 350” are taken by lucky hunters. You will hunt a mix of private land and the surrounding National Forest. Hunters need to be in good physical condition as this is a true mountain elk hunt. Our outfitter has excellent equipment, and based on weather, you may be hunting from horse, ATV, 4×4 pickup and, of course, be prepared for some old fashioned hiking. Accommodations vary by season but typically consist of modern cabin or ranch house services. With only 20-total tags available per hunt date, five being allocated to non-residents, you will need to book your hunt early. Since Colorado is a true preference point state, many hunters book a couple years in advance.
