September – November
This family-run outfit in northwest Colorado takes a limited number of hunters on their ranch each season. They have about 6,000 acres of some of the most picture perfect big game habitat in the West. Northwest Colorado is known for its abundance of wildlife and these properties are home to a healthy population of elk and mule deer. In fact, this part of Colorado is home to the highest density of elk in the country and the success rate here is second to none on rifle and archery hunts. The moderate terrain and private land is easy to navigate and the guides here can cater to any hunter’s physical ability. Combo elk and mule deer hunts are also available on a limited basis! You and your guide will access the property in 4×4 pick-ups or side by sides glassing the country. Then, the stalk is on! Strategically located blinds and tree stands are also located along the numerous hay fields, river bottom, and water holes and are a very effective way to hunt during the archery season. It’s not uncommon to have multiple opportunities on the game you’re pursuing. The fourth season elk hunt can be incredible with large numbers of migratory elk moving through this area. These fully guided hunts include great accommodations and western hospitality. The 3-bedroom lodge & 2 full bathroom lodge sleeps up to six hunters comfortably. Once your tag is filled you can enjoy some incredible trout fishing on one of the ponds or in the Yampa River. Give WTA a call to learn more and secure one of these high success hunts.
