Guided Colorado Mule Deer and Elk Hunts

To insure a successful hunt, please read our "Hunting Tips"!
We hunt mornings and afternoons, with all three meals served family style in the ranch house. We provide all of the transportation needed while hunting, most of which is done by 4x4, ATV, or on foot. The weather can be changeable in Colorado; so layering is a good idea, while some really warm clothes need to be available in case of a sudden squall. Our goal is to provide excellent service to our hunters, as well as an exclusive hunting opportunity. We house our clients in one of two cabins on the ranch. Both provide shower and toilet facilities.

Things to Remember:

ALL deer licenses are obtained by application
First and fourth season Elk licenses are obtained by application
Bull Elk licenses for second and third seasons are available over the counter.
Application deadline is the first Tuesday in April.

Muzzleloader and Archery Hunts

There has always been a good-sized herd of resident elk and mule deer in the area. The hayfields and meadows provide forage for them and we see them, (especially deer) grazing throughout the day. Does and fawns are most frequently seen, with the more wary and wiser bucks waiting until later in the afternoon to show up.

In past years, muzzleloaders have been very successful on the ranch. Since September of 2004, we also found that to be true of archery hunters. We take a limited number of archery and muzzleloader hunters, and are pleased with the success of these hunters and are looking forward to future hunts.

Muzzleloader licenses are obtained by application only.
Archery elk licenses can be obtained over the counter.
Archery deer are obtained by application only.
Application deadline is the first Tuesday in April.

We should clarify that Archery elk licenses can be obtained over the counter as a private land only either sex tag, bull tags only through the draw.

Cow Elk Hunts

Cow Elk hunting in GMU 12 has undergone changes due to Wildlife Commission objectives. However, tags will still be made available for the October/November cow hunt. Those tags are available through the draw as private land tags. Application deadline for the draw is the first Tuesday in April. Leftover licenses for this hunt can usually be purchased on a first come first serve basis after August 12th through the Division of Wildlife.

Note: Our elk and deer hunts take place primarily on private land. We include the following disclosure to comply with BLM regulations - "All or part of this operation is conducted on Public Lands under special permit from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management."

We look forward to your visit.
