Colorado Guided Elk Hunts
You will have the opportunity to hunt on a private ranch, Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest or US Bureau of Land Management. All hunts are fair chase in some of the most strikingly beautiful country. "If I am lucky enough to go to heaven, I hope it's half as pretty as this country in the fall", Doug Spencer.
The pressure from hunters on public land helps move the elk to the safety of the private land where the majority of our hunting takes place. Our properties include dark timber which the elk love for rutting, aspen groves, willows and natural/agricultural grass meadows. All of which are great habitat for elk, moose, deer and antelope. To round it out there are three creeks and various ponds throughout the property.
The elk herd size in North Park is around 6000 and growing. Ratio of almost 30% bulls to cow elk, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife studies show this ratio is increasing. Your opportunity for a bull elk is significantly higher on private land than public lands throughout other parts of Colorado. In 2018, studies showed that the harvest success rate for all elk across the state was around 18%, in the last five years our success rate has been above 60%.
