About hunting in Colorado

Colorado is an elk hunter’s paradise. It is a high, rugged, mountainous state, the only state in the U.S. that lies entirely above 3,200 feet elevation. The eastern part of Colorado consists of high plains, which are a mix of prairie, forests, buttes, and canyons, much of it covered in farms and ranches. The western half of Colorado is covered by the southern Rocky Mountains. Colorado contains some of the most mountainous country in the U.S., including some 53 peaks that are 14,000 feet or higher in elevation above sea level, known as fourteeners. These mountains are largely covered in conifer forests and aspen stands, providing a haven for elk and other wildlife. Colorado has more elk than any other state, and is one of the few places where hunters can buy elk licenses over the counter for certain units and seasons, without applying in advance, which makes it a popular destination for do-it-yourself hunts and last-minute bookings for outfitted hunts. Over-the-counter licenses are often also available for archery pronghorn hunts and in certain units for white-tailed deer. Most other hunting licenses are issued through a drawing. Besides elk, huntable game in Colorado includes white-tailed deer and mule deer, moose, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, mountain lions, and black bears. The world-record typical mule deer, which scored 226 4/8, was shot in Colorado in 1972. Upland birds and waterfowl are also popular draws for hunters. To buy a hunting license in Colorado, you’ll be required to show your hunter’s safety card. Colorado hunters are also required to wear 500 square inches of blaze orange. Specific regulations and more information about Colorado hunting is available through Colorado Parks & Wildlife: http://cpw.state.co.us/thingstodo/Pages/BigGame.aspx.

Dry Ground Mountain Lion Hunt '21

Dry Ground Mountain Lion Hunt '21 United States

We are looking for a couple of hunters interested in a wilderness mountain lion hunt on horseback. Late spring when the winter snows have started to clear and we are able to access a large roadless area in eastern Utah that seldomly gets hunted. This hunt would include riding horses and mules through remote canyons in search of big cats. Lodging will be a private bed, bath, and living quarters while staying at the ranch. We will also be staying several nights in a wall tent camp located deep in the roadless country. Camp will have all the luxuries we need for a comfortable stay. From camp we can ride multiple canyons free casting the hounds and covering a large area searching for your cat. In the past we have had 75% success harvesting tom lions. This hunt is directed towards guys looking for an above average adventure. Horse riding can make this hunt a bit more physically demanding than our standard mountain lion hunts. Feel free to give us a call and we can discuss this or any of our other options in further detail. Last spots available: March 22-26, 2021 April 5-9, 2021 April 19-23, 2021
