License and Season Information

Lay of the Land:

The property has road access with or without snow and 800 acres (about 1.25 miles by 1 mile) private land sits at about 8000' elevation, perfect for elk and deer. It has timber including junipers and aspen, parks and a creek and it's adjacent to national forest.  It has a place for horses or bring ATVs but best not to be driving around on them as you will spook game off the property.  It's best to use them for game retrieval.  The area surrounding you in most directions is the Uncompahgre National Forest.  You can park your horses, ATV or truck here and pick your place where you want to hunt every morning. Bring your maps, GPS and compass because this is a self-guided hunt.  Elk are bedded and secure where they are safe mid-day.  Snow is common depending on what season you hunt.  Snow is your friend after September because it makes the elk move and are more exposed.  Warm weather makes the elk bed during the day when you are hunting so they will be there but makes them difficult to find.  Best plan is find a high spot and glass before making a stalk.

3 minimum to 6 max.
