Hunts Available

Note: All deer licenses are by drawing only; application due early April.
We employ one guide for every two guests, but one-on-one guided hunts are available for an extra fee.

Deer Hunts

Early in the season we hunt mule deer in their summer range. As the deer migrate down, we’ll hunt our lower ranches. Our success on trophy mules is exceptional, with several bucks over 25″ taken every year. We conduct drives, walk, and set points where the game will cross.  Typically, Colorado Trophies produces over 75% success.

Archery Deer
This hunt takes place in the mule deer’s summer range, at altitudes from 7,000 to 11,500 feet. We hunt from ground blinds as well as spot and stalk, depending upon the weather conditions.

Muzzleloader Deer
This is much like our archery hunts, with one major exception: a muzzleloader can shoot a lot farther than a bow. This is an ideal for those who don’t like to hunt with a bow but enjoy being in the woods at this delightful time of year. Muzzleloader permits are by draw only, with the application deadline in early April.

Rifle Deer
Depending upon the season and weather conditions, we will hunt from the deer’s high summer ranges down to our lower ranches. Typically, Colorado Trophies produces 75% success, with several mule deer in the 25″ to 30″ range taken by our hunters.

Elk Hunts

Colorado Parks and Wildlife point restrictions and limited drawings over the past several years have helped our elk herd grow to over 230,000 animals. With our hunting units consistently producing among the top in the state, your chances of harvesting a representative elk are very good. Each year our hunters take several 6 x 6 bulls, some in the 300 class range. Our success ratio normally exceeds 60%. We tailor hunts specifically to the needs of the archer, muzzleloader, or rifle hunter.

Archery Elk
To bugle in a wild-eyed bull within shooting distance is one of the world’s greatest hunting thrills. We hunt on foot bugling them in during the rut.  There is nothing like bugling in an aggressive bull. Our guides are quite skilled in coaxing big bulls within range. It helps to be in good shape for this hunt. We have had great success with our archers, typically achieving 60%+ opportunity and 30% + kill rates.

Rifle Elk
Colorado’s elk herds in the units we hunt are within the Colorado Parks and Wildlife targeted goals.  In our DMU, Unit 70 hosts around 60% of the big game animals. Typically our hunters achieve over 60% success, taking several 6×6 bulls. Obviously, your chances of taking a representative bull are good.
