Colorado Ranching for Wildlife Elk Hunt


The Destination:  

No other state has an elk population as great as Colorado.  Nearly every herd is at an all time high.  There are many excellent regions to hunt in Colorado but one of our top picks is the large private ranches near Craig and Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  This hunt takes place on one of the top Ranching for Wildlife ranches in Colorado.  In fact, your hunt area consists of 18,000 acres of prime elk and mule deer habitat.

Our Outfitting Partner:

​For three years Into The Wild Adventures owner Jim Riley had the pleasure of guiding along side this first class outfitter.  Jim has been blessed to have hunted and fished all over the world and says this Into The Wild Adventures outfitting partner is one of the best he has ever met.  He tries to guide each hunt himself in order to ensure you the very best hunting experience he can offer.

The Hunt:

Remember you can hunt on a Colorado Ranching for Wildlife Ranch during the rut in September!  We have 6 of these hunts available.  Get up close and personal with the bulls.  Long range shooting is great for targets but why hunt animals that way?  Watch your guide as he calls in bulls to well under 100 yards!  Later in the season you will be hunting bulls that are residents of the ranch and also the huge number of migrating bulls that pile on to the ranch.

​This is a traditional spot and stalk hunt.  Most areas you can access with a 4×4.  After that you will be hunting by foot with your guide.  Your guide will do his best to call in a nice bull for you.  There are times when elk just won’t respond to the call.  In this case you will be spotting and stalking to within a range your comfortable with.
You can also combo this hunt with mule deer and or antelope.
In past years this hunt has produced a 90% success rate!

Food & Lodging:

You will be staying in a brand new quaint little cabin right on the outfitters property.  You will appreciate the hot shower after a long day of hunting!  All of your home-cooked meals are included.
