I have bow hunted for mule deer seven different times with this great Colorado Outfitter. It is one of my favorite hunts and I am looking forward to elk hunting with him on this ranch.” ~ Marc Warnke

Only eight elk hunters per year – two at a time, guided one on one.
The Walsenburg Ranch is located in Southeastern Colorado Eastern plains on the New Mexico border in rim rock canyon country, with river bottoms. At 6,000 feet these are low elevation trophy elk hunts in a semi arid region for 6×6 bulls scoring 300″+ topping out at 340″. Bulls are hunted in the rut with guaranteed landowner tags.

*This is an awesome rifle rut hunt, but not a great bow hunt as the terrain is very open.

Hunting Method
You will start early to be in the hunting area prior to first light. Hunting will be from trucks, Bad Boy Buggies and on foot to get to high points for glassing. Usually lunch is eaten back at camp as it is close to the hunting areas. Calling will also be done to locate bulls and then spot and stalk them from there. Physically, this is a super easy hunt, 6000 ft eleveation in rolly hilly, canyon country and most bulls are shot very close to vehicles. This is a great hunt for a handicap hunter.
