Colorado Elk Hunts on a Private Ranch
Guaranteed Colorado Elk Hunts on Private land on the Fisher Mesa.
We have tags for these elk hunts for Colorado’s 1st rifle elk season as well as the 2nd rifle season.
- 1st Rifle Season: You will see bulls with and without cows as they are coming to the end of the rut. However, they are usually more responsive to the calls. Expect to do a lot of stalking and some sitting during this season. The 1st rifle season has a slightly higher opportunity rate.
- 2nd Rifle Season: The rut is winding down now, but you will still hear a few bugles. This hunt is mostly spot-and-stalk, but you may do some sitting.
*If you’re a bowhunter, we also have archery hunts available on this ranch.
The neat thing about this ranch is that it holds a good number solid 6 x 6 bulls. But what truly makes it special are the few monster, world class bulls it holds every year…” ~ Marc Warnke
