Trophy Colorado Elk Hunts


Colorado is home to the largest elk population in the world, and our hunting area is famous for its extraordinary elk, deer, and antelope hunting. Located in the Craig-Steamboat Springs area of northwestern Colorado, Rocky Mountain Ranches manages hunting properties that offer varying types of hunting terrain, from heavily forested elk habitat to rolling sage-dotted countryside where mule deer and antelope abound. Surrounded by beautiful Colorado scenery, you might want to spend some of your time taking pictures.


Clients may camp on the ranch or stay in nearby motels. If you want to camp but don't have the necessary camp gear, we can provide you with our deluxe big game hunting outfitters' camp. All you will need to bring is your bedroll, your personal gear including your weapon, and your food (minimum of 3 hunters in same party to book optional camp). We also can provide a comfortable camper trailer for groups of 2-3 hunters.

We will meet you the day before your hunt starts, provide you with topo maps, show you the property, and help you plan your hunting strategies. For archery antelope hunters, we do provide pre-set blinds at scouted waterholes. By the way, we recommend 4-wheel drive vehicles; and ATVs are welcome. However, all vehicle travel is restricted.

Since may of our hunters are returning year after year, we recommend that you reserve your hunt as early as possible. We can provide first-timers with a list of references on request.
