High hunter success on 5x5 and 6x6 bulls
This hunt takes place in southern Colorado in an area where there is a lot of private land that draws elk from nearby public parcels. This outfitter has about 18,000 acres under lease. His hunters consistently do well, taking mostly bulls in the 250 to 300 class along with a few bigger bulls with the rare specimen in the 340 to 360 category.
Most of the land is mountainous with some it in grassy valleys. Elk numbers are healthy in this unit, which has produced some trophy-size bulls as large as 396 in recent years.
A nice thing about booking a hunt here is that tags are easy to get. Elk tags are sold over the counter for the second and third combination rifle seasons and for archery season. You must apply for a tag to hunt during muzzleloader season and for the first and fourth rifle elk seasons.
