Are you a Colorado resident with 9 or more preference points or a non-resident with 20 or more points? If so, this is an excellent hunt to use your points on. It isn’t uncommon for every hunter to get an opportunity at a 6 point bull.

Limited landowner vouchers are also available for hunters who do not have enough points to draw the tag. Openings are always limited so plan accordingly. Non-resident license fees are $661 for bull elk plus a $10 habitat stamp. Anyone born after January 1, 1949 must have a hunter education card to apply - Colorado accepts hunter education cards from other states. Application deadline for the limited licenses is the first Tuesday in April.

Hunts are conducted in archery, muzzleloader and rifle seasons. Guiding is listed at 3/1 but is normally 2/1 and adjusted as hunters tag out.

Hunting is done on both private and public land. Trucks are used to get to hunting areas and then hunting is by foot. If needed, horses are used to pack out elk.

Lodging is heated wall tents in archery, muzzleloader and 1st rifle season and then switches to a cabin in 2nd, 3rd and 4th rifle seasons. Four hunters are typically taken per hunt in archery and muzzleloader season and 6-7 per hunt in the rifle seasons.

Includes meals, lodging, guides, caping of elk.

5 Day Hunt - $5500 with drawn tag and $10,500 with landowner voucher
