Colorado Private Land hunting

Our Colorado Ranch offers the Do It Yourself hunter a great and rare opportunity to hunt private land with great access to BLM and National Forest through our land. The private land makes it very difficult for outside hunters to gain access to these lands. We do not do any guiding.

Our hunts are in unit 42 of Colorado. ALL Mule deer tags in Colorado are a DRAW HUNT. You can usually draw this unit for mule deer, but its not guaranteed. Elk tags can be over the counter, however muzzle loader elk, and rifle first season are draw hunts for elk. All our hunts are for either species or combo. You can hunt one or both for the same price.

We offer an amazing 5 star lodge, all food and non-alcoholic beverages provided. Our food is fantastic and we will cater to your dietary needs. Our lodge is unlike any other place you have had the pleasure of staying in. You will honestly be so comfortable some days you will have to force yourself to go hunting instead of relaxing in the lodge. We have 4 private individual bedrooms, TVs in the lodge, a bar where you can bring your own beverages to drink at the 5 o’clock saloon, Wi-Fi and anything else you can imagine.

Our property has over 1000+ private acres in the beautiful area of Rifle, Colorado. The property is 15 minutes out of Rifle, CO. We are one hour east of Grand Junction and 3 hours west of Denver. The property is mountain timber, juniper / cedar thickets, and agricultural fields. The mature bulls range from 220-310+. The applications are due in April, please check to make sure so you can apply for the appropriate tags.



  • The elk hunts are mostly spot and stalk and some calling depending on area. We know the land well enough to give you good information on their travel routes and places to best hunt them. You can expect to see ranges from 230-320+. These are the caliber of elk you can expect to harvest.
  • All archery elk hunts are for 6 nights / 7 days. You can arrive any time after 10:00 A.M on the day of the hunt and hunt that evening; you will hunt 5 full days, and hunt on the morning you leave. We ask that you try to be out of the house by 4:00 P.M on the afternoon of your departure. To ensure our next Guests a clean and presentable staying quarters.
