Colorado Archery Elk/Mule Deer Hunting
Colorado Archery Elk & Mule Deer Hunting:
- Late Aug.- Early Sept.
What We Offer:
- Two 5.5 day archery hunts starting late August to mid-September.
- Maximum groups of 6 hunters.
- No crossbows allowed during Archery Elk and Mule Deer.
Arrive the day before your hunt. A home cooked meal will be prepared that evening in the main lodge. Meals include a hot breakfast, lunches are prepared to take on your hunt and a hot meal is prepared after your hunt. At noon on the 6th day, your hunt will end.
The main lodge is where all of the home cooked meals are prepared and served as well as a place to visit with fellow hunters. Adjacent is private cabins for 2 hunters with private baths.
Weather conditions and terrain determine the hunting methods used during your hunt. The majority of Elk and Mule Deer hunting is from tree stands and ground blinds overlooking wallows, water holes, and travel corridors to and from Elk's bedding and feeding areas. Also, spot and stalk is optional. If your dream is to harvest a unique velvet Mule Deer buck in late August during the pre-rut, we have the ability to accommodate those dreams.
Weather conditions and terrain also determine the hunting methods used during your hunt. This hunt usually falls during the peak of the Bugling season so calling and spot and stalk is the preferred method for the Elk. It is still early for the Mule Deer rut so hunting from tree stands and ground blinds overlooking wallows, water holes and travel corridors to and from their bedding and feeding areas. If you wish to harvest an Elk and Mule Deet during the same hunt we have the ability to provide that opportunity.
Where Can You Buy a License?
Elk licenses can be purchased over the counter and all deer tags are by drawing only in April through the Colorado D.O.W. If you do not draw a Mule Deer tag for that area and season, we have the option to offer landowner that guarantee you receive a tag for the hunt you booked. Call us for additional information.
