Just across the boarder in Southern Colorado Fishtail Ranch is outfitting Elk and Mule Deer Hunts in the Rio Grande National Forest units 80, 81 & 82. Fully guided hunts as well as Self Guided Drop camps are available. This is a real wilderness experience in excellent elk hunting areas.
We pack you and your gear in by horseback 2 to 6 hours beyond the nearest vehicle access point, to hunt well beyond most of the public land hunters. Our camps are by special forest service permit and fully equipped for Archery, Muzzleloader and Rifle Seasons. Both draw and over the counter seasons are available. See hunt dates and rates here or call anytime 575-588-7884 for additional information.
Our high altitude camps are great for September archery and the first three rifle seasons. While we primarily hunt elk our above timberline mule deer hunt is an excellent opportunity for trophy class mule deer.
Archery elk licenses are either sex - over the counter, 1st Rifle and Muzzleloader Elk seasons are a draw. NO Draw is required for 2nd or 3rd Rifle Elk Seasons. All mule deer hunts are draw; there is no additional charge to add mule deer to an elk hunt if you draw. We can help you with the draw system for deer, 1st Rifle Elk, and Muzzleloader seasons. (The draw deadline will be around April 1st)
