Elk Hunting Ranch

Colorado is blessed with many large and beautiful National Forests that allow public hunting. Hunting pressure on the National Forests pushes more game to the private property that Bear Mountain Outfitters operates on, resulting in even larger elk herds during the Colorado hunting seasons. Bear Mountain Outfitters’ elk hunting begins with the Colorado elk archery season in late August/early September. We offer four 4-day/5-night guided bow elk hunts. Our rifle elk hunting seasons are 5-day/6-nights during each of the Colorado rifle seasons.

Our expert hunting guides carefully manage our elk hunts, which are limited to six hunters per season. All hunts are guided, two hunters to one guide. Our excellent chef prepares three meals a day; snacks and beverages are also included. Grizzly Cabin provides the uniquely rustic gathering place for meals and camaraderie. Separate cabins provide warm, comfortable sleeping quarters. Late rifle season hunters have the option of staying at our Arapahoe Lodge.

Licenses are required for all hunts. Please refer to Colorado Parks and Wildlife for all big game hunting requirements.

However, a few important items include:

  • Bear Mountain Outfitters operates in Colorado game management units 17 and 181.
  • All persons born on or after January 1, 1949, must have a hunter’s safety card.
  • 500 square inches of daylight fluorescent orange (essentially a vest and hat) are required when hunting with a firearm.
