Rocky Mountain Ranches, Ltd. is very excited to offer our clients a very limited number of Ranching for Wildlife hunts each year. These RFW hunts can offer a truly unique hunting experience. Our Ranching for Wildlife property is located in the high desert terrain of Colorado unit 3 in Moffat County. Moffat county is well known for its amazing antelope genetics as well as its great concentration of mule deer. But, did you know this high desert can offer some amazing elk hunting during the late seasons? This particular RFW property is truly a gem of Northwest Colorado’s high desert. This high desert terrain can appear to be a desolate environment at first glance. Once you get into the property, you will find it is a beautiful ecosystem that is abundant with wildlife. Small draws and creases give way to larger canyons holding beautiful spring fed ponds and water holes. Brushy hillsides and very old sage offers great bedding areas. In addition to our natural water sources, our ranch has a intricate system of solar powered wells that fill underground storage tanks and supply water to additional areas of the ranch.
Ranching for Wildlife Elk Hunts
This high desert terrain is a major travel corridor for elk migrating down from the majority of Northwest Colorado’s high country. The majority of this migration occurs after the major rifle seasons and that is why most hunters will never get to hunt the peak of this spectacular migration. Because of our special RFW seasons, we get to hunt these migrating elk well after the major rifle seasons and truly optimize your hunting experience. As with all of our hunts, it’s the concentrations of critters that make these hunts so successful. As indicated by the Colorado Hunting Atlas on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website, our RFW property is located directly in the Elk Winter Migration Corridor, the Elk Winter Concentration Area, and the Elk Winter Range. These are elk that spend most of the year living at high elevations in nearby mountain ranges and often includes big old bulls that live in the deepest darkest high country places. This allows us to hunt a great concentration of elk in a moderate high desert terrain and is why we see such excellent success on this elk hunt.
Guided Ranching for Wildlife Hunts
Rocky Mountain Ranches, Ltd. will be offering a very limited number of guided hunts. Our courteous and knowledgable guides will pick you up in the morning and take you out on your hunt each day. There will be one guide for 2-3 hunters. Food and lodging is not included in the price of this hunt. Our goal is to provide each client with a fun and enjoyable hunting experience. Our guides do not focus on trophy hunting and instead will help you find a decent mature animal.
Guided RFW Elk Hunts - $4,900 Per Person
(Prices do not include: State License Fee, Lodging, Food)
Non-Guided Ranching for Wildlife Hunts
Rocky Mountain Ranches, Ltd. has specialized in offering non-guided, private land hunts since 1995. Our non-guided hunts have drawn much attention over the years and makes Rocky Mountain Ranches, Ltd. what it is today. As always, our goal is to offer the best properties we can at a reasonable price, and the non-guided format allows us to do so. Many of our non-guided clients find that it is a more rewarding experience to do it themselves. These non-guided Ranching for Wildlife hunts are offered in the same basic format as our standard, non-guided private land hunts. We will meet you prior to your hunt to have a safety meeting and take a tour of the ranch while discussing the property boundaries, animal patterns, and hunting strategies. Detailed topographical maps are provided to get you started on your hunt.
Non-Guided RFW Elk Hunts - $3,800 Per Person
(Prices do not include the cost of your hunting license)
