Since 1995, Rocky Mountain Ranches, Ltd. has specialized in offering non-guided, do-it-yourself hunts for elk, mule deer and antelope in Northwest Colorado.
Our goal is to offer affordable options for the outdoorsman to hunt on some of Colorado's finest private ranches. By keeping hunting pressure to a minimum, our private ranches can provide a significant advantage over hunting on crowded public lands. This has been our mission for the past 20 years and has resulted in high client retention and expanding popularity.
Now, most people might think that hunting on a large private ranch would be too expensive. By maintaining a low overhead and offering non-guided hunts, we can offer our services at a much lower price than you might expect. With multiple private ranches to choose from, you can choose the terrain and hunt that you are really looking for. Before your hunt starts we will take you on a tour of the property, provide maps, site safety training and then get you started on your adventure.
Focus your hunting dollars on what is most important....the quality piece of land you will be hunting on. Call us today to find out which ranch is right for your group.
This really nice bull was taken during the 3rd rifle season this year!
This picture is taken from the top of one of our smaller 1000 acre elk ranches. Another one of our ranches can be seen in the distance. Its about to get hit by some weather coming in.
Our "Moderate Elk Ranches" offer great elk hunting without the difficulty of our more rugged, "High Country Ranches". You can choose the ranch that is right for your group.
This nice lope was taken this year on one of our "High Desert Ranches". The mild terrain, good vehicle access high deer and lope concentration makes these our most successful hunts. Contact us to inquire about land owner voucher availability.
We hunted with Joe in September on an archery elk hunt and had a 50% success rate with archery gear on bull elk. Two of the four of us are experienced bow hunters, but it was all of our first archery elk hunts. One of the unsuccessful guys missed a makeable shot on a nice cow elk. Joe did exactly what he said he would when he said he would and in this day and age I found that very refreshing. The hunt was everything and more than we were expecting
Thanks for your info. Some of my friends and I are going the first week of season. Did you see many mule deer we are planning on applying for tags also. A couple of us have been bow hunting for quite some time. Also did you guys hunt waterholes ,spot and stalk or call as this will be all are first time archery elk hunting. Thanks again.
Thanks for the info. Some of us are going to try for a deer tag just in case. We are hunting a 4000 acre ranch that is moderate to high with four blinds on waterholes. There's alfalfa a field on the neighbors property hoping to catch deer or elk coming to or from them. What was the weather like out there. We are going to be staying in outfitter tents. Also are there any meat lockers to have them processed quickly or will we have to bring lots of ice.
We hunted the "moderate" ranch the last two years and will be returning archery this year. It was an over the counter either sex archery (unit 13) and we were able to draw 4th season rifle last year with out a problem. All six hunters on the ranch last year filled their late season tags.
