Northwestern Colorado boasts one of the largest elk herds in the world. Three Forks Ranch happens to be right in the middle of it. Our free-ranging herd swells to nearly 6,000 head in the Fall. Colorado’s Ranching for Wildlife program allows us to start hunting September 1 by any legal method. That’s right! We are hunting bull elk with a rifle during the rut. Usually reserved only for archery hunters, this rifle hunt is filled with bugling bulls, called in by our experienced, elk-hunting guides.

This is a license-guaranteed hunt. No draw.
