Hunting

Elk Hunting Opportunities in Beautiful Colorado

We have the main lodge and cabins along with yurts where we feed and house our guests. Our guests will have a lite breakfast in the morning before the hunt, a full lunch before the afternoon hunt, and a home cooked dinner all served in the main lodge.  You will find snacks and sandwich items available to take before heading out for your day.

We hunt between 7,500′ and 9,300′ elevation.  Should you encounter less than favorable weather conditions, you will find stands and blinds strategically located for your use.

Our guide ratio is one guide to every 2 to 3 hunters.  Our local guides are very familiar with the ranch and will guide you to where the elk move through daily. Brush Mountain has a large population of resident elk, mule deer, and bear, as well as late season migratory animals during late rifle season. Northwest Colorado has one of the largest migratory elk herds in North America, so we have the opportunity to capture this migration in the fall.

The ranch will provide transportation to and from the field, as well as retrieval of your game. In addition, the ranch is complete with a walk-in cooler and meat-processing room.  Brush Mountain uses a local meat processor in Baggs, Wyoming (20 min away) to butcher and freeze your animal. The cost of processing your meat is not included in the hunt fee.

If you are interested in booking an Archery or Muzzle Loader hunt on Brush Mountain, please contact the lodge and we will help you put together an exciting early autumn hunt.

Tips for Archery Hunters: On the ranch, your average shot is between 25 and 30 yards, so we suggest you become proficient for shots at those distances. We also encourage all hunters to prepare physically for work at high altitudes (between 7,000 and 9,500 feet).

Rules, Regulations & Licensing

Brush Mountain Outfitters believes in fair chase ethical hunts, and the better prepared you are the more you will enjoy your hunt. Please read the Colorado Department of Wildlife (DOW) rules and regulations at www.wildlife.state.co.us. Licenses can be purchased online prior to the start of the season, or over the counter upon your arrival in Colorado. The first and fourth season are draw only; with the second and third season you are able to purchase a license over the counter. Deer tags can be purchased two ways – one through the second and third seasons by draw only, and the other is through Brush Mountain Outfitters, but they have to be reserved ahead of time since they have limited availability. Deer hunting is only allowed in the second and third season.

Two important rules are that you have to have a total of 500 square inches of hunter orange on your head, chest, and back (camouflage orange is unacceptable), and if you were born after January 1, 1949, you must have a hunter safety card.

Note: State of Colorado kill tag is not included Fishing in Northern Colorado streamsin our hunt fees. Purchase is the hunter’s responsibility.
