Brian Palmer from Palmer Outfitting just asked us to drop up a quick post on some last minute deals that he has for summer depradation hunts he has on private ranches in Colorado. These are July Guided Private Land Bull Elk Hunts for Bulls in Full Velvet for $2,000 plus license and food. Tags and license for nonresidents are $546.00 and residents are $51.00 They have 2 great meat processors in the area and a good taxidermist in the valley.
Brian states that most bulls are going to be 5×5’s and 4×4’s but he has seen several 6×6’s over the past several nights. The average bull is going to be between 200 and 300 with the occassional bull between 300 and 380 with NO TROPHY FEES..
All hunts are on private land but are fair chase hunts, they are not high fenced. Hunts are on valley floor at 8000′ elevation, no need to climb mountains. Hunts are mostly spot and stalk similar to caribou hunting on the tundra of alaska but easier walking and no bears!
They have lots of elk and typically see between 100 to 500 or more elk during a hunt.
Last year They had 100% shot opportunity. They also have the same hunts for hard horned elk from August 15 to December 31 for $2,500.
