Colorado Antelope Hunting Outfitters - Guided Hunts
Antelope Hunts in Colorado
You will have the opportunity to hunt several private ranches (42,000 acres), we hunt our Pronghorn with spot and stalk tactics and strategically placed Pop-Up Ground Blinds over waterholes and stock tanks.
We enjoy a 100% Opportunity rate, with an average score of 78", we target mature bucks and bucks scoring 80". Jackson county boasts a large herd of Pronghorn, most of which migrate to lower elevations in Wyoming to escape the brutal winters that come to North Park every year.
Tags in our units are very tough to draw, in 2018 it took 16 points for both a Resident and Non-Resident to draw a license, but there are a limited number of landowner vouchers available to us, and due to the very limited draw in these units, there are some giant Bucks that inhabit the area! A large percentage of B&C and P&Y entries come from our units every year.
In order to have us apply for a landowner voucher, we require a hunt deposit of 50% of the hunt cost. On most years we can draw both archery, muzzle-loader, and rifle vouchers.
We only take up to 4 clients/year so make sure to book early, you WILL enjoy this hunt very much, so call us today to book!
This is also a great hunt to combo with our August/September Elk Hunts, hunt wapiti in the morning and afternoon, and pronghorn in the middle of the day...who needs a nap when you can have a full on adrenaline rush all day!!!!

We do require your 50% deposit in order to apply for the landowner voucher for clients. If we do not draw, we will move your hunt to the following year or refund the deposit if requested.
Do you help take care of my animal after it’s down?
Yes, our guides will gut the animal in the field. It will then be loaded up on our ranch equipment and taken to our skinning shed to be hung, skinned, and caped if applicable. We will also pull the ivory’s and clean them up so you can take them home with you. We will then help transport to our preferred partner processor in Walden CO, around 20 miles north of our lodge. If you are taking it home to have it processed, we will help quarter and pack your meat in your coolers or freezers.
Do you have a list of references I can talk to who have hunted with you before?
Yes, we will provide references upon request, and you can check out client reviews on our website home page. Scroll down to the bottom to find the reviews, and you can check out more reviews on our Facebook or Yelp pages as well.
What if I book a hunt and then need to cancel my pronghorn hunt?
We understand that life sometimes interrupts your plans. Because of our hunt schedule and Colorado’s license system, we most likely will not be able to move you to another date in the same year, however we do allow you to move your hunt to the following year provided that we are notified at least 60 days prior to your hunt start date, anything with-in 60 days of your hunt start date will not allow for any refunds or change in schedule.

How physically demanding are your hunts?
Moderate. Our hunts are not easy, but they are not hard either. What makes our ranches more difficult, it the elevation of 8,600 – 10,000 feet. Its not steep country, it’s more rolling hills with every habitat the west has to offer. Physically that can be an adjustment from sea level or lower elevations. Clients hunt open sage flats or waterhole blinds set up where the goats like to drink. Blind hunting can be long, hot & dry days, so a good book or a full cell phone battery is important to get you through the long days.
What kind of weather can I expect on my hunt?
The Rocky Mountains have some of the most torrent weather in North America, it could be 20 degrees in the morning, 70 degrees during the day, and drop to sub-freezing in the afternoon if a storm blows in. One thing is for sure, clients should be prepared for all seasons in one day!
