5 day Guided rifle and 6 day guided muzzleloader hunts and 6 day guided archery hunts  

Archery Hunts: Season date is October 1 - December 31.  Hunts are conducted anytime throughout the season, but mainly in November & December, with the exception of a couple of areas where hunts are good in October! All hunts are 6 days of hunting, some tags are valid for either specie, but only one deer.  Hunts are almost exclusively spot & stalk, with a few tree stand exceptions!
THESE ARCHERY TAGS ARE GENERALLY DRAWN WITH NO PREFERENCE POINTS, AND LANDOWNERS CAN PROVIDE A LANDOWNER VOUCHER IF NECESSARY!! Whitetail Only permits are  available. 

Muzzleloader: Hunts are all spot & Stalk, usually 6 days of hunting, and some tags are valid for either species.  Tags are generally drawn with 0-2 points, but in the SPECIALIZED TROPHY UNIT, THEY CAN BE DRAWN WITH NO POINTS! This hunt is a tremendous opportunity for a big buck, in a season that is under-utilized by hunters.

Rifle: Colorado has two separate rifle seasons on the plains.  This hunt is usually easier to draw, requiring 1-4 points depending on the unit! December rifle hunts will take 1-4 points to draw, depending on the unit. 

Please note, both seasons offer a whitetail only tag in several units.  We offer these hunts on several of the ranches with high whitetail populations, and the tags can usually be drawn with no points!!!

Trophy hunts require 25% down to reserve hunt date. An additional check for $362 is made out to GHR. This goes toward your preference point application draw. Draw has been over 95% for that upcoming season. If not drawn, clients receive the $362 back in June, less $28.00 application submittal fee. * subject to change. Some private landowner vouchers require a $500 additional fee.

In the unlikely event you are not drawn for that that season, the hunt will carry over to the next season at the same price, regardless of any price increases.

Archery, Muzzleloader & Rifle Management Hunts
These hunts are for big 3x3, 3x4 and other inferior muleys, plus 8pt, 9pt and other inferior whitetails.  We have shot numerous 8 pt whitetails over 160" B&C, and most of them will be in the 140-150" B&C range. Muleys will range from 160" - 180" B&C.

PLEASE NOTE: FOOD & LODGING FEES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN ANY OF THE MENTIONED HUNTS, THAT IS AT THE HUNTER’S EXPENSE!!!

We pack a lunch.
