Hunting Trips in Colorado

Did you know, the hunting land acreage in Colorado is the same size as the entire state of Indiana? With so much open space, the hunting opportunities are vast…but it’s not just empty terrain. Colorado is surrounded by scenic views, mountains and beautiful greenery, making a Colorado hunting trip one of beautiful vistas that really make you appreciate nature’s intrinsic beauty.

The Elk Are Amazing, Too

Colorado is renowned for having some of the best elk in North America, including elk with the largest antlers among all subspecies. In addition to their antlers helping them serve as great trophies, Colorado elk also provide amazing meat. Not only does it have a great taste and texture, but it’s also low in fat and cholesterol but high in protein, vitamins and minerals, making it a nutritious and delicious option.

In addition to elk hunting, deer hunting in Colorado is also quite popular and provides hunters with ample opportunity.

Hunting Helps With Animal Control

The state of Colorado is dependent on hunting to help limit the populations of big game animals, such as elk. Thanks to hunting seasons, these animals do not grow beyond the means of the habitat. When that happens, they are more prone to disease, hunger and other hardships. Hunting is good for the state and the ecosystem!
