Located in Game Management Unit 65 which is renowned for big mule deer, the ranch qualifies for the LPP (landowner preference program) for mule deer vouchers and has several OTC (Over-The-Counter) options for elk hunting licenses available too (call us for further details). Historically the owner harvests 6-8 elk per year. Don't discount the black bear hunting.there are some monster bears that come in to feed off the acorns! The animal densities are so good that the ranch can and does support a commercial hunting operation adding to the level of attractiveness of Cerro Summit Ranch.


FISHING

The fishing opportunities near Cerro Summit Ranch nearly rival the hunting opportunities. The Black Canyon is one of the most dynamic fly fisheries in the state. When the stonefly hatch begins in late spring, monster rainbow and brown trout gorge themselves making for an extremely exciting day of live water fishing! Additionally, the Blue Mesa Reservoir is located roughly 30 minutes to the east and holds the title of the largest body of water in CO. Not only is there great trout fishing in Blue Mesa, but there is also a healthy population of Kokanee Salmon you can catch both in the reservoir during the summer months and in the local tributaries during the fall salmon run. Don't discount the local streams either. There are lots of fisheries where you can land brook trout and cutthroats as well.
