Not only will you have the advantage of owning 376 acres where elk and mule deer seek refuge from the pressure of hunters on the abutting BLM and STATE WILDLIFE AREA.
While exploring the property during the middle of the day I encountered elk and mule deer just a short walk from the cabin. Numerous elk and deer sign were discovered; trails, elk carcasses and an elk shed. This ranch is in Colorado Game Unit 23 and over the counter game licenses are available for 2nd & 3rd rifle seasons. Either sex elk licenses for private land only are available through the draw for 1st season rifle hunters, archery, and muzzle loader. Unit 23 is liberal in allocating either sex private property elk tags, providing significant opportunities for residents and nonresidents to draw either sex elk tags with zero to one preference points. The availability of Mule Deer tags is another bonus! Preference point requirements are zero to one point to possibly draw a tag. OAK RIDGE WILDLIFE RANCH located in GMU 23 is a major advantage for residents & nonresidents in the odds of drawing elk and mule deer tags vs other properties located throughout the state.
