I just got a call from one of our Colorado Elk Outfitters who just had 3 spots open up for the 3rd Colorado Rifle Season of November 3-11, 2012. These are last minute cancellations, so he is willing to let them go for only $2,500 each plus licenses. To sweeten the deal, you can harvest a black bear for no trophy cost. (This is less than the costs of most Canada bear hunts alone plus you get hunt elk too.) You just have to buy the bear tag which is available over the counter. Bulls should average in the range of 240 to 280 with the occasional 300+ taken.
Non-Resident Colorado Elk Tag is $576 and a Black bear tag is $351. If you were born after 1/1/1949, you will need a copy of your state hunter safety card when you buy your license. There are just 3 of these deals left on a first come first serve basis. Call Rick Kennerknecht at 888-850-HUNT (4868), Extension 702 to reserve your spot.
