Northwest Colorado is considered one of the top destinations for elk and deer hunting in the world. Colorado also remains as one of the few states that still allow over-the-counter elk tags during the archery and rifle seasons.

Rifle serves as a gateway to Northwest Colorado hunting, with popular hunting destinations in all four directions from town. Quite possibly the most popular destination; however is the White River National Forest which is East by Northeast of Rifle and offers the largest elk herd in the world.

Photos below of successful elk, mule deer and black bear hunts, were
guided by Nine Mile Guest Ranch out of Meeker Colorado.
