Shoot me a message with your email address and I will put in touch with the consultant handling these hunts (he is a CO guide as well) and the outfitter.

Reduced price to fill their remaining spots. The outfitter has a very high opportunity rate on bulls during archery season with over six thousand private acres for guided hunting. Meals and lodging are not included but you will be based out of the town of Rifle CO, which has numerous options for camping or lodging. Dates: September 2, 2024 – September 6, 2024 / September 9, 2024 – September 13, 2024 / September 15, 2024 – September 19, 2024 / September 20, 2024 – September 24, 2024 / September 26, 2024 – September 30, 2024 / Pricing: 5-Day, 2x1 Guided Archery Elk Hunt: $4,000 USD/PP (1x1 Guided +$1,250)

Interesting that next year, Colorado archery elk seasons, for both residents and nonresidents, most likely will go all limited draw and that issue is being promoted by most Colorado outfitters and CPW staff. The majority of Resident elk bow hunters support allowing residents to maintain OTC but restrict non residents by OTC caps or all limited draw. This issue will be finalized at the June 11/12 Commission meeting in Winter Park Co.

Paul no mater what the 2024 season will still have OTC. I am certainly not ready to say it mostly likely will go all draw for residents. I'd say maybe or possibly but not yet most likely. Fingers crossed

From: cnelk
Even all draw will have quotas set so high there won’t be a difference

"promoted by most Colorado outfitters and CPW staff." How many outfitters have you talked to?
