The same ranches have been secured for the 2020 season, Coyte and Indian/Creek Trownsell. We will continue to hunt Indian Creek and Trownsell Ranches as one ranch. All of our hunts are 7 days long except for archery on Indian Creek and the 1st and 4th rifle which are 5-day seasons, rifle antelope which is a 3-day hunt. Please note that Black Elk Outfitters LLC offers neither guided nor outfitted hunts.
For 2020 the season structure will be the same as 2019. There will be 4 rifle seasons for elk as before, but the 1st and 4th seasons will be by drawing or on left over licenses. The 2nd and 3rd seasons will be combined elk and deer seasons with bull elk being unlimited, deer by drawing. During the combined seasons bull elk licenses will be unlimited in the areas we hunt. All deer licenses for all methods of take are by drawing. Deer seasons are concurrent with the elk seasons, except for the Early Deer season, which is the last week in September.
The 2020 season dates can be found at- https://cpw.state.co.us/Documents/Hunting/HunterEd/HuntPlanner.pdf
In our areas there are always leftover licenses available for the 1st and 4th rifle seasons as well as left over cow elk licenses. These leftover licenses go on sale in August in person or by phone and online.
