Colorado Hunt

I have a chance to Elk hunt Slater park/California Park this fall and would like to know what to expect for game numbers and hunter numbers.
Thanks, Frank

Re: Colorado Hunt

It looks like you will be hunting unit 441 or 214. The last population report for that area (including those two units and 3, 301, 4, 5 & 14) was 15,810. As far as hunter numbers go, that depends on what season you are hunting. You won't be able to know for sure though as these units get included in with a couple of other units.

Re: Colorado Hunt

This page should help you, it has all of the statistics the DOW puts out: Statistics | Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

For this year, it looks like there are 300 cow tags and 1,300 bull tags for first season for Units 3, 4, 5, 214, 301, and 441. I assume you already applied and drew your tag?

Re: Colorado Hunt

We are going to try for second season over the counter, if there are none then we will find something else to do.

Re: Colorado Hunt

There are unlimited over the counter bull tags for that entire area for 2nd season, so you should be good. There might end up being extra cow tags available depending on which unit you end up hunting.

Re: Colorado Hunt

Hunted lower part of California Park off of road 80? two years past. There were lots of campers and foot hunters like me. The timber close to the roads had plenty of orange vests. The groups that had horses could get far back in and had some nice elk/deer the show for it. Cows were moving around good, but my group saw only bull before it vanished in thin air. We took two cows and young,dumb deer. Rent horses!
