Area Maps: USGS Quads - Moffat County U​SGS 1:50,000: sheet 1, Routt County USGS 1:50,000: sheet 1

Species Available: Elk, Deer, Pronghorn

Elevation: 6,000 to 10,000 ft.​

Terrain: The vegetation varies from rolling sagebrush hills up to mountain shrub to aspen and mixed aspen/spruce-fir forest. Water courses drain to Slater Creek and onto the Snake River near the Colorado–Wyoming border which lies only 3 to 6 miles north. 

Access: Due to the timing of some hunts, the ranch feels that it is important that hunters have a 4-wheel drive vehicle. If a hunter does not have a 4-wheel drive vehicle, there are some areas of the ranch that are accessible from County Road 1. However, hunters must be aware that some of these areas will only get them in the proximity of game and may require further access by foot or horseback. Hunters with a 4-wheel drive vehicle should keep in mind that roads can be a safety hazard in certain weather conditions and may be closed as a precaution. ATVs are allowed but will not be allowed off-road use.

Camping: Not allowed on ranch

Game Retrieval Services:  Hunter responsibility; retrieval services may be available for a fee, dependent upon staff member and equipment availability.

Guiding Services: Not provided

Overnight Accommodations: Motels are available in Craig, CO and Baggs, WY​. Camping is available in Routt National Forest and in several BLM tracts close to the ranch.

Season Dates: Check the Hunting Information page.

Antler-point restrictions for elk vary by ranch. Please refer to the brochure for more information​​. ​No over-the-counter licenses are offered on these properties. Ranching for Wildlife licenses are open to Colorado residents only. Licenses are only for the season and ranch on the license. For more information on season dates and application deadlines, see the Big Game Hunting Brochure

Ranch Rules: View the Snake Rive​r​ Ranch Rules​.

Additional Information: Snake River RFW is located in an area where elk are substantially over herd objective and the elk herd is migratory. Since antlered elk do not always remain on the ranch and harvest levels off the ranch are high, the size of bulls available to hunters should not be considered "trophy" class.

Due to staff limitations and the volume of telephone inquiries, calls are returned a few hours each day in the order they are received.
