Additional Information: This ranch is located in Game Management Unit 10. This unit is managed as a quality unit for elk and deer by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The conservative management of this unit enhances the opportunity to harvest older age class bulls and bucks on this ranch. Consequently, it may require a high number of preference points to draw.
