Montrose Elk HuntingMontrose, CO is located on the western slopes about 55 miles west of the Blue Mesa Reservoir. J & D Outfitters has exclusive caretaker and hunting rights to over 20,000 acres of private ranches in GMU # 64, 65 and 70, some of which border the Black Canyon National Park. We continue to procure additional private ranches in the area in an effort to bring about ample opportunities for our clients from drop camps to fully guided hunts. As seen with our results, our elk and deer populations continue to grow in leaps and bounds, while Montrose County continues to be one of the top counties for producing trophy quality bucks. These ranches will provide excellent harvest opportunities for elk, mule deer, and bear.

Hunting Tactics...
We will offer limited archery, muzzleloader and rifle hunts for elk, deer, and bear hunts on these ranches.

Tactics used during all seasons consist of cow talk, bugling, spot and stalk, glassing and tree-stand or ground blind hunting. We base our tactics on the temperature, elk movements and amount of snowfall. This limited amount of hunting pressure and harvest, along with proper wildlife management techniques, will allow you excellent harvest opportunities on trophy bull elk, deer and bear.
