Bow, Muzzleloader, Rifle-Elk, Deer, Bear-West Roan Creek Unit 30
1994 was the first year for many years that this ranch has been open for unguided hunters. Up to then only guided hunters were allowed. This is the part of Roan Creek Ranch that offers some early and late seasons trophy hunting for elk, deer and bear. The area has a resident herd, but with some snow, it pulls in game from other areas. With the right weather, this area can be better hunting later on in the season. I have been hunting this area since the mid 1960’s for deer with rifle hunters. With the increase of elk in the area, I have also started hunting the area for elk with bow and rifle hunters. Success on these hunts has run as high as 80% kill on bulls, 67% kill on four and five point bulls (western count). I have had hunts that had 100% shooting at large bulls. I have had hunters who have passed up five bulls before they shoot one. Along with the excellent elk hunting we also have some of the finest mule deer hunting anywhere. Bucks up to 40” spread have been shot and missed. Every year we get bucks close to the 30” class or at least see them. Unguided hunters will be able to access this area with dirt bikes, ATVs, walking and horses. I can help you find someone for horse rentals, if needed. All I furnish is access and private hunting on the hunt. Tent rentals are available. 1x1 deer and elk hunts available in the area.
Non-hunters are half price. One group of hunters can book the whole ranch on any of these hunts. Draw only for deer on all hunts. Deadline for drawing is April 4th. $200.00 for 10-day unguided bow hunts. $350.00 for 9-day unguided muzzleloader hunt. Call for price of deer voucher for unit 30.
