This ranch is one of the most remote ranches in the state and holds a large diversity of game. The outdoorsman fee includes lodging for your entire hunt. IO payment process is as follows: A reservation fee that is non-refundable. 50% of the outdoorsman fee will process 2 weeks after the Colorado limited license draw results are processed. The additional 50% will process 1 month prior to your arrival on the property to hunt.

Game and habitat information

Right in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, lies the Horse Thief Ranch. This ranch holds an abundance of game and for a good reason, this region in Colorado is renowned for the diversity of productive habitat. Bighorn Sheep in particular utilize the understory in both mountain shrub areas and rocky outcroppings. Sheep will target these areas due to the abundance of broad-leaf plants "forbs" for short. Ponderosa Pine forests and large Aspen groves on the ranch are excellent places to target bedding and feeding animals due to the abundance of understory vegetation and screening cover that they offer. Another tactic is to look for rocky outcroppings and steeper terrain where you might find Sheep grazing in the early mornings and evenings. This Ranch is bordered by national forest land, with exceptional Sheep habitat, that's difficult to access without this ranch. Hunters must be strategic in their approach, use the land to your advantage, lots of glassing, watch the wind, and position yourself with patience to capitalize on the right opportunity. That being said, Horse Thief Ranch is a must for your next Bighorn Sheep hunting adventure.
