Game and habitat information

Pettee Plains Ranch is located right in the heart of Unit 50. The Elk are here for a reason, this region in Colorado is renown for the abundance and diversity of productive habitat. This region in Colorado is also known for its Large Elk populations. Elk in particular, utilize draws and vegetation available in the colder months as the higher elevation weather will push them down to this elevation. This property offers close proximity to water as well as winter time forage including bromegrasses, bunchgrasses and fescue located at this area and elevation band. Elk in this scenario will bed in draws and thicker bedding areas and move into the more open areas in the early morning and evening. Pressure from public land will also push more elk to utilize this property. 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, Pettee Plains Ranch is a must for your next Elk hunting adventure.
