Hunts are conducted on public lands and private ranches in units 6, 7, 8, 18, 19, 191, 20, and 29. Colorado has some of the best Shiras Moose. Harvesting a bull in the 50” class is a possibility. Bulls in the mid to upper 40” class are definitely there and will often make the B&C minimum of 155. Many bulls have been harvested recently that make the P&Y and B&C record books, including the new #4 B&C and the new #1 SCI. These are the largest Shiras Moose taken anywhere in 50 years. Our hunters have taken six of the top ten moose ever taken in Colorado. In 2010, one of my hunters took a bull over 180 B&C and in 2009 my hunters took one bull over 180 B&C and two others over 170 B&C. In 2007, my hunters, including one Governor’s Tag hunter, took two giant bulls in the 170 and 180 class including the new #3 for Colorado.
We also guided Will Primos to a big 46” P&Y bull. In 2006, my clients, including one Governor’s Tag hunter, took two giant bulls in the 180 class. In 2005, my clients took four big moose, two of which made the B&C book. In 2002, they took three record book bulls including a 171 B&C bull taken by the Governor's Auction Tag holder, a 160 P&Y, 53" bull for an archer and a 150 B&C bull for a rifle hunter. In 2001, I outfitted the Governor's Auction Tag hunter as well as four hunters who drew tags. These hunters took four B&C moose and a P&Y moose! The largest bull scored 182 B&C (53") and was the new #3 for Colorado! In 2000, I outfitted both the Governor's Tag hunters as well as two hunters who drew. They harvested three B&C moose! In 1999, I outfitted both the Governor’s Raffle Tag hunter and the Governor’s Auction Tag hunter. The raffle tag hunter harvested a 43” B&C bull. The auction tag hunter turned down six B&C bulls while in search of the new world record bull. In 1998, I outfitted the Governor’s Tag hunter who harvested a 48” B&C bull scoring 161 2/8ths. My hunters take B&C bulls every year.


SERVICES
The hunts include a 1:1 hunter to guide ratio, six hunting days, lodging, meals, transportation during the hunt, game packing, caping of the trophy, preseason scouting, and recommendations on game processors and taxidermy. Lodging is comfortable with hearty meals served for breakfast and supper. Sack lunches are taken into the field each day.


LICENSES
The draw system works similar to the Colorado sheep/goat system (three preference points is the maximum you can obtain). However, after an applicant has the three points, the applicant's application will have a better chance of drawing each year as weighted points are assigned after you reach three preference points. We recommend non-residents apply for unit 6 or 7 because of the large bulls available. Residents apply in unit 19, 20, 6, 7, or 29. Call me if you would like to buy some raffle tickets for a Gov.’s Tag.
