Hunting

Mountain River Lodge is bordered by 4 hunting areas!

Every hunter is different when it comes to what they are looking for on a great hunting trip. Whether you are from the area and know exactly where your perfect spot is, or if you are new to the Colorado area, there isn’t a wrong place to go! Cripple Creek has over 50% public grounds. From the mountains to the plains, there are many hunting opportunities in Cripple Creek, Colorado. Park County and Teller County also provide numerous hunting opportunities. Hunting is a great way to get together with friends and family while taking in the beauty of nature all at the same time. Each time you hunt, you can learn more about the wildlife and their habitats specific to the location in which you are hunting.

Hunting in Colorado

Did you know that Colorado has nearly 23-million acres of public land with one of the biggest elk populations in the world? Some other big-game animals you can hunt in Colorado are:

  • Elk
  • Moose
  • Mule
  • Whitetail Deer
  • Pronghorn

Just like any other city in our western state, the weather around Lake George can be very unpredictable. Many hunters choose to rise early and going to bed late so you should be prepared for all sorts of weather conditions. The weather in Colorado can affect the whereabouts of specific wildlife, so research the morning before you head off on your hunting trip.
