with the state’s largest herd of elk and sec­ond-largest herd of mule deer, Colorado’s Flat Tops Wilderness can help you fill the freezer and take home some bone for less than $1,000. It’s not go­ing to be easy, though, es­pe­cially if you lack horse sup­port. Ex­pect to hike in 2 to 3 miles ev­ery day or back­pack in and set up camp. For 2017, the sec­ond-sea­son combined deer/elk ri­fle sea­son, which has solid odds for cow and deer hunters with no pref­er­ence points, runs October 21–29. Tags for both deer and cow elk are draw-only, and the dead­line is April 4. Missed it? Look for left­over li­censes for cows, which should be plen­ti­ful start­ing Au­gust 1.
