~Our lodge is not open except by reservation for the first and fourth rifle seasons. We would be happy to lodge your group if you would like to hunt either of these draw seasons if you have a group of at least ten. In order to make certain your group is not split in the draw you will need to fill out a group application when you apply for your license. April 7th is the dead line for putting in these applications. Please contact the Colorado DOW for information on this.

AREA UNITS 80 & 81
