The countryside around Montrose offers hunting adventure for every level of sportsman, and many options for different game throughout the year.

You’ll find trophy-quality elk, deer, antelope, mountain lions, sheep, waterfowl, and rabbits - the choices are as vast as the Colorado backcountry itself. Montrose even holds a yearly drawing for moose season. 

The terrain is beautiful and varied, and provides a perfect habitat for the many animals that thrive here. Hunters should come prepared for two things: rapidly changing weather conditions (it is the Rockies, after all), and to bring home some of the most impressive results they’ve ever seen!
