Walker ranch in unit 2 Colorado is surrounded by thousands of acres of BLM and the Dinosaur National Monument (where no hunting is allowed). The monument helps to create a buffer zone with no hunting and is a great asset in keeping the pressure off the elk. The Walker ranch has several springs and waterholes and most of the adjoing BLM has little to no water so the elk eat, drink and sleep on the Walker ranch. Many of the elk stray onto the surounding lands but always return for that evening drink and nightly rendezvous with the cows (girls). The ranch consists of over 20,000 acres (deeded and lease combined) and the property location allows us access to thousands of additional acres of BLM that are either not accessible to the general public or extremely difficult to access.
Wanda Walker's Ranch has been famous for trophy Colorado mule deer hunting and trophy Colorado elk hunting in unit 2 for over half a century. The Walkers started guiding trophy mule deer hunters from Texas almost 50 years ago, but have since spent all their time chasing cattle.
Hunting cabins in 3 different locations on their property 2 at higher elevations and one at a lower elevation that allow hunters to live where the elk and mule deer are and not have to spend countless hours driving each day to and from the various awesome hunting spots.
The south end of the ranch is located just east of Zenobia Peak and the north end is located east of Jack Springs. With nearly 20 springs and water holes on the private ground the big game animals frequent the ranch. These water holes and springs make it great for bow hunting, or just getting a great close up look at unit 2 elk and unit 2 mule deer. There are several roads through the ranch and most areas are accesible via ATV, UTV or horseback. Most hunters utilize 4wd trucks to travel long distances and/or Polaris Rangers for most day to day travel around the hunting ground. The hunting transportation requirements are really up to you and the vechicle you have available. When hunters choose a fully guided hunt the transportation is provided.
Colorado unit 2 mule deer hunting: on the Walker Ranch started with guided hunts back in the 60's with a large group of Texans making an annual visit to the ranch. The trophy quality suffered during the 90's but has stormed its way back to proportions near those of days gone by. Over the last 5 years we have taken 5 bucks from 194 gross up to 208 gross. We strickly limit the number of hunters to insure we keep our trohy success rate high and maintain our management goals. The management of our food supply has made a dramatic impact on the number of deer uitilizing our ranch during the fall and in some of our upper parks/meadows a hunter can often see 60 to 70 deer while taking a drive from the cabin at Chicken Springs to the log house at the Maddux place.
Colorado unit 2 elk hunting: has long been one of the top 2 trophy elk hunting GMU's or game management units in the entire state. The awesome bull to cow ratio brings the daily sighting of multiple bull elk to the norm instead of the exception. I have personally bugled in over 15 bulls on more than one occasion in the peak of the rut. During one archery season outfitter/guide and good friend Lonny Vanatta bugled in over 25 bulls in one mornings hunt before his hunter arrowed a big Colorado unit 2 elk while it was fighting another bull.
Colorado unit 2 Antelope hunting: has been in the "trophy" group of GMU's in Colorado for many years. The best hunting is down in the flats and our guides are great at finding and putting hunters in position to harvest a antelope buck of their dreams.
Colorado unit 2 mountain lion hunting: is done from one of 3 locations in the unit and Rod's hounds are well trained and Rod knows the country like the back of his hand. As a life long resident of the Maybell area he has spent thousands of hours chasing mountain lions, elk, mule deer, turkey and antelope right here on Douglass Mountain and Bears Ears.
Colorado unit 2 turkey hunting: can be done on the Walker Ranch and our ranch holds most of the turkeys in the entire game management unit. The original release of turkeys in this area was done on our ranch and if you wish to hunt turkeys in unit 2 Colorado you need to give us a call. There are very few birds on public ground and in the spring most of the turkeys roost along a ridge that runs right behind the house and one of Wanda's cabins. Call for current pricing and availability on afully guided hunts and/or trespass fees.
