Walker ranch in unit 2 Colorado is surrounded by thousands of acres of BLM (parts of your hunt may be conducted on BLM - public land) 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 adjoining BLM has little to no water so the elk eat, drink and sleep on the Walker ranch. Many of the elk stray onto the surrounding 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) 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 elk hunting and trophy Colorado mule deer hunting in unit 2 for over half a century. The Walkers started guiding trophy mule deer hunters almost 50 years ago, but have since spent all their time chasing cattle.
Hunting cabins in 4 different locations on their property 3 at higher elevations and one at a lower elevation that allows hunters to stay 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 located on and around our unit 2 Colorado elk ranch.
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 waterholes and springs make it great for bow hunting in unit 2 Colorado 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 accessible 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 in Colorado unit 2. The hunting transportation requirements are really up to you and the vehicle you have available. When hunters choose a fully guided hunt the transportation is provided.
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 morning 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 an 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 lifelong resident of the Maybell, Colorado area he has spent thousands of hours chasing mountain lions, elk, mule deer, turkey, and antelope right here on Douglas 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 the 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.Portions of this hunt may be conducted on BLM public lands.
