The archery and muzzle-loader seasons come alive in September with the sound of bull elk bugling, as the rut is in full swing. These hunts begin by traveling into the Flat Top Wilderness Area on horseback. Archery deer and elk seasons can be accommodated by drop camp or guided buck and bull hunts. (Calling the elk in for the archery hunters is Tel’s specialty.)

There are four rifle seasons, from October through the middle of November. Season dates and lengths vary from year to year.

NOTE: For those born after Jan 1,1949, a hunter safety card is required to obtain any Colorado License.

If you need lodging in Meeker before or after the hunt, please call Blue Spruce Inn 970-878-0777 or The Meeker Hotel 970-878-5255 .

The Flat Tops Wilderness Area is rich with elk. Archery season, muzzleloader season, and first rifle season are all lottery drawing. Also all deer licenses are on a drawing. The applications for the licenses can be obtained from DOW at their web site ( or their phone number is 303-297-1192.
