Colorado Black Powder Hunting
Bulls bugling on a crisp autumn morning, rays of sunlight peeking over the mountainside, a puff of black powder in the air, the nostalgia of days long gone, all make a muzzleloader hunt an exciting adventure you will never forget. The combination of hunting elk in the rut and the exhilaration of close encounters while hunting with primate weapons make black powder trips extraordinary. However, black powder licenses are the most coveted tags in Colorado. High success rates and an unforgettable hunt are a great reward that makes up for the time it takes to obtain a license.
