The Quakey Park Ranch
The Quakey Park Ranch is where it all began and is known for the highest quality hunts we have to offer. Sitting at a breathtaking 9,000+ feet in elevation hunters can expect a very tough and challenging hunt with great rewards to those who dare to take on the challenge. The outfitters family homesteaded on this ground in the 1920’s and has built an astounding quality of Deer and Elk Management. With that being said it should come to no surprise that the outfitter and his guides have a vast understanding of the land and animal habits from season to season.Our Trophy Elk run the gauntlet for size on this ranch as we have a far better than typical “colorado average” on bulls. If wall hanger 6×6 or better Bull Elk is in your sights then this ranch is where you will fulfill all your elk hunting dreams. Bulls will run between 320 and 350+ with our average bull being in the 330 range. This is where quality is even better than quantity We have an off-balance of bulls with a 30 bulls to 100 cow ratio. You won’t find this ratio anywhere else and that is why we are so confident, and successful.
Our Trophy Mule deer run the gauntlet for size since this time of the year the deer are always moving because of the elk hunters in the woods constantly bumping them. We will see bucks that we have never seen before that show up in our private land hunting areas. Weather is an extremely important part of the hunt. As the saying goes, “The worse the weather the better hunting” could never be so true. The trophy hunter as a rule takes bucks between 170” and better depending on when the hunter pulls the trigger. These big bucks are smart and are 3 in 10 on this ranch which is extremely good odds for trophy bucks.
We are committed to providing you (client) the best possible hunt on this very sacred and coveted family ranch. We try to focus on, 170+ Mule Deer hunts and 300+ Bull Elk hunts. There is a limited amount of elk deer taken off this ranch per year. If you are wishing to fill a well-earned bucket list hunt or just enjoy the hunt of a lifetime the quality is here to stay. Come share this renowned quality hunt with us today.
Eastern Plains Ranch’s
KB Outdoors offers exclusive hunting rights on 40,000+ acres for Elk, Mule Deer and Pronghorn on the Eastern Plains of Colorado. These properties allows us to offer unique high-quality Elk, Mule Deer and Pronghorn hunting that cannot be found anywhere else on the plains of Colorado. The eastern plains are famous for producing big mule deer for many years as well as pronghorn and the occasional elk if you can find the right area. Due to the high popularity, limited draw, limited hunts offered and superb quality of these hunts, they do book at an extremely fast rate. Therefore if you have preference points we NEED to talk!
The are of Eastern Plains we hunt is historically famous for producing 180-200+ class mule deer that all boast 30+ inch spreads. With the decline of deer populations and age class deer like these are hard to come by but a few hunters do get lucky every year. We would like to under sell and over perform for our clients. As an average for our area we hunt and kill 165-175+ class bucks on average. Our largest buck to date was taken in 2019 and the buck scored 203 4/8, as a side note we had never seen this deer before nor did we have any knowledge he existed. Therefore once again we would rather under-sell and over perform! All deer licenses are obtained through Colorado’s draw process taking 4-12+ preference points to secure a tag for the late rifle in our area. We do have the option to procure landowner vouchers if our hunters that are unable to draw at a separate price being as these vouchers take the ranch just as much investment and time to draw just like the general public draw. If you are interested in hunting the ranch and do not have points give us a call to discuss getting a landowner voucher. Once again if you have points we NEED to talk!
Our ranches provide some of the best habitat the eastern plains’ has to offer for growing high-quality deer. Our ranch consists of a cottonwood creek bottom, numerous pinion, juniper and cedar canyons with mountain mahogany plants as well as various other highly sought after deer browse. In addition to the exceptional feed and habitat one will notice the age class of deer on the ranch which is directly correlated to the limited hunting options in the units the ranch resides in. ONLY 20 tags are given out for the entire unit for the hunting season, if that doesn’t scream high-quality animals I don’t know what does?
The Eastern Plains of Colorado offer a unique opportunity that allows our hunters to begin hunting elk in September on an either sex tag…. With a RIFLE! Yes, you heard me right a rifle. Elk hunts are conducted in September as the bulls are bugling and rutting. Now don’t think this is going to be a cake walk just because we are hunting at 5000 feet and lower this hunt is no different than any other elk hunt in Colorado its all about timing and being in the right place at the right time. Elk densities are much lower than many other areas in Colorado but beings that we can hunt during the rut with a rifle we have significantly increased our chances. Bulls can be observed in the 280-320+ range as an average with a few bulls going well over that mark. Once again we would rather under-sell and over perform. IF eastern plains elk is something that catches your eye give us a call or email today to book this very unique and limited opportunity as we only take 4 bulls per year off each ranch.
All hunts are conducted on a spot and stalk basis. We are very methodical in how we conduct these spot and stalks as the main goal is to keep our elk and deer on the property. With that being said patience is the key here it may take a couple days to get the right stalking situation in our favor. We manage these properties very tightly for only the highest quality of animals the area can provide. Not only do we provide high-quality animals but also a high-quality experience. For those of you that are willing to take the challenge and go on the hunt of a lifetime get in touch with us today to take advantage of the great hunting opportunity, the Eastern Plains has to offer!
