Hunting in Beautiful Settings


Hunting in Delta County is a long tradition that starts with early man, Native American Indian populations and Settlers. Today some of those same traditions hold true as people are returning to their food source. Hunters are providing sustainable meats knowing where it has been feeding and being responsible in the taking of the animal. It might sound “foo foo” to some old timers, but the efforts to use wild game in the diet is the same.





Hunting in Delta County

Whether their interests lean toward big game, waterfowl, or anything in between, hunters set their sights on Delta County. The West Elk Wilderness – the fifth largest wilderness in Colorado – is located just outside of Crawford on the eastern edge of Delta County and offers some of the best elk hunting in Colorado. Deer, antelope, bear and mountain lion are also plentiful here.

Located along the western edge of Delta County, the Uncompahgre Plateau is nationally-renowned for its hunting hot spots. Crawford State Park in the southern portion of Delta County boasts great waterfowl hunting. Finally, the Grand Mesa National Forest in northern Delta County is also abundant with wildlife.

Upland game bird hunting is at its finest in Delta County. Join a club or call to reserve a trip with one of the guides. Black Canyon Wing and Clay or Gunnison River Expeditions/North Rim Hunt Club can help you stake out the best spots in the area. High quality amenities and accommodations are available.

Big game hunting outfitters and guides know the habitats and terrain for the most successful hunting expeditions. Contact Uncompahgre Hunt Club or Bryce Outfitting.
