October is prime hunting in Colorado and every fall we get a few hunting groups out to our Colorado guest ranch. Hunters come to our guest ranch for a little different reasons than those looking for family dude ranch vacations but they are always a lot of fun to have around and always bring back to the ranch GREAT stories of their hunting experiences of the day.
One of the best stories from this hunting season was when the guys came upon a group of 40+ elk! This was just down the road a few miles from our Colorado guest ranch and the hunters were so excited. As they were tracking the herd, the guys soon realized all the elk were just over the fence on private property! The hunters couldn’t believe it! A huge herd of elk and they couldn’t even shoot at a single one! I remember when they came back to our dude ranch that night for dinner. The guys were going on and on about this huge herd of elk they weren’t even able to shoot at. The next couple days the hunters stayed after this herd until the elk finally crossed over to national forest land. Then, at last, they were able to try and get one! This story is just a sample of the fun and excitement hunters always seem to have out at our Colorado guest ranch.
Kelvin and Kurtis (two oldest Tesch brothers) typically go hunting every fall as well. This year Kelvin got a mule deer. This meat goes a long way in feeding his family through the winter months. They are very fortunate to be able to feed their children organic, healthy, hormone and steroid free meat! Plus, Bridget knows how to make everything taste delicious!
