Ranch Hunting Rules
Due to the size of the ranch, maps of the ranch are not sent to successful applicants, but are available at check in. The maps cost $20 which will be refunded to you when you check out and return the map in good condition. Some other ranch rules include:
- You must check in at the designated check in point prior to the hunt and also when your hunt is completed, successful or not.
- Please look before you shoot. A lot of cattle and horses are the same color as game animals.
- Stay on established roads and trails.
- No open fires, no littering, no dogs on ranch property.
- Gates should be left as you find them, when in doubt close the gate.
- No camping is permitted. Off site camping areas are available in Kim, and public camping is allowed on the Comanche National Grasslands.
- We don’t allow consumption of alcoholic beverages while on the ranch.
- Please do not gut animals near water sources, nor clean knives or wash hands in water supplies. If needed, you may remove water from tanks for rinsing away from the water source.
- One person may accompany the licensed hunter while hunting.
- Coyotes may be hunted by licensed RFW hunters while on the ranch in pursuit of their deer or antelope.
- Obey all state and federal game laws.
- Return maps and Ranch ID cards and report hunting results when checking out.
Violation of Ranch rules may result in loss of hunting privileges and expulsion from the Ranch.
Camping is not available at the ranch, but camping is available in Kim and on the Commanche National Grasslands. Both are very accessible and are centrally located for Rimrock Ranch.
Nearest motel is in La Junta approximately 75 miles north of the ranch.
Some areas of the ranch may be closed for safety reasons.
Hunters should be aware that the density of deer on the eastern plains is much lower than they might find in mountainous areas of Colorado. However, herd composition is of very good quality with a greater proportion of deer herds made up of mature bucks. Hunters should expect that locating a good quality buck may entail hunting over large geographic areas in rugged canyon country. Likewise, doe hunting, while less rigorous will still require good effort. Due to the lower densities of deer, license numbers are conservative even on very large ranches.
