Hunting - Sangre de Cristo Mountains

This is what you’ve been hunting for all along.

With populations of elk and deer numbering in the thousands, it’s safe to say there’s a trophy Elk, Deer, Mountain Lion, or Big Horn Sheep here at Trinchera with your name on it. But this is more than the hunt of a lifetime. Trinchera Ranch treats our guests to a full-service hunting experience, from expert guides to retrieval and skinning of the harvested animal.

Deer-only rifle hunts feature one guide for every two hunters. Bowhunting, with one dedicated guide per hunter, is available for both elk and deer. Other big game species include mountain lion and bighorn sheep on a limited basis. We encourage hunters to bring their own equipment but a bow will be provided if necessary. Processing of game meat, taxidermy and shipping can all be coordinated at the guest’s cost.

As an authorized state licensing agent, Trinchera can issue your hunting licenses directly from the ranch. We’ll send you the required License Application Form for completion prior to your arrival. You will be asked to sign our Wounded Animal Policy Form and Standard Release Form upon arrival.
