Boulder County manages elk at Ron Stewart Preserve using limited hunting and other resource management tools.
2019 Hunting Season
People interested in hunting at Ron Stewart Preserve must first apply for a GMU 20 rifle elk hunting license with hunt code E-F-020-L3-R through Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Hunters who obtain that license will be contacted with information about how to apply for our random drawing. All selected hunters will be required to pass a shooting proficiency test and attend an orientation.
Please note that the E-F-020-L3-R license is only valid in a small area of unit 20. Hunters should obtain other landowner’s permission in case they are not selected in our random drawing. Please see page 41 of the 2019 Big Game brochure for details.
If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This hunting program is solely and specifically permitted as a resource management tool. There is no cost to the hunter beyond the existing Colorado Parks and Wildlife license system and Boulder County does not receive any additional revenue. Recreational hunting at Ron Stewart Preserve at Rabbit Mountain or any other open space property is strictly prohibited.
