Ron Stewart Preserve at Rabbit Mountain will be closed to the public Monday through Wednesday early September through January 31, 2019, for elk management through limited hunting. Three hunters with access permits will be allowed on the property per week. Hunters will also be permitted on Indian Mountain, which is closed to the public, for the remaining four days of each week.
This hunting program is solely and specifically permitted as a resource management tool. Recreational hunting at Ron Stewart Preserve at Rabbit Mountain or any other open space property is strictly prohibited.
Hunters interested in participating should apply for a GMU 20 rifle elk hunting license with hunt code E-F-020-L3-R through Colorado Parks & Wildlife. Applications close April 3, 2018.
License holders from this sub-unit will then need to participate in a second draw for the Boulder County access permit. Selected hunters will be required to pass a shooting proficiency test, must be 16 years or older, and attend a mandatory on-site orientation before given an access permit.
We anticipate more applicants than slots available so it is advisable that persons considering hunting at Ron Stewart Preserve at Rabbit Mountain have alternative private land permission lined up.
