Elk hunting property with Colorado hunting cabin
This 960 Sq. Ft. cabin built in 2006 sits on a 40 acre property located on the Ucompahgre Plateau. Known for its excellent elk hunting, the cabin sits in GMU 61—a trophy bull unit—and is only 3 miles from Divide Road and GMU 62. The well built cabin consists of a covered front porch with stunning views of the La Sal Mountain Range in Utah. The cabin features quality construction with 2×6 inch exterior walls and an R-34 insulation value. 3 oversized 2×12 headers sit above 3 special ordered picture windows in the living and dining rooms. A raised water tower holds a 500 gallon water tank for the domestic water supply and below the water tank is where the solar batteries and associated mechanical equipment resides. The cabin contains circuits wired for both A/C and D/C. There is a sleeping loft located above the kitchen and a bathroom is roughed in and nearly completed.
Out buildings include a 12’x14’ garage constructed with true 2×4 studs and corrugated metal siding and roof. There is also a very well-kept 27’ camper that has been remodeled to accommodate 5 people. A pole supported roof protects the camper from snowload and provides shade for the covered front porch of the trailer.
Western Colorado hunting cabin located in excellent elk hunting territory
The Uncompahgre Plateau starts from the Unaweep Canyon near Gateway to the north and stretches southernly toward Delta, Montrose, and Nucla. Bordered to the north by the Colorado River, west by the San Miguel and Dolores Rivers, and east by the Uncompahgre and Gunnison Rivers—the Uncompahgre Plateau stretches about 90 miles and incorporates about 2,290 square miles across 5 counties. Big game hunting on the Plateau is quite good for elk, mule deer and black bear. This Colorado hunting cabin sits in the trophy bull elk GMU 61, but is only a few miles from GMU 62 where over-the-counter elk tags are available. The property also borders the Uncompahgre National Forest and has public land access for ATV trails, hiking trails, equestrian trails and bird watching.
