Eastern Plains Trophy Whitetail Deer Hunts

Sessions Wt Buck-2013 400 2Colorado's best kept secret is the boomer whitetails and mule deer that inhabit the eastern plains. Our farms are located along over six (6) miles of the Arkansas River bottom, just east of Lamar, Colorado. This area is regarded by "those in the know"as one of the best trophy deer hunting areas of the Midwest.

Colorado is a fair chase state and it is illegal to hunt over attractants and bait, like in many other states. The most effective way to hunt these Colorado monarchs is from strategically placed tree stands and ground blinds in travel corridors, rutting areas and on the edge of bedding areas. We have placed over twenty-five (25) tree stands and ground blinds in areas which take advantage of big buck movement throughout our farms. Many of our stands have been strategically placed in staging areas for the large bucks as they go to and come from bedding and feeding areas. We have a very high buck to doe ratio and our bucks tend to be very aggressive and visible during the rut, which lasts from November into December. Our buck to doe ratio is so high, it is not unusual to hear or see bucks fighting over does. This high ratio also makes the bucks very susceptible to calling and rattling at the right stages of the season. You can also spot and stalk big bucks as the opportunity arises. While our ranches are large and we have numerous stand locations, we do not over-pressure the deer. Therefore, hunting groups of 1 to 3 hunters are all we take at one time. This keeps the big bucks in place and maximizes your probability of taking a trophy. Our farms are managed for trophy hunting, as we do not allow bucks to be harvested under the Pope & Young minimum of 125 inches rough measurement. Any hunter harvesting a buck under this minimum will be assessed an additional harvest fee. We want you to have a mature buck hanging on your wall and we want those younger bucks to keep growing! If you harvest one of these Colorado's monarchs, you have truly earned it!

  • Arkansas River ValleyThese hunts will take place in southeast Colorado, along the Arkansas River. In addition to over six (6) miles of tamarisk and cottonwood Arkansas River bottom, our farms also cover thousands of acres of corn, wheat and alfalfa adjacent to sage flats and bedding areas.
  • Accommodations and meals will be the hunters’ responsibility and expense. There are numerous motels and restaurants in the area which will meet your needs.

Hunt Testimonials

"I'm a worldwide trophy hunter and resident of Lamar Colorado. When I bought my late season rifle tag, I jumped at the chance to hunt with the Palmers at RMS. RMS's farms are known to hold the biggest whitetails in the state. Michael Jr. really knows how to put you on the big bucks. Great hunt! I strongly recommend RMS for your trophy hunt."
