Big game hunting has always been outstanding in Northwest Colorado as evidenced by this photograph c. 1900. From A. G. Wallihan, the renowned photographer, and his shots of northwest Colorado wildlife, to the in-state or out-of-state hunter, our elk, deer, and antelope have always been an important element to the way of life and to the economy of this corner of Colorado.
The hunter is welcomed in the fall of each year and hopefully sent home, wherever that may be, his game tagged and a pleasant experience to relate to the folks back home.
