Craig The Colorado Division of Wildlife and a private landowner in the Meeker area plan to offer a special late season cow elk hunt in late November and December.
Officials will select six hunters for an unguided elk hunt on the 2,900-acre Berryman property.
Selected hunters must have a valid late-season, private land only cow elk license for unit 23 or an unfilled youth elk license from an earlier rifle season.
This hunt is open to anyone who is interested and eligible. To apply, hunters must submit a letter of interest including their name, date of birth, contact information and conservation identification number.
Applicants also must submit a short note about why they should be selected. Minors also should include the name and contact information for a parent or guardian who will attend the hunt with the youth.
Applications must be received at the Meeker DOW office by 5 p.m. Nov. 9. They can be mailed to Bailey Franklin/Special Late Season Hunt, P.O. Box 1181, Meeker, CO 81641.
Six hunters will be randomly selected from eligible applicants. The selected hunters will be notified by Nov. 16 with hunt details and specific dates.

Some mailed ballots returned
Lila Herod, chief deputy clerk and recorder for Moffat County, said the U.S. Postal Service has returned 87 mail-in ballots as undeliverable.
Residents who requested mail-in ballots should have received them in the mail.
Officials are not allowed to forward ballots, so those who should have received one are encouraged to pick them up at the clerk's office in the Moffat County Courthouse, 221 W. Victory Way.
