    I think you'll be pleased with southwestern Colorado, with Archuleta and La Plata counties. I had a small property in Pagosa Springs for 16 years, and it was a sportsman's paradise, but I suggest you explore from just west of Durango to Pagosa Springs to see if the communities appeal to you. The property values are favorable. Whether you hunt, fish, kayak, or enjoy scenic & wildlife photography, this is a remarkable piece of Ameriica. I remind you, the field elevation is lofty and the winter snows start early and remain for quite a while, but it is a very special part of the country.

      no reason to buy with so much public land available.

        I just moved from Colorado Springs. In your previous post you got some good advice on locations and also from Ed. As long you are West of I-25 you will find Elk, Mulies, Bighorns, etc. Plenty of public land also. I would also look into some archery. The season is ALOT longer and there are far fewer peoplew out there. If you get an over the counter rifle elk tag, expect to see nothing but blaze orange.

          NW Colorado has the largest Elk herds in the US. The area also offers good mule deer and antelope but not in the numbers that the SW corner does. The area around Craig has a mix of private and public lands. Last fall there were multiple properties for sale in the area around Hamilton, just south of Craig on Hwy 13 that were reasonably priced.

            Another vote for the northwestern part of Colorado.

              All of the answers posted here are good ones. However, if your pockets are deep enough there is(at last report) a 2200 acre property in hunt unit 40 near grand junction that is surrounded by other private properties and wilderness that leaves you virtually secluded. This property is in an area that is managed by the wildlife dept as a trophy area. I doubt that you will find better hunting anywhere. This property is not cheap. Bring a very healthy checkbook. You get what you pay for.
