Some State Parks allow hunting: Search For Park - Colorado State Parks (http://parks.state.co.us/ParksSearch/ParksSearch.htm - broken link)

Click on Activities, then select hunting and it will display the state parks that allow that activity.

A very popular spot around here due to large bull elks and other wildlife is the Lookout Mtn/Scare Mtn area along Hwy 139 40 miles north of Loma.

No you have to acquire and pay for a permit.

CO Division of Wildlife


Also, not sure what you were planning on spending for 10-15 acres, but depending on location, you will either be excited or appalled.

Depends on what you're after and where you go. CO has gotten a lot more crowded and that carries over to outdoor activities and competing interests (i.e. you're highly likely to encounter other hunters, fishermen, hikers, cyclists, etc.) depending on where you go. Even the most remote places aren't so remote anymore, thanks to GPS, ATVs, etc.

Figure to run into other people, and if you don't, count yourself very lucky to have had such an experience - it's getting harder and harder to come by.
