If you are building points in Colorado and are looking for a great hunt, this is it....
I have personally hunted with this outfitter and can honestly say that I don't think you will find a more honest hard working outfitter. All hunts are guided by the family and close friends. They have been operating in their area for many years and know every square inch!
Hunts are typically by vehicle transportation to the chosen hunting spot for the day and then on foot. The outfitter will tailor the hunt to the hunter's capability. Average age of the hunters on this hunt is 60-70 years old.
Success on this hunt over the years has been 95% with close to 100% shooting opportunity on bulls over 300". 2013's average was 324" out of 10 bulls taken. Expectations on this hunt should be around 320"....preference point hunt or landowner hunt, size expectations should be the same.
The unit you will be hunting is a trophy unit that requires drawing a tag or buying a landowner tag. Deadline for the preference point tags is April 1st. Points usually needed to draw this hunt.
Archery: 17 points to 18 points
Muzzleloader: 19 to 20 points
1st season rifle elk: 19 points to 20 points
2nd, 3rd season and 4th season rifle elk: 16 to 17 points
** Guaranteed hunts with landowner tags hunts are also available at an extra cost **
* 5 full hunting days (2x1) - Outfitter does try make it a 1x1 but it depends on the number of hunters in camp. Even if 2x1, it is usually only
for a portion of the hunt as some hunters tag out early.
* Cabin accommodations. There are 2 cabins on the property - the one cabin is an open layout that sleeps a max. of 6 (usually 4), while the other
cabin consists of 2 bedrooms that sleeps 4 - 2 in each.
* Home cooked meals
* Transportation during the hunt
* Game retrieval - horses are sometimes used for retrieval....nothing else
* Meat processing if wanted
* Travel to/from the outfitters base
Cost of the hunt is $5,000.00 ($5,500 starting in 2016). For landowner tag hunts, please call.

My brother and his friend just returned from hunting with this outfitter Nov. 12-16, 2014 and had a fantastic hunt. This hunt was a landowner tag hunt. Also in camp was a group of 4 that were hunting elk on a preference point hunt. Since I do not know the hunters I have blurred out their faces....this group was from Missouri
