Colorado Elk

Colorado Elk Hunts

We are you your next Colorado Elk Hunting Guide if your looking for a real outdoor adventure at a reasonable price, this is the hunt for you. Our elk hunts offer 3 different options depending on what kind of experience you are looking for.

  • National forest hunts – remote base camp, and access by truck, wheelers, or horses
  • High country horseback hunts- very remote base camp at timberline, and the most scenic hunt you can imagine.
  • Private land hunts – Accommodations are in a cabin, and a little more comfortable.

For all hunts, we provide a cook, warm home-cooked meals, Hardworking guides, trophy care, and everything we need for getting your animal off the mountain.

Typical days during our Colorado elk hunts consist of getting up 2 hours before sunrise, eating a light breakfast with coffee, then heading out to a morning hunt. We will provide lunch to take and eat on the trail, or head back to camp depending on how far we have traveled that morning. The animals are usually less active during the middle of the day, so a nap is always an option. We hunt the evening, which is when the animals are on the move towards their feeding areas. After the evening hunt, we will head back to camp, and enjoy a great dinner around the fire. Morning comes fast, so we like to make sure our hunters are well rested for the next day.
